I changed from Sunni to Shia a few months ago. I understand that the exact moment of sunset is not the right time for maghrib and iftar as I think it is that the the orb of light of the sun also needs to go down. I have been adding ten minutes to sunset for maghrib up to this point but I would like to be more precise for iftar. I do not have a local Shia centre as I live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Also I don't know anywhere I can see the sun set without buildings being in the way. Thanks, for your help.
Salam Alykom I've always thought that Sayyed Khamenei was clear on his view that Maghreb (and when you are able to break your fast) is when the redness disappears from the eastern sky. However according to a Sheikh here in Sweden, Sayyed Khamenei allows you to follow another marja in this regard and therefore you can follow a marja that allows you to break your fast at sunset. Is Sayyed Khamenei's fatwa "Ihtiyat wajib" (obligatory precaution)? I've always thought he had a clear fatwa about this (and therefore you cannot follow another marja in this regard). Anyone who knows more about this, and if it's correct?
As Salaamu Alaykum The Sunni sect breaks fast for Ramadaan at the wrong time which is Maghrib (Sunset) and they have no bases at all in the Holy Qur'aan to support this. Allah has clearly prescribed Al Layl (The Night) for the correct time to break our fast. One thing that I have learnt is that the Shia Muslims break their fast at Al Layl (The Night) which is the correct time. For those who are interested in examining the evidence, the facts in the Qur'aan in regards to the correct time to break fast, feel free to download the pdf documents that I wrote. You can download the document in English or Arabic.

This is a question by a member who wishes to remain anonymous. I read somewhere that from the time of Sunset until the time of Maghrib that we should not pray. This might be because other people would see us praying and think either 1) we are praying too early or 2) they would rush to pray Maghrib when it was not Maghrib time yet. Is it true that there is a prohibition of praying between Sunset and Maghrib and we should only make dua during that time? If we are in our private room and nobody can see us praying, can we pray a prayer between Sunset and Maghrib, to make up a prayer that we missed from our past?
I have read Sahih al-Bukhari "Beginning of Creation" And it poses the question where does the sun go? In the explanation it states that the sun requests the permission to rise again and after a time it will be denied to rise and will instead rise in the west. In todays time we have advanced considerably and now realize that the earth itself is spinning as well as revolving around the sun. What is the explanation the prophets misunderstanding? Did God give him this poetry to encourage his understanding of the truth? Or is this an example of incorrect logic? is it the same as those who had believed the earth was flat?
