Actually the issue is not consensual between shia's scholars. there are some Maraje that believe you can do iftar at sunset like Sunnis and one of that Maraje was Ayatoallah Bahjat.

in the other side we have  the majority of Shia scholars  that say the iftar time is about fifteen minutes later or Maghreb. Ayatoallah Sistani and Khamenei.  so it depend on who are you following in the Maraje.

:salam: 

What about following the Qur'an? :grin:

Fasting is prescribed until night . . 

"...and eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appears to you distinct from its black thread. Then complete the fast till the night (Arabic: layl)..."

What does "night" mean? Does it start from sunset or later? Did the Arab at the time of the Prophet comprehend the same meaning from "Layl" that we do from "night"? Is the verse explained further by the Holy Prophet and his successors or not?

These are all the factors that make a difference in fatwas, and make it more complicated than just following the Qur'an.

According to the Arabic dictionaries, "night" (layl) starts at the moment the sun sets below the horizon.

Many scholars agree that sunset is probably the correct "maghrib" time, but since there are hadiths that may imply that maghrib is later, the precautionary position is to delay your salat and fast.

yes its true and as i told you before the verse is one reason that cause this dispute and we have some narrations that insists that the Maghreb is the criterion not Ghorob.
