quoted sections are by ayatollah sistani. everything else are my conclusions from his rulings.




738: The time for Zuhr and Asr prayers is from when the sun starts declining at midday till sunset.

776: The Zuhr Nafilah is offered before Zuhr prayers. Its time is from the commencement of the time of Zuhr, up to the time when the shadow of indicator equals 2/7th of its length.

the best time for dhuhr nafl and fardh is from midday until 2/7 between midday and sunset.




777: The Asr Nafilah are offered before Asr prayers, and its time is till the moment when the shadow of an indicator appearing after Zuhr, reaches of 4/7th of its length

the best time for asr nafl and fardh is from 2/7 to 4/7 between midday and sunset.




743: The obligatory precaution is that as long as the redness in the eastern sky appearing after sunset has not passed overhead, Maghrib Salat should not be performed.

778: The Maghrib Nafilah should be offered after Maghrib prayers, and one should make an effort to offer it in time after Maghrib. However, if one delays offering Maghrib Nafilah till redness in the western sky disappears, then it would be better to offer Isha prayers at that moment.

the best time for maghrib fardh and nafl is from when the redness from the eastern sky disappears until when the redness from the western sky disappears.




779: The time for Isha Nafilah is from the completion of Isha prayers till midnight. It is better to offer it immediately, after Isha prayers.

the best time for isha fardh and nafl is when the redness from the western sky disappears.




781: The time for Salat al-Shab is from midnight till Adhan for Fajr prayers, and it is better to offer it nearer the time of Fajr prayers.

the best time for tahajjud is close to the fajr adhan.




749: Just before dawn a column of whiteness rises upwards from the east. It is called the first dawn. When this whiteness spreads, it is called the second dawn, and the Prime time for Subh prayers. The time for Subh prayers is till sunrise.

780: The Fajr Nafilah is offered before the Fajr prayers, and its time commences when Salat al-Shab has been completed, till the time of Salat al-Fajr draws near. But if someone delays it till redness is seen in the eastern sky, then it is better to pray Salat of Fajr.

the best time for fajr nafl and fardh is from 2nd dawn until redness appears in the eastern sky.


are my conclusions correct? if no, please correct me.

as-salamu alaikum
