Salaamun-aleykum 

I have been using http://www.praytime.info/ tool to generate prayers times as I traveled. But since few months ago it’s location setting software is not working stating some issue with google maps. 

Does anyone know who owns this software and if the developer can fix API to google maps. I really like that tool and have been using it for many years.  

Thanks

:salam:

It is due to the fact that Google open street map, a formerly free service, is now charging website using it, with very very expensive costs. So I take it Praytime fell victim to Google. You can still use it for your usual location timings, but you cannot choose a new one.

It was indeed the best timetable service IMO.

Prayers for its conceptors, I think it helped hundreds of thousands Muslims so may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) reward them abundantly.

Salam. This was my favorite prayer time site. I am sad that it is not working for all of us.

Yes, praying that those who created and maintained praytime.info site will be blessed abundantly.

PrayTime.info was established in 2006 by a non-affiliated group of Muslim students in Southern California and it is not a commercial website. You can contact them, if they are still taking messages, at the link: http://praytime.info/about.html

Salaamunaleykum, 

Jazāk Allāhu Khayran, 

I really appreciate care and brotherly love shown by all of you in providing help. Thanks for pointing to the tool prayertimes tool on Australian site.

There are couple of things that I will miss http://www.praytime.info/ tool very much.  My prayers for abundant rewards for those who were given this Taufeeq by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for developing this tool and others who have made similar tools.

http://www.praytime.info/ tool provided few things, which don’t seem to available in prayertimes tool. 

  • It allowed exact location based on long/latitude of location.
  • It allowed flexibility to customize the timetable as needed, eg 
  1. Ability to obtain Imsak Times (Sun 18 degree below horizon) by changing angle of Fajr 
  2. Standard Maghreb Times provided is based on 4 deg, is little too conservative based on observations of passing of redness overhead. Could change Angle for Maghreb. 
  3. Padding time for Dohr prayer - Add minutes 
  • Ability to create files of timetable, which can be easily converted / modifiable with word processing tools. 

As as I understand, the only issue is API to Google Maps. If only those who developed, could modify user interface requiring user of tool to enter Longitude and Latitude manually, I think the rest of software would work fine. Unfortunately, there seems to be no one is checking messages on the contact link provided, as I have sent few over last few weeks. I would love to fund / donate for this enhancement, as it may require hiring a software developer / tester. In MS-DOS / UNIX days, after all we needed to enter all of that manually to the tool to calculate prayertimes. 

In the meantime, I am using alQibla app, which does give flexibility of Customization. Insha’Allah I will check out the tool prayertimes on Australian site also. 

Thanks again! 

Jazāk Allāhu Khayran
