The holy and blessed month of Ramadan is almost upon us, Muslims from all around the world wait for this sacred nine month in Muslim calendar in which observant Muslims are not allowed to eat or drink during daylight hours and are forbidden to engage themselves into any certain sinful activity. This is because fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, as well as five daily prayers; zakat, or almsgiving; and the hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. But one thing that is very vital in Ramadan for Muslims is none other than time, so that they can perform their celestial duties accordingly. From waking up in the early hours for a quick bite and sip of water in Suhoor, to the point they have to wait with a date in hand – for the seconds to tick by until the call to prayer at sunset in Iftaar. It is very essential that it should be performed on the right time of it; whether it’s “Suhoor” or “Iftaar”.
Rad Labs has made that job easier for us with their new intriguing website ‘Ramadan Times’. The website in short is ‘very helpful’ and user-friendly. The website allows users to see timings of Suhoor, Iftaar and even daily prayer timings of an entire year and it doesn’t matter whether u are in north pole or in a sahara desert or anywhere else in the world, just tap the application and it is available for you.
Everything is upfront on main page in pretty detailed view. There are three rectangle boxes; one for Suhoor/Iftaar timings which will indicate your daily fasting period. The other box for prayer timings in which users can perceive daily five prayer timings and how much time it is left for the next prayer. The third box is for your location which it finds automatically as it is written write below the center of ‘Ramadan Times’.
There’s more to this website than meets the eye. At the top of settings menu on right corner of main page, you will first spot the Calculation Methods button which is basically a manual way for users to set time according to global Islamic communities/regions. You can also choose between a Juristic Method you want to, have a Daylight Savings option and whether in which Time Format you want to see the timings.
