New improved salaah time tables?

It has come to my attention that some mosques and scholars have bandied together to investigate the current prayer times in the UK and decided that the current ones are wrong.

They have used their "new research" and come out with new salaah time tables.

The timetables have fajr time starting at 1am for this time of year. Which sounds odd to me (almost 4 hours of fajr time?).

Apart from releasing the new time tables which some mosques have adopted there does not seem to be any literature out there of the methodology they have used and how they got to the calculations they did.

Anyone know more?

In the Presence of the Divine: Establishing Connection in Salah

“Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the middle prayer, and stand before Allah in a devout (frame of mind).”

[Al-Baqarah: 238]

For many, it is a recurring struggle to fruitfully perform the Salah under mental seclusion from the confining world surrounding us, to turn to Allah in solitude under full submission, to seek His pleasure and intensify the one-to-one relationship with the All-Mighty. Based on the commended work of the renowned scholar, Imam Al-Ghazali’s “Minhajul Arifeen”, we will be enlightened with a unique dimension to enhance our spiritual connection with the Creator, a step-by-step approach starting from beyond the intention to perform the Salah to the supplication made after the tashahud and more.

BACK TO BASICS: How to Perform Salah

By: 
MuslimBro & Imaani Aslam

Islam is a complete way of life. It is based on five basic duties which are known as the five pillars of Islam. Salah is the second pillar of Islam and the most important of all acts of worship. The other three pillars are: Zakat, Sawm and Hajj.

Salah is prayer offered to Allah using specific words and actions as taught by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Allah says in the Quran: “Indeed I created Jinn and human beings for no other purpose but to worship me.” [51:56]

Some Questions and Answers on Salah

By: 
Shaykh Salim Ghisa

I pray but my mind wanders off to things like football, TV, work etc. So is there any point of praying then?

Prayer is judged based on action as this is what a person can control. Of course a person's mind should be focused on what they are doing especially when it is worship.

However, Allah is the most Merciful and is fully aware that Shaitaan will try and discourage you from praying and therefore he will use all types of distraction.

Therefore a person should stick to their actions as this means you are worshipping Allah even though your desires are telling you otherwise, and InshaAllah you will be rewarded for your patience.

Slowly, these distractions will start to go away and one will obtain satisfaction, so one must not give up.

Back to Basics: Salah

MuslimBro and Shaykh Salim Ghisa

In this first series of 'Back to Basics' we will cover the second pillar of Islam - Salah. Many of us read it without knowing the importance, the benefits and even the rulings of salah. So sit back and relax and increase your knowledge and understanding of salah.

Why pray?

The answer shouldn't be 'because my dad said so!' After believing in the shahada (declaration of faith), the most important worship and also a pillar of Islam is salah. The Prophet (pbuh) said, "The link between a Muslim and disbelief, kufr, is his or her neglect of prayer." [Muslim].
