Before Clock Exist, How Muslim Know Prayer Times ?

Prayer Time Before There Is a Clock ? The clock is something that is very important for our lives today. With the clock we can accurately regulate the activities in the daily.

The clock also benefits by show when the prayer time comes. But before the discovery of the clock as it is today,

how do I determine the praying time of the muslims before?

Muslims used the sundial found during the expansion into Greece in the seventh century AD to determine prayer times.

Muslims use the sundial to measure the distance and praying time.

The sundial is considered one of the oldest time-measuring machines because its history dates back to 3500 BC. This is a tool for determining the time with the shadow of an object.

Pillars of Islam and Iman (Faith)

in a day, a Muslim is obliged to Pray fardhu in 5 times:

1. Dhuhr

The time from the slipping of the sun to the shadow of all objects is as long as the original.

2. ‘Asr

The time from the moment the shadow of all objects is as long as the original until sunset.

3. Maghrib

The time from sunset to the loss of the reddish color at dusk.

According to the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Maghrib prayer times during the reddish color at dusk have not disappeared.”

4. ‘Isha

Time from the loss of twilight red to mid-night.

According to the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “The prayer time is ‘Isha’ until midnight.”

5. Shubuh

It’s time from dawn to sunrise.

Based on the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):

وَقْتُ صَلاَةِ الصُّبْحِ مِنْ طُلُوْعِ الْفَجْرِ مَالَمْ تَطْلُعِ الشَّمْسُ.

“The time of Fajr prayer from the rising of dawn until before sunrise.”
