Ramadan Timetable


Can we rely on Ramadan timetables that are widespread among people for beginning and ending the fast?


Praise be to Allah

It is not permissible to rely on the timetables that are widespread among people unless two conditions are met

1. That the organisation that issues a timetable should be people of knowledge and experience.

2. That the time for beginning the fast should be specific to the town for which the timetable is issued.

It is not permissible for someone who is living far away from a town to rely on its timetable, because of the differences in timings between the two towns.

If someone does not have a timetable that he can rely on for the times of beginning and ending the fast, then he can check for himself the times of the true dawn and sunset by observing them himself, or he can follow a trustworthy mu’adhdhin who knows the proper times. If it is known that the mu’adhdhin only gives the adhaan at the time of the true dawn, then he must stop eating and drinking as soon as he hears his adhaan. If it is known that he gives the adhaan after sunset, then it is permissible for the fasting person to break the fast, and no attention should be paid to the adhaan of one who gives the adhaan some time before dawn or after sunset so as to be on the safe side.

And Allah knows best
