Chapter 40

باب وقت المغرب والعشاء

The time of maghrib and `isha


قال الصادق (عليه السلام): إذا غابت الشمس فقد (حل الإفطار و)  وجبت الصلاة .


as-Sadiq عليه السلام said: When the sun has disappeared then the iftar (breaking the fast) has become allowed and the salat has become obligatory.


ووقت المغرب أضيق الأوقات، وهو (من حين غيبوبة الشمس إلى غيبوبة الشفق ، ووقت العشاء من غيبوبة الشفق إلى ثلث الليل .


And the time of maghrib is the narrowest of the times.  And it is from the disappearance of the sun until the disappearance of the twilight (ash-shafaq, the redness of the western sky).  And the time of `isha is from the disappearance of the shafaq until the third of the night.
