A BRITISH mosque has put together an informative schedule to help those observing Ramadan remember a very specific set of prayer times.
Muslims must fast in the day during Ramadan and so it is important they observe closely the hours of sunset and sunrise.

The East London Mosque, which is in Whitechapel, has formed a timetable with all the significant times Muslims in the capital must remember from the beginning of Ramadan on Thursday.
The schedule shows the prayer times for each day of Ramadan, which ends on June 15.
It highlights the time of sunrise, which is as early as 4.40am in the latter stages of the holy month.
Prayer times for other UK cities vary slightly as the prayer times themselves are dictated by the position of the sun.

How often do Muslims pray during Ramadan?
Muslims are encouraged to pray five times a day during the holy month in what is called salat.
These prayers remind Muslims of God and the many opportunities to seek guidance and forgiveness.
They also serve as a reminder of the connection that Muslims all over the world share through their faith and shared rituals.
The Fajr prayer is performed before sunrise. Dhuhr is observed shortly after noon to again remember God and seek his guidance.
In the late afternoon, Muslims observe the Asr prayer and then observe the Maghrib prayer just after the sun goes down. The Isha prayer is said just before bed.
