Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

Time for maghrib remains untill the whitness remains on the horizon. I.e before complete darkness sets in. The amount of time will vary from season to season and geographical locations. In South Africa it is approximately 80 min.
