Prayer time Abu Dhabi: when is it?
Knowing the correct prayer time Abu Dhabi is essential for every practising Muslim in the United Arab Emirates. The five daily prayers called Salah are of exceptional value in Islam. Like many other religions, Islam has precise rules and rituals, and if you want to be really close to Allah in your prayers, you need to know how and when to pray.
The five daily prayers are among the Five Pillars of Islam. The other four include traveling to Mecca (called ‘Hajj’) at least once in one’s life, fasting during the holy month of Ramadan (called ‘Sawm’), knowing and sincerely reciting the Muslim profession of faith (called ‘Shahadah’), and helping the poor and donating to charities (called ‘Zakat’). Honouring the five pillars of Islam is the best way for a person to show how faithful he or she is. Praying is among the most visible evidence of this faithfulness.
Why does one need to know the exact prayer time Abu Dhabi?
The five daily prayers have their specific names. These names show when a particular prayer should take place.

The period assigned for Fajr lasts between dawn and the exact sunrise. The precise time varies as the length of the day and the moment the sun rises shift naturally within the year. In August (Dhu al-Qidah), the Fajr prayer time in UAE shifts between 4:22 am and 4:44 am.
You may be calculating the Salah schedule on your own based on the moment the sun rise. In this case, make sure you give yourself enough time to complete the prayer at least 10 to 15 minutes before the sun rises.
During the holy month of Ramadan, the call to Fajr symbolises preparation for daily fasting.
What is Abu Dhabi prayer time for Dhuhr?
Dhuhr, the ‘noon prayer’, is performed from the moment the sun declines from its zenith to the moment the length of shadows equates the actual length of things. As a rule, the break for this prayer is short because most people are at work. Since not everybody can visit a mosque to praise Allah at this moment of the day, it is possible to find a quiet corner at home, in an office, or elsewhere to perform this prayer. It is essential to face Mecca during communication with Allah.
Due to the natural rhythms and the movement of our planet around the sun, in August (Dhu al-Qidah), the time for Zuhr will come between 12:29 pm at the beginning of the month and 12:23 pm closer to the end of the month.
What is the Asr prayer time in Abu Dhabi?
There are different points of view concerning the right time for the Asr ‘afternoon’ prayer. Most Islamic schools say that Asr should be performed at the moment the length of shadows are twice as long as the objects that cast them. There is another opinion that it is not good to procrastinate (without an acceptable reason) until the sun becomes orange at the end of the day.
Asr prayer times UAE in August (Dhu al-Qidah) will vary from 3:55 pm at the beginning of the month and 3:52 pm closer to the end of the month.

What are the Maghrib Abu Dhabi prayer times?
The time period given to perform the ‘sundown’ prayer is very short. The period within which Maghrib should be performed is very small. You need to fit it between the moment the sun is wholly hidden underneath the horizon and the moment when the evening redness is completely gone from the sky.
The Maghrib prayer times Abu Dhabi in August (Dhu al-Qidah) will vary within the month between 7:07 pm at the beginning and 6:43 pm at the end of the month.
What is the UAE prayer time for Isha?
Isha is the latest part of Salah. The time given for its performance starts right after the completion of Maghrib and ends immediately before the beginning of Fajr. Generally speaking, it is the period after the complete vanishing of the evening glow from the sky. Islamic theologians recommend that Isha should be performed about an hour after the completion of Maghrib, but it is better to complete it before midnight if there are no strong reasons for a delay.
In Abu Dhabi, the time for Isha in August (Dhu al-Qidah) will differ from 8:14 pm to 8:37 pm at the beginning and end of the month, respectively.
