is it acceptable to pray esha at 7.45 and if this is wrong what are the amends we can make to recitify that error.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

The time of Isha starts when the whiteness in the sky has disappeared.  The scholars have calculated the timings of salat and created a yearly time tables.  The time tables usually state the beginning of each salat time.  One should follow these time tables for the salat times.

 

Towards the end of November the time of Maghrib salat was around 6:42 p.m., Isha salat in those days was around 8:12 p.m.  If you have performed your salat at 7:45 p.m. it will not be valid.  Those salats will have to be made up.  It would be best to obtain a copy of the time table from the local masjid for your convenience.

And Allah knows best
