Imsak and Fajr Time

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalam Alaikum Mufti Sahab,

For my area the Ramadhan calendar indicates “IMSAK FAJR” as 5.15 am and the Fajr Jamat is at 5.30 am. Should I stop eating/drinking at “IMSAK” time or 10-15 minutes before IMSAK i.e around 5 am?

Jazakallah Khairan.

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

Because the timings given in calendars are not definitive but are only approximate, it is advisable to stop eating 10-15 minutes before the end of “sehri” times printed on the calendar.
