Following two ramadan timetables

Answered by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by Molana Eunus Ali   Question: Asalamualaikum. Hazrat, I am looking permission, or if it’s lawful to follow two different Hanafi timetables this Ramadan. I take the full month off work in this blessed month to ensure, I am giving myself the best chance to secure my Akirah. Initially, I will be following the timetable where the sehri time is approximately between 1-1:30am depending on where you are. The reason for this is because right after Taraweeh finishes which, will be between  mid-night-12:15am, I can have a small snack in readiness for sehri, perform Tahajud, perform Fajar with Jamat (mosque), and then go straight to bed. I’d rather not go to sleep, and then wake back up to do sehri, Tahajud, and Fajar – too lazy! However, in the last 10 days, that are the greatest, this means there is less time for ibadah especially on the night of Laylatul Qadr. So, to make more time for myself, I then would like to change to another Hanafi timetable where sehri would be a between 2-3am. I would not go to sleep after Taraweeh, and get stuck in ibadah. I understand quality is better than quantity, but I would to accommodate for both. This is the month to be selfish, right? So, I’d have almost 3 hours instead of 1 hour, and 15 minutes. Questions: a)      Is this permissible? b)      If, I did so anyway, would my fasts, and ibadah still be valid? Jazak’Allah. Answer: … read more »
