Esha in Helsinki


Answering a question regarding when should the ‘esha prayers be offered in Helsinki, Finland where there is no complete darkness between sunset and sunrise sayyidi wa sanadi Shaykh Mawlana Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) said,

‘The most practical thing to do in these areas is that one should divide the interval between the sunset and sunrise into two halves. Pray ‘esha just prior to the end of the first half and fajar after the commencement of second half.’
