Predictions are usually based on astronomical data on the Sun and the Moon for the Canberra region. Al Koran [55:5] "The sun and the moon follow precise courses"
The Islamic calendar consists of twelve lunar months. Each month may be of 29 or 30 days depending on the sighting of the new moon. A lunar year has, on average, 355 days. The reason in the variances is that the lunar year is 10 days less than the solar year. Hence an Islamic (lunar) year is moved forward 10 days in each solar calendar year. Holidays such as Ramadan, Eid ul-Fitr, Eid ul-Adha, Ashura and Mawlud Nabi are dependent on the Islamic lunar calendar and vary from year to year and subject to confirmation by relevant authorities in each state.
These Prayer Timetables have been produced due to continuous difficulties faced in obtaining the local Prayer Timetable. I have spent my own time and and efforts (not to mention Web Hosting costs) in creating these Timetables and in no way do I claim that these Timetables are perfect. I do not take any responsibility regarding the accuracy of these Timetables and as such they should only be used as a guide. My only hope is that some soul will find these Timetables helpful! May god forgive us for our mistakes and may god bless you all! Your emailed comments are appreciated, including any corrections to unintentional mistakes.
