How to Set Your Prayer Times

To set up your prayer times to suit your needs

Go to the dashboard, then Settings

Click on Athan Times

Here, you can either choose automatic calculation ⁽¹⁾ or a Timetable file ⁽²⁾ to upload your edited XLSX or CSV models provided by Masjidbox

In the automatic calculation, you can change the Calculation method by choosing one of the available options or clicking on the personalized method.

In the Asr Prayer and according to your school, you can choose between Shafi and Hanafi.

For the High latitude rule, you can choose between Midnight, One Seventh, and Twilight Angle to set the minimum time for Fajr and the maximum time for Isha.

To adjust the time manually, click on Times adjustment (in minutes), then click on Submit.

You can also overwrite the time of each prayer by going to Overwrite Prayers Settings

Choose one of the Prayers & set the time you want by choosing between minimum, fixed, and maximum values, then click Submit.
For example:
- Minimum value: The time will never exceed the value. For example, if you set the time at 11:00 and the actual time is 12:00, it will stay at 12:00, but if it's 10:00, it will be overwritten to 11:00.
- Fixed value: The time will always be the same.
- Maximum value: The time will always be at most the value.

Now, if you want to upload your prayers timetable for a year, go to Settings⁽¹⁾, Athan times⁽²⁾, then choose the year⁽³⁾ and click on the download button⁽⁴⁾

Once you download the Excel file and adjust the Prayer times that suit your need, click Edit.

Go to Calculation method ⁽¹⁾, choose Timetable file⁽²⁾, upload your edited Excel file, then click on Upload the file⁽³⁾. Once the file is uploaded, click on save⁽⁴⁾
