الحمدللہ عزوجلDawat-e-Islami, the global non-political movement for the propagation of Quran and Sunnaĥ, is determined to serve Islam worldwide through more than 85 of its departments. One of these departments is ‘Majlis-e-Tauqeet’ that has been serving the Muslims of the entire world regarding timings of Salah & Fast, and the direction of Qiblah for the past two years in the light of the matchless research conducted by the great scholar Imam Ahl-e-Sunnat Imam Ahmed Rada Khan رحمتہ اللہ تعالٰی علیہ
It refers to that branch of knowledge through which the timings of five Salahs, sunrise, sunset, Nisf-un-Nahar, Misl-e-Awwal and Sani, and the direction of Qiblah for any location of the world can be determined using formulae.
A’lā Ḥaḍrat, Imām-e-Aĥl-e-Sunnat, ‘Allāmaĥ Maulānā Al-Ḥāj, Al-Qārī, Ash-Shāĥ Imām Aḥmad Razā Khā رحمتہ اللہ تعالٰی علیہ has referred to the importance of this discipline in one of his letters as: ‘Allāmaĥ ibn Hajr Makki رحمتہ اللہ تعالٰی علیہ has mentioned it as Fard Kifaya in Zawajir.
(Makātib Malik al-‘Ulamā Qalmī, Ḥayāt Malik al-‘Ulamā, pp. 8)
The science of Astronomy and Tauqeet (Timekeeping) are extremely useful and are vital for the Muslims, especially for the Islamic scholars. But, unfortunately, these sciences have been ignored largely. The scholars of these very sciences were mentioned as اُوۡلُوا الۡاَلۡبَاب’ (i.e. wise people) by Allah الحمدللہ عزوجل
Undoubtedly in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day are signs for the intelligent. Those who remember Allah while standing, and sitting, and reclining on their sides, and ponder about the creation of the heavens and the earth; “O our Rab! You have not created this without purpose.
[Kanz-ul-Īmān (Translation of Quran)] (Part 4, Sūraĥ al-‘Imrān, Verse 190-191)
Whether it be the issue of the validity of Salah or that of the Fasts, the related rulings are dependent upon the science of Tauqeet. Determining the correct timings of Salah & Fast, and the correct direction of Qiblah are not possible without the knowledge of Tauqeet. Although one can determine the direction of Qiblah from the building of a Masjid, but obviously the knowledge of Tauqeet is still required for constructing the Masjid in correct direction of Qiblah.
Seven persons came to A’lā Ḥaḍrat رحمتہ اللہ تعالٰی علیہin order to learn this science. Three of them passed away before the completion of this course and three contented themselves up to learning the necessary contents only, whereas only one i.e. Malik-ul-Ulama, Mufti Zafarudeen Bihari رحمتہ اللہ تعالٰی علیہ learned this science up to perfection. (Anwar-e-Raza pp. 709). Hence, having realised the importance of this religious science, Dawat-e-Islami, a global non-political movement for the propagation of Quran and Sunnaĥ, has established one specific Majlis (department), with the objective to not only produce correct timetables of Salah and Fast of various locations using this science but also to promote learning of this great science, bearing the Madani intention: I must strive to reform myself and the people of the entire world. Therefore this subject is being taught in the classes of ‘Takhasus fil Fiqh’ since 1427 AH (2006).
الحمدللہ عزوجل So far, Majlis-e-Tauqeet has not only developed the timetables of Salah of countless cities according to the principles of Tauqeet but has also developed a software, namely ‘Auqat-e-Salat’ in collaboration with IT Majlis of Dawat-e-Islami, the global non-political movement for the propagation of the Holy Quran and Sunnah. This software is very useful in finding out the correct timings of Salah on computers and mobile phones. By the help of its computer desktop application, correct timings of Salah and direction of Qiblah for 2700,000 different locations of the world can be determined easily and those of 10,000 locations can be determined by its mobile application.
For communicating any issue or suggestion regarding Salah Timetable, one may contact the members or concerned persons of the Majlis at the Alami Madani Markaz via phone, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Skype (Skype ID: majlis.toqeet). One may also contact in person during office hours of Tauqeet Maktab.
