I live in India where the prayer time for `asr is so confusing. Some scholars say it starts 3:18pm and some scholars believe it starts at 4:30 pm. Which is the correct time and what makes it correct.

Thank you very much for your question. It is our pleasure to answer it.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Dear brother, you should follow your nearest mosque. However, if it’s more than 20 miles to your nearest mosque, then it might be better to get a timetable calculated for your location.

And Allah knows best.
