Answer:

 


Start time of day

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. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 5:

5 It is He Who made the sun to be a shining glory and the moon to be a (reflected) light, and measured out stages for her that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth and righteousness. (Thus) doth He explain his Signs in detail for those who understand.

 

The count of time and days in Islam is not based on the mechanical 24 hours, but rather on the movement of the sun; thus the start of the count of a day in Islam would begin at the time of the setting of the sun, or magrib time.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
