Iqama Times In Makkah & Madina

The Prophet  said: “The prayer in my masjid (Masjid An-Nabawi) is better than one thousand (1000) prayers in any other masjid with the exception of al-Masjid Al-Haraam, and a prayer in al-Masjid Al-Haraam is better than one hundred thousand (100,000) prayers.”

*There is an adhan that is given 45 to 60 minutes before Fajr enters everyday in Makkah.

*Please note that when the mosque clocks state the time for shuruq, what is meant is that the Fajr prayer time officially ends at this time. As for praying the voluntary shuruq prayer and duha prayer, one must wait until about 20 minutes after this time, such that the sun fully rises above the horizon, before offering any prayer.
