Imsakiyah 2022

Imsak means staying away from food, drink. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) clarifies in the Glorious Qur'an the starting time of fast which is the break of dawn, saying: ...and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night), then complete your Saum (fast) till the nightfall. The Adhan for Prayer is a proclamation of the break of dawn. Therefore, you have to stop eating and drinking when you hear it.
