High precision prayer time library

Build Status

Adhan is a well tested and well documented library for calculating Islamic prayer times. All astronomical calculations
are high precision equations directly from the book
“Astronomical Algorithms” by Jean Meeus. This book is recommended
by the Astronomical Applications Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory and the Earth System Research Laboratory
of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.


Adhan is available for the following languages:


This is an initial release of the library. The following items are planned:

  • Porting to additional languages
  • Comprehensive unit tests for various locations and settings
  • Full explanation of the equations used and prayer time calculation
  • Suggested method for a country/city
  • Convenience methods for determining current prayer/next prayer


Adhan is made publicly available to provide a well tested and well documented library for Islamic prayer times to all
developers. We accept feature contributions provided that they are properly documented and include the appropriate
unit tests. We are also looking for contributions in the form of unit tests of of prayer times for different
locations, we do ask that the source of the comparison values be properly documented.


Adhan is available under the MIT license. See the LICENSE file for more info.
