Python library for computing adhan times

Project description is a Python 2.7 and 3+ library for computing adhan times.

It is a refactoring of the Python adhan calculator that will ensure:

  • PEP8 compliant code

  • A PyPI package

  • A simplified API that favors convention over configuration

  • A test suite

  • Presence on GitHub to encourage contribution


pip install adhan


from datetime import date

from adhan import adhan
from adhan.methods import ISNA, ASR_STANDARD

params = {}

adhan_times = adhan(,

adhan_times will be a dict containing datetime objects for the keys 'fajr',
'shuruq', 'zuhr', 'asr', 'maghrib', and 'isha'

Custom Parameter Dictionary

In case you want to define your own parameters, the parameters argument accepts dicts with the following keys

  • fajr_angle: The angle below sunrise to compute Fajr for

  • isha_angle: The angle below sunset to compute Isha for

  • asr_multiplier: The multiplier to use for Asr, such that the length of an object’s shadow is the multiplier * the object’s length + the length of the object’s shadow at midday

  • isha_delay: The floating point number of hours after Maghrib that Isha is
