Ramadan Timings! :D

What is everyone’s schedule like in Ramadan? I have to work from 10 to 4, which means I’ll be able to get a good amount of sleep after Sehri. Of course, I’ll be having most of my iftaaris at work, but that’s an entirely different issue altogether – is everyone else happy with their Ramadan schedules?

    Does anyone have a complete list of Sehri & Iftar timings for the full month of Ramazan, for Karachi ? I cannot seem to find it anywhere !!!

    Had to leave @ 7 am this morning, the only thing that is keeping me going is the thought that hopefully i’ll be in bed by 2:15 and that in the morning, i can get my speed kicks cuz therez hardly anyone on the road.

  10. Imtiaz (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 9:26 am

    about speed kicks….
    i had to face more traffic jams than i usually do!!!
    as i was joining sh-faisal from rashid minhas….i was shocked to see a traffic jam more than half a km long……so i pulled a u turn, shuttled through dalmia!!!

    not fair……and i had to drive slow!!!

    Don’t complain about traffic problems to a Dubai guy! I had to drive for 3 hours to get to my office because of traffic! GRRRRRRRRR! A colleague lives in Sharjah, and she drove for 4 hours to get to office.

    Btw, our office timing is 8am to 3pm, but only for Muslim staff. Non Muslim staff are on regular timings.

  12. Zag (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 1:18 pm

    You got half km long traffic jam @ 7 in the morning???

  13. tanzilla (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 2:05 pm

    mine are 8 a.m. till 4 p.m., wouldn’t complain this time bcz at least 4 means 4. unlike the last organiztion where 2:30 p.m. actually meant 9:30 p.m.
    a happy ramdan to every body….

  14. Tariq (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 2:29 pm

    Timings for my office are 7.30 am to 2.00 pm, and it’s great to look forward to being at home by 2.30 and just rest till iftar!

  15. Zag (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 2:49 pm

    Tariq: Hmmm… sounds similar…. hope we aren’t in the same org :)

  16. Imtiaz (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 3:17 pm

    yes….lucky for me when my car stopped, i was right next to one of those turns on the rashid minhas road, u know the one near the COD school thing??? yeah…that one…so i pulled a u turn and headed for dalmia…..

    lol…..didnt know the guy was dxb based…but when in dxb did they start having different timings based on workers religion??? or is it just your company…


  17. Imtiaz (unregistered) on October 6th, 2005 @ 3:18 pm

    @ tanzila….

    what makes u so sure that 4 means 4….??


  18. Erum (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 7:06 am

    well .. you all can consider yourself lucky after knowing my timings.. from 7am – 5pm or so.. and that too with everyone eating all kinds of stuff around here..
    of course im not in Pak.. so you all can feel better now :0)

    I must say .. Karachi is the best!!!

    Enjoy your rozas .. trust me the traffic jam is worth it .. you’ll miss it once you’re no more in khi (if ever that happens)

  19. Zag (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 10:29 am

    Erum: “you’ll miss it once you’re no more in khi… ” I know what you mean, stay abroad and u really understand the true meaning of home. I never liked the ramazan abroad and always tried to come back even if it was for 2 weeks..

  20. mohummed (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 11:21 am

    As i am a business student & I have to run my dad’s business , ramadan timings make no change in my routine but I have to go to factory thrice!
    First after Fajr , secondly after college, in afternoon & thirdly after Isha. I feel more energetic in Ramadans.

  21. Erum (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 2:10 pm

    ZAG .. Yes you’re right .. having ramazan abroad is not at all like ramazan at home! I never knew i could miss home so much till this month came :)
    and yes .. I will be there very soon Inshallah .. to finish up all the aftari in town ;)

  22. Erum (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 2:14 pm

    Mohammed, how do you feel more energetic in Ramazan? please let me know .. im totally out of energy already!

  23. tanzila (unregistered) on October 7th, 2005 @ 4:15 pm

    Imtiaz! Thank goodness 4 p.m. means 4 p.m. :)
    Erum: no wonder your exhausted…thtas way too long…ur office doesnt make any concessions for the muslim employees? Would u even get a day off on Eid?

  24. Imtiaz (unregistered) on October 9th, 2005 @ 4:02 pm

    Erum…thats wayyy too long!!!!

    but heres the case….its Ramadan 4…and i havent managed to have a single iftaari at home!!!

    so sad!!!

  25. kamran (unregistered) on October 26th, 2005 @ 7:23 pm

    Ramadan is all the same where ever u r. i enjoyed ramadan more in uk than in khi. we have the same qaba direction, same 5 times prays so what makes u feel its different abroad. do fasting for God, and not for iftari and all. cheers.

  26. Teymour (unregistered) on October 28th, 2005 @ 2:46 am

    Not to sound insensitive or anything but why is it that people have to go home to break their fasts? We have lunches and breakfasts in our offices so why not iftar? for one thing peole can avoid the horrible traffic jams they have to go through every day.

    Or is it one of those things which are to be taken without any questioning or you will be declared a kafir? much to the same effect of the ‘rule’ written in stone that one must always go to a funeral wearing shalwar kameez and not jeans and a shirt!

  27. Teymour (unregistered) on October 28th, 2005 @ 2:48 am

    Also i don’t understand the logic behind having a shorter workday just because its ramadan.

  28. Shabbir (unregistered) on October 29th, 2005 @ 9:07 am

    You can find full schedulle for Ramdan at http://www.islamicfinder.com

    I know it late but I today saw this website. My timings are from 7 PM to 4 AM but that 4 Am mean 7 Am. but I enjoy working as I get paid for it
