5 At Noon And In The Morning And The Evening #6

Regarding the definition of the words morning, noon and evening, at

which times the currently binding medium Obligatory Prayer is to be

recited, Baha'u'llah has stated that these coincide with sunrise, noon

and sunset (Q and A 83). He specifies that the allowable times for

Obligatory Prayers are from morning till noon, from noon till sunset, and

from sunset till two hours thereafter. Further, 'Abdu'l-Baha has stated

that the morning Obligatory Prayer may be said as early as dawn.

The definition of noon as the period from noon till sunset applies to

the recitation of the short Obligatory Prayer as well as the medium one.
