Question:1)when is the right time for closing fast....is it 13 min before fajr or at fajr?
2)can the fast be opened right after praying Maghrib salah with water.....then continue with Ishaa namaz?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You should use precaution and stop eating a few minutes before fajr.

Customarily you end the fast at the adhan of Maghrib then make salat al maghib and isha

Rule 1559 from Ayatollah Sayed Sistani says it is better to wait a little bit after Maghrib has set in as a means of precaution.
Question:My question is i have a fear of namaz all the time but i am mostly missing my namaz and sometimes delay in praying it until the last moment. please advise why is it. whereas i always have the fear in my heart that as i am missing the most important aspect of Salah. how to solve this moulana. Also sometimes my job work and my housework, delays and tires me off which also is the reason at times for the delay but i dont want that as an excuse and want to be very keen at performing my salah.

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Try to make your prayers at the earliest time possible so that you do not get tired and delay them. You can set alarm to remind you of the prayer times and also they have apps on the phones for this. Always keep your salat first and schedule your other things around the salat and not the opposite of trying to fit your salat into your schedule. I hope this will help you inshallah.
