I didn't get a chance to go to afternoon prayer yesterday...my train was super late. However, I did talk to an Imam about things. It was really nice and he was super sweet. It was a nice day leading up to my birthday (today). Next time I go back, I will attend a prayer. If I couldn't make an afternoon prayer, do people usually meet for the evening prayer?

Yhe mosque is open for all five of the daily prayers.

Fajr- can be said at any time from first light until the sun breaks the horizon

Dhuhr-- is said at approximently mid day but not while the sun is directly overhead

Asr- is at approximently mid afternoon roughly halfway between Dhuhr and sunset

Maghreb-- is said as soon as the sun sets below the horizon, but before dark

Isha-- is just before bed time.

As these times vary day to day most Mosques will have a weekly schedule posted. Often online or as a handout.

Friday Jummah--roughly 30 minutes before Dhuhr is the only time an Imam is permitted to give a sermon and he has to finish before the Athan for Dhuhr is called.

This is what Dhuhr looks like:

Thanks, Woodrow. Like I said, my train was very late. Holiday schedule. >_< But, I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet with an Imam. He was very helpful and very nice.

I'll have to look at schedules the next time I go.

Looking at your location "Candy Kingdom" I am assuming that is Hershy, Pennsylvania. Penn has quite a few Muslims
