Preparation for prayer
However if a person has had a wet dream or sex then they should perform Ghusl instead of whudhu.
Ghusl should also be performed at the end of a women period of menstruation has ended and at the end of 40 days after childbirth (unless the bleeding stops before completing the 40 days period, then she must make the Ghusl as soon as the bleeding stops).
Prayer timings vary throughout the globe and slight variations from day to day due to changes in daylight hours.
There are five obligatory prayers which are performed at five different times of the day.
1 FAJR PRAYER (The Morning Prayer)

It starts when the sun begins to decline from its zenith and ends when the the size of an object's shadow is equal to the objects size.
3 ASR PRAYER (The Late Prayer )

It is better to pray Asr before the sky becomes
yellow (even though it is allowed to pray at such a time) because the
Prophet ( peace be upon him) disliked Muslims praying at such as
time and. He remarked that the the Munafiq (Hypocrite ) offers his
pray at this time.
