Al Fajr Azan Clock (CW05)
Al Fajr is just about the best prayer Azan clock on the market in terms of manufacturing quality and design. Keeps prayer times for over 250 cities (preset) around the world, and if you know your longitude and latitude, you can customize it to alert you to the prayer times for your area. The complete azan for all prayers (including full Fajr azan that has "Assalatu Khayrun Min Annawm" ) can be played. The volume level can be easily adjusted by the dialer located at the back of the clock. The azan sound can also be switched to 3 beeps instead, or nothing at all (if you are traveling or simply do not want the alarm to produce any sound). Fajr and Isha times are calculated by either an angle of the sun below the horizon or by an interval of time. This clock is programmed to use the local taqweem method or the most widely used system for your city. However, if required, you can choose another taqween system for your city.
Choice of Azan times:
- Egypt altqweem Almasri
- Indian Sub-continent: Islamic Scientific University
- Saudi Arabia: Taqweem Um Al-Qurra
- Gulf Countries: Local Taqweems
- Rest of the Arab World: Follows Altaqweem Almasri
- North America: ISNA

Automatic Pre-prayer / Post-prayer time Alarm:
This unique feature allows you to wake up everyday exactly at the same time relative to a prayer time azan. For example, if you set the alarm to 1 hour before Fajr azan for tahajjud, then you will always get the alarm to ring and wake you up 1 hour before fajr and will keep up with the time change for Fajr to ensure that you always have 1 hour for your night prayers.
The daily alarm is just like any regular alarm that rings at the same time everyday. This alarm can be set not to ring on weekends or can be set on one of the following three options:
- Monday to Friday only.
- Monday to Saturday only.
- Everyday (default set).
**Note:if the weekend in your city is Thursday and Friday, then this alarm can ring from Saturday to Wednesday and Saturday to Thursday respectively.
After selecting any city, the Qibla direction (relative to the True North) wil be displayed for a while.
Calendar (Hijri & Gregorian):
The Hijri calendar in this clock is based on the astrological moon sighting calculations for Mecca.

The Hi Glo EL blue backlight can be activated by pressing the top button.
A high quality digital Azan sound for all prayers (including complete Fajr azan) can be played. With azan volume control fitted in all clock models.

Other standard taqweem systems are available, as follows:
Islamic World Organization (Muslim League):
Fajr azan time is calculated based on 18 degrees angle below the horizon before shrooq time. Isha azan time is calculated based on 17.5 degrees angle below the horizon after magrib azan.
This system is widely used in Europe and the Far East.
Taqweem Um Al-Qura :
Fajr azan time is calculated based on 19 degrees angle below the horizon before shrooq time. Isha azan time is a fixed one and a half hours after Magrib. This system is used in Saudi Arabia.
Altaqweem Almasri (Egypt)
Fajr azan time is calculated based on 19.5 degrees angle below the horizon before shrooq time. Isha azan time is calculated based on 17 degrees angle below the horizon after magrib azan.
This system is used in Africa and many Arab countries.
Islamic Scientific University (Hanafi) :
Fajr azan time is calculated based on 18 degrees angle below the horizon before shrooq time. Isha azan time is calculated based on 18 degrees angle below the horizon after magrib azan.
In Hanafi system, Asr Azan time occurs when the shade is twice as long as the object. In the common system Asr azan time is when the shade is of the same length as the object.
This system is mainly used in the Indian Sub-continent.
Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) :
Fajr azan time is calculated based on 15 degrees angle below the horizon before shrooq time. Isha azan time is calculated based on 15 degrees angle below the horizon after magrib azan.
