Assalamu 'alaykum dear brothers and sisters,

Is there a Zaydi position on the issue of when to determine fajr in the northern extremes where the sun does not descend to 18-degrees below the horizon during summer?

Different Sunni scholars have given different answers - some use fifteen degrees, some divide the night into parts, some say use the last time the sun did validly descend to 18 degrees below. I would like to follow the Zaydi position to the best of my ability.

With kind regards
wasalam fi iman Allah

Salaams!

I inquired about this issue to one of the Zaydi muftis. He replied that he didn't now of any Zaydi position on this issue. That withstanding, I would side with whatever the Hanafi position is on this.

And Allah knows best!
