I am considering becoming a follower of the Zaidi madhab, after researching for a while I believe it a balanced approach between the other two major schools (12er and Sunni).

However I would like to ask, how would we go by following prayer times in the UK? Would it be sufficient to follow a Jafri time table/calculation on a phone app to pray according to Maghrib etc.

Are there currently any Zaidi mosques or Imams in the UK who we can go to for fatwa/knowledge?

As a quick add-on to the brother's question above (as I'm in undergoing a similar process of consideration), could I just stick with the Hanafī prayer times I'm already comfortable with and have a firm grasp of the proofs for? And what does the Zaydī madhhab have to say about `Ishā' and Fajr in the lands where night doesn't fall during a certain period of the Summer?

Salaams!

Thank you for your questions! There isn't typically an issue with the prayer times other than Maghreb which Zaydis say enters at the appearance of a star.

As for Zaydi masaajid, there aren't any that I know of in the UK. Even in Yemen, Zaydis have no problems praying in predominately Sunni masaajid and there aren't Zaydi masaajid so to speak.

And Allah knows best!
