Adhan Swift is a well tested and well documented library for calculating Islamic prayer times. Adhan Swift supports Swift 4.0, Swift 4.2, Swift 5.0 and Objective-C.

All astronomical calculations are high precision equations directly from the book “Astronomical Algorithms” by Jean Meeus. This book is recommended by the Astronomical Applications Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory and the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Implementations of Adhan in other languages can be found in the parent repo Adhan.

Installation

CocoaPods

For CocoaPods add the following to your Podfile:

pod 'Adhan'

Carthage

For Carthage add the following to your Cartfile:

github "batoulapps/adhan-swift" "master"

Swift Package Manager

For SPM add the following to your Package.swift file:

// swift-tools-version:4.2
dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/batoulapps/adhan-swift", .branch("master")),
]

Manually

You can also manually add Adhan.

  • Download the source.
  • Add Adhan.xcodeproj as a subproject in your app's project.
  • Drag Adhan.framework to "Linked Frameworks and Libraries" in your app's target.

Usage

To get prayer times initialize the PrayerTimes struct passing in coordinates, date, and calculation parameters.

let prayers = PrayerTimes(coordinates: coordinates, date: date, calculationParameters: params)

Initialization parameters

Coordinates

Create a Coordinates struct with the latitude and longitude for the location you want prayer times for.

let coordinates = Coordinates(latitude: 35.78056, longitude: -78.6389)

Date

To avoid confusion with timezones the date parameter passed in should be an instance of DateComponents. The year, month, and day components need to be populated. All other components will be ignored. The year, month and day values should be for the local date that you want prayer times for. These date components are expected to be for the Gregorian calendar.

let cal = Calendar(identifier: Calendar.Identifier.gregorian)
let date = cal.dateComponents([.year, .month, .day], from: Date())

Calculation parameters & Calculation Methods

The rest of the needed information is contained within the CalculationParameters struct.

Calculation Parameters & Methods Guide

Prayer Times

Once the PrayerTimes struct has been initialized it will contain members for all five prayer times and the time for sunrise. The prayer times will be instances of NSDate and as such will refer to a fixed point in universal time. To display these times for the local timezone you will need to create a date formatter and set the appropriate timezone.

let formatter = DateFormatter()
formatter.timeStyle = .medium
formatter.timeZone = TimeZone(identifier: "America/New_York")!

print("fajr \(formatter.string(from: prayers.fajr))")

Full Example

let cal = Calendar(identifier: Calendar.Identifier.gregorian)
let date = cal.dateComponents([.year, .month, .day], from: Date())
let coordinates = Coordinates(latitude: 35.78056, longitude: -78.6389)
var params = CalculationMethod.moonsightingCommittee.params
params.madhab = .hanafi
if let prayers = PrayerTimes(coordinates: coordinates, date: date, calculationParameters: params) {
    let formatter = DateFormatter()
    formatter.timeStyle = .medium
    formatter.timeZone = TimeZone(identifier: "America/New_York")!

    print("fajr \(formatter.string(from: prayers.fajr))")
    print("sunrise \(formatter.string(from: prayers.sunrise))")
    print("dhuhr \(formatter.string(from: prayers.dhuhr))")
    print("asr \(formatter.string(from: prayers.asr))")
    print("maghrib \(formatter.string(from: prayers.maghrib))")
    print("isha \(formatter.string(from: prayers.isha))")
}

Convenience Utilities

The PrayerTimes struct has functions for getting the current prayer and the next prayer. You can also get the time for a specified prayer, making it easier to dynamically show countdowns until the next prayer.

let prayerTimes = PrayerTimes(coordinates: coordinates, date: date, calculationParameters: params)

let current = prayerTimes.currentPrayer()
let next = prayerTimes.nextPrayer()
let countdown = prayerTimes.time(for: next)

Sunnah Times

The Adhan library can also calulate Sunnah times. Given an instance of PrayerTimes, you can get a SunnahTimes struct with the times for Qiyam.

if let sunnahTimes = SunnahTimes(from: todayPrayers) {
	print(dateFormatter.string(from: sunnahTimes.lastThirdOfTheNight)
	print(dateFormatter.string(from: sunnahTimes.middleOfTheNight)
}

Qibla Direction

Get the direction, in degrees from North, of the Qibla from a given set of coordinates.

let nyc = Coordinates(latitude: 40.7128, longitude: -74.0059)
let qiblaDirection = Qibla(coordinates: nyc).direction

Contributing

Adhan is made publicly available to provide a well tested and well documented library for Islamic prayer times to all developers. We accept feature contributions provided that they are properly documented and include the appropriate unit tests. We are also looking for contributions in the form of unit tests of of prayer times for different locations, we do ask that the source of the comparison values be properly documented.
