The Salah/Salat(Or Prayers) timings keeps on changing according to Sunset and Sunrise time. Name of Five Salah/Salat are:
Fajr-It begins approximately one hour and twenty minutes before sunrise and ends about ten minutes before sunrise.,
Zuhar-Begins just after the sun has passed the meridian,
Asar-Begins when the length of the shadow of an object is equal to the object’s length plus the shadow’s length at noon. It ends about 10 minutes before sunset.,
Maghrib-Begins immediately after sunset and ends when complete darkness approaches. This makes Maghrib Prayers time very short.

There got to be a true religion! ... Of course it is ISLAM.
If you follow the teaching of the prophet than you are following what god had commanded you to do, and if you just come up with your own ways and understandings than don't you be blaming the religion but blame your selfe.
