Q. Does the time of Iftaar only commence after the completion of Azaan? I have been to some Masaajid in which Iftaar only commences after the completion of Azaan?

(Question published as received)
A. The end of a fast (Iftaar) is at sunset time. (Kifaayatul Mufti 4/249)
Accordingly, a fasting person should end his fast at sunset which is generally the time that Azaan commences and should not delay it until the completion of the Azaan. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said:
“The people will remain on the right path as long as they hasten in breaking the fast.” (Bukhari)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
