(Fatwa: 758=531/H)


It is obvious that the time of Maghrib Salah will start from sunset. Similarly, the time of Fajr Salah is before sunrise. Between these times you should offer Isha Salah there (in Finland). This is the fatwa of Ulama that though Isha time is not clear at such places but it must be performed. (Nizamul Fatwa, V 1, P 58, Islamic Fiqh Academy, Dlehi)
