Pearl of Wisdom

'One of his servants became sick so we went to visit him as a group of the servants of Ja'far. We met Ja'far (AS) on the way, and he asked, 'Where are you going?' We replied, 'We are going to so and so to visit him.' He said, 'Stop.', so we stopped, and he asked, 'Does any of you have an apple or a quince, or a citron, or some perfume or a piece of sandalwood?!' We said, 'No, we do no have any of these?' He said, 'Do you not know that the sick man is comforted by anything that is brought for him.?

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]

Subject: Time of mid-night
Question: How can we know the time of mid-night? Do 00.00 hours the point of mid-night as it is commonly held by some people?
Answer: Midnight is halfway between sunset and true dawn. So if the sun sets at 7 p.m. and the true dawn begins at 4 a.m., then midnight will be at 11:30 p.m.

The criteria for determining midnight are the timings of sunset and true dawn, which differ according to place and season.
