Telling Time In Urdu

Telling Date And Time In Urdu

The following chart shows typical usage of sentences in Urdu which relate to asking the time in different ways in any event. These sentences are used in asking time daily. Some of the familiar examples are given below in Urdu 

  • وقت کیا ہواہے؟ (Waqt Kiya hova hai?) –What is the time?
  • آپکی گھڑی پر کیا وقت ہوا  ہے؟ (Aapki ghari per kia waqt hova hai?) -What time is it on your watch?

Before moving further, here is an additional pattern of Urdu words used in telling or asking time: 

English WordsUrdu translationRomanized Urdu
One second ایک سیکنڈEk second 
One hourایک گھنٹہEk Ghanta 
One minute ایک منٹEk mint
One dayایک دنEk din
One monthایک مہینہEk maheena
One yearایک سال Ek saal


The word hour translates to (ghanta) in the Urdu language. As you know there are twelve numbers on the clock and without knowing their names in Urdu you will not be able to learn how to ask or tell time. If you are in the transport sector of Pakistan, then you must be aware of this word.

For learning time you should be familiar with the twelve-hour concept of am and pm.

In the Urdu language, the word se pehar (سہ پہر) is used for noon, subah(صبح) for the morning, and sham (شام) for the evening. They relate to the letters or patterns of a.m and p.m in Urdu or the day period times. 

For the term o’clock the word (bajy) is used. To understand this concept, one should practice this format with the numbers of Urdu like this:

  •   ایک بجے  (Ek bajy) -One o’clock
  •   دو بجے  (Dou bajy) -Two o’clock 

Some other examples of these words are:

فٹبال میچ اس اتوار دس بجے کھیلا جائے گا ۔ (Football match is itwar das bajy khaila jayega) -This Sunday, a football match will be played at 10 o’clock in the morning.


The next important element in telling time is the minute which is termed the same (منٹ) in Urdu. As we use these minutes as time references for accuracy, similarly in Urdu you have to be proficient in this. They are a little bit tricky and difficult but practice will make it easy for you. Here are some examples which will help you in understanding:

  • ایک بج کر اٹھایس منٹ ۔ (Aik baj kar athaees minute.) –One thirty-eight.
  • اس جمعہ کو دس بجے کر پچاس منٹ پر میٹنگ شروع ہوگی۔ (Is jumma ko das bajy kar pacha’s mint par meeting shuru hogi.) –The meeting will start at 10:50 this Friday

Concept Of Seconds 

The word second is pronounced the same in Urdu (سیکنڈ) so it’s not that difficult to understand this:

  • کچھ ہی سکعنڈ میں کلاس شروع ہو جائے گی ۔ (Kuch hi second mai class shuru hojayegi) -Class will be started soon in a few seconds.

Writing Time In Urdu

Some of the examples are given below which are used in reference to time and other Urdu phrases used in day period times:

  •  صبح ( subah) -Morning
  •   دوپہر (dopehar) -Noon
  •   سہ پہر (seeh pehar) -Afternoon 
  •    شام (Shaam) -Evening
  •   رات (Raat) -Night
  •  صبح سویرے (subahsawery) -Early Morning 
  •   آدھی رات (adhi Raat) -Midnight


Here are basic words and phrases in Urdu about how to tell the time in Urdu:
