Aside from the 5 daily prayers for witch you always have to face Mecca, can you face Jerusalem for your other prayers, is it halal? Do even prayers for which you have to face Jerusalem even exist. And while we're on the topic, are there prayers where you don't have to face Mecca? This may sound stupid to some people, but hey, curiosity isn't a bad thing... most of the time.
A part form making speeches, did Erdogan really do something against America and Israel up till now after Jerusalem has been recognized as a capital of Israel by America?. Israel still has it's embassy in Turkey's capital Ankara.
Assalamualaikum, I will be traveling to the Middle East in a couple weeks in shaa Allah, and I have a bunch of questions regarding prayer. Keep in mind I am a relatively new convert, so please be patient with me. 1) I read that all prayers during travel are 2 rakat. What counts as "travel"? I will be traveling for around 14 days, going in between cities, staying a couple nights in each and going around either to nearby cities or exploring the city I am staying in each day. Is "travel" simply the plane rides and bus rides, or the whole trip, since I am not staying in the same place the whole time? 2) Part of my trip will be in Jerusalem, and I plan to pray at Al Aqsa in shaa Allah. I was warned by a Palestinian friend of mine, however, that it is very dangerous if I pray like a Shia there and I should do taqiyyah and perform my prayers like a Sunni. Given recent events, it is even more dangerous to be praying noticeable differently at Al Aqsa, as people might suspect me to be a Zionist actor and become violent. Do I have to make up prayers later that are performed in taqiyyah? 3) Just in general, what are the rulings on praying salat at a Sunni mosque with Sunnis? The nearest Shia mosque to me is 3 hours away, and I cannot drive. The nearest Sunni mosque is 15 minutes by bus. If I prayed Jummah there, would I follow the imam or do it the way we do it? Would I stand in line with all of the others, or just quietly do my own thing in the back? Background note, I am a woman, so since congregational Jummah prayers are not obligatory upon me, I have not been going to the mosque. 4) If I am in a situation where I am unable to find pure water or dust for wudu, should I pray anyway, or would they not count? Is impure water better than nothing? 5) What's up with sutrahs? Do we use those anymore, or does a prayer rug essentially outline the space necessary for salah? JazakAllah khair and thank you for your patience with me.
Nasheed by Hizbullah on International Quds Day In August 1979, late founder of the Islamic Republic Grand Ayatollah Rohollah Khomeini declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day, and called on Muslims and people across the world to mark the annual occasion by holding street rallies. Millions of people around the world pour into the streets on this day in a show of support for the people of Palestine, and to call for an end to Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.
