    Another question regarding the prayers.

    Report bad ads?

    Today I have prayed but it is not 100% complete but only 99% complete the daily prayer. When I wanted to pray Afternoon, my Christian sister came, and then she created big problems for me, why? I have no idea and that really pissed me off and that made me to miss the prayer but few minutes or hours later, I have managed to recover the lost prayer. My question is, is this called negligent? Will my prayer still be accepted? And there is parts on the prayer where I mumble, and I don’t understand what I was and I’m afraid that I may say an insult to God or any messenger, and I preferred to say in English where I understand perfectly, but rest, I have said in Arabic where I know perfectly(e.g. Al Fatiha and the Chair) these two I know perfectly, and the problem is that I don’t know how to say in Arabic “The Throne” but I know only in English to say, will my prayer be accepted? Because the only thing I know is “Al Fatiha.” And when the thing in prayer asked me to say Al Fatiha then say any surah, I can say again Al Fatiha? And now, the prayer that I started to pray x5 a day, it started somehow to become as a habit to me, and I have made a program and that is, only when I have only free time then I can perform the daily prayers.

    If I do this, then there’s no problem? Because I have other things to do(e.g. studying for the simulation exam) which I have the first simulation on 13-3-2018 and it is math simulation and then at 14-3-2018 I think it starts the last part of simulation exam which is Romanian language, and the simulation exam starts somewhere in March, and I have a lot to learn many poems which I have lost it and many novels and things I have lost in past to recover it and I have also to learn too much math. The time is pressurizing me and I have no time, the time is running fast as the waterfall. Am I neglecting the prayer by doing this? Is this excuse acceptable? Because, after the simulation exam is finished, I can relax and perform the prayers again. Is there any Du’a so that I can make the prayer be as my habit and to perform it perfectly? Because, ai want to pray perfectly without stop and continue do the prayers till the end. Because, my intention is to pray perfectly as prophet Muhammad did this is my wish. Oh, and is this app from the middle also good app to start praying? because, I see that there is another prayer which it is included “My Lord, forgive me” and in this app I don’t find it. Is this another obligatory Islamic prayer? Or it is the same prayer as the Muslims use it to pray? So that I won’t be confused. Because, I want to learn from someone’s mistake, and here it is, thousands of years during the Era of Prophets and Messengers, a person asked Muhammad what is the fate of this person who died? And he(pbuh) said: “will go to Hell” and this person asked: “Why he goes to Hell? This person was a very good person and a believing person and performed the prayers.” And he(pbuh) said: “Because, he never used to say “God please forgive me” so in this conversation I want to learn from this person’s mistake. Is that true that on the last third of night known as “Isha” is the moment when God accepts any kind of Supplication no matter how long it is? Can you please tell me what are the best of the best volunteer prayers after the obligatory prayers?

    No that is a du'a that is recited between the two sujud (prostrations). It is sunnah but not obligatory according to the majority of scholars.


    It is proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) also used to say between the two prostrations: “Allaahumma ighfir li warhamni wajburni warfa‘ni wahdini wa ‘aafini warzuqni (O Allaah, forgive me, have mercy on me, console me, raise me in status, guide me, grant me well being and grant me provision).”


    At-Tirmidhi (284) narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) used to say between the two prostrations: “Allaahumma ighfir li warhamni wajburni wahdini warzuqni (O Allaah, forgive me, have mercy on me, console me, guide me, and grant me provision).”


    Abu Dawood (850) narrated it as follows: “Allaahumma ighfir li warhamni wa ‘aafini wahdini warzuqni(O Allaah, forgive me, have mercy on me, grant me well being, guide me and grant me provision).”


    Ibn Maajah (898) narrated it as follows: “Rabb ighfir li warhamni wajburni warzuqni warfa‘ni (O Lord, forgive me, have mercy on me, console me, grant me provision and raise me in status).

    It says in al-Mawsoo ‘ah al-Fiqhiyyah (4/40):

    When sitting between the two prostrations, it is Sunnah to pray for forgiveness, according to the Hanafis, Maalikis and Shaafa ‘is, and it is one opinion that was narrated from Ahmad. The basis that is to be found in the report narrated by Hudhayfah, according to which he prayed with the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and he used to say between the two prostrations: “Rabb ighfir li, Rabb ighfir li (Lord forgive me, Lord forgive me).”
    Another question regarding the prayers.

    وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّـهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
    ~ And who is better in speech than someone who calls to God, and acts with integrity, and says, “I am of those who submit”?

    Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah!
    I understood from this that you probably are a revert. So to give you a brief answer: prayers are a pillars of Islam (as you know), and nothing can be more important than it. We are all busy with dunya but in order to succeed in this life and in the next we have to pray. You see prayer as something that takes time away from your studying but it can actually be beneficial even for it. Ask Allah while in sujood to help you remember and succeed in whatever task you need to complete, it will make it easier for you! I understand that it is hard for you to pray on time because of your non muslim family! If you don't feel comfortable telling them openly for the moment, try to think about a solution and ask Allah to help you to pray on time! It will get easier in sha Allah! You only have to put a bit of effort and sincerity and Allah will help you in sha Allah. So pray every day, no matter if you have exams or work to do.

    You can read the part of Arabic that you still don't know cause it will be easy to memorize if you repeat for every prayer everyday, you won't even need to study! Don't worry about getting it wrong cause Allah knows what you want to say!

    Our beloved Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The one who is skilled in reciting Qur’an will be with the noble, honourable scribes and the one who recites Qur’an and falters therein, and finds it difficult, will have a double reward.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (4937) and Muslim (798).
    Also, about this, An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
    "The one who falters is the one who stumbles in his recitation because of his poor memorisation. He will have a double reward: the reward for reciting and the reward for faltering in his recitation and the difficulty he encounters."

    So do not worry. Make the prayer something you love, a conversation with your Creator!
    (The last third of the night is the one you talk about, yes, but it's the time before fajr! Only pray the voluntary prayers after you prayed all - or intend to pray - 5 times that day)

    In sha Allah khair, may Allah make it easy for you and for us and accept our prayers and grant us khushoo.

    So either if I use the telephone and I use the the app in the middle on the photo in order to start praying, is also accepted by God even though I know how to pray? And can you tell me what are the best of the best volunteer prayers? And after the last obligatory prayer I can make Du’a like this: “O Allah! O Al Wadud! O Ar-Rahman! O Al Malik!” and then start to ask God in Romanian language( my mother language) for whatever I need and at the end I say “please O Allah! I beg You by one of Your 99 names, please, grant me this because my intention is this and that, please O Allah! You are the richest and I’m poor, You are the Lord of the heavens and the earth.” is also good how I make Du’a to God? And if I don’t feel comfortable to pray in school where are a lot of Christians and some of them are crazy, they do a lot of jokes, when the school is over and we go home then I can make up for the lost prayers? Is that ok? Because, the reason I’m asking this is because there are some who likes make fun of others continually.

    What I did to learn was write down on a paper what I had to say, and then when I had to recite something I would read. In a short amount of time I learned it!! So don't worry! And for the du'a you can use your first language, maybe in sha Allah one day you will learn some by heart or learn Arabic and then you'll be able to say it in Arabic. But for now the du'as you make out if prayer can be in your language.
    As for the prayers, they have to be on time, no matter the environment. It can be hard and we all understand it but we can't lie! Prayer have to be done in their time. You can do one till the next comes (besides Isha cause some say you can perform it till the middle of the night) so maybe that can help you a bit! May Allah make it easy for you. Your efforts are being seen by Him.

    I ask forgiveness if I said something wrong, I'm still learning as we all have to do.

    Assalamu alaykum.

    One more thing. If for example a student will not pray for a whole week because he will have many things on his head like for example study for many kind of tests, then can this student say “O Allah! Please, don’t write into my book of deeds that I will not pray, because I will indeed pray start from the weekend to pray and even after weekend I will pray, please O Allah, You have my word that I will start praying” is this ok? Or this Du’a is definitely rejected? Please don’t get me wrong. Because, I suppose also when you make Du’a you need to have a good intention for it. Right?

    I am no one to say which du'as Allah accepts or not, but you can't avoid praying and expect for it not to be written as a sin. The prophet sallAllahu 3alayhi wassalam and the companions raddiAllahu 3anhoum used to fight in wars and still they found the time to pray, so we can't find excuses when all we do is go to school or work. I don't get you wrong nor I'm judging you, don't worry; asking questions it's always good!

    Re: Another question regarding the prayers.

    There is no excuse to abandon the prayer unless your are mentally insane then the pen is lifted and your deeds are not recorded. You could become paralyzed from the neck down and still you would have to make the prayer using your eyes for ruku and sujuud.

    So during the war prophet Muhammad still prayed? That really encouraged me to pray. But if some students in my class will see me that I’m praying, then I simply ignore them whatever they do to me? Because, I have experienced in my past horrible things and now I say 1 million times thanx to God that He opened for me many doors and now I maybe no longer experience again horrible things and so on, that they mocked me by making a video about me even if I ignore them and that I really hate that I’ve been posted on YouTube without my permission and lucky I have a best atheist friend who helped me by removing the video from YouTube and I did not even asked him to help me, and it happened without me to expect and now it is removed and all thanx to God who closed for me the doors of horror and opened for me the doors of peace. And I have learned from my past that sometimes I have to be bad with others in order to survive in bad situations. If I’m been filmed while I am praying, then at the end I can simply tell to the teacher? Or I should ignore it? Is there a strong Dua that will make others from my class become true Muslims in short time? Because, I wish I can pray in class the obligatory prayers with other students so that I won’t feel alone, of course I don’t feel alone because God is watching me but I need also others from my class to be Muslims so that we all can pray together.

    Alhamdulilah that things got better. Honestly I suggest you to not pray directly in front of them, but to ask teachers or the director of the school if you can have a space for it (maybe they can let you pray for the 5/10 minutes that it takes in the office of a teacher or in the secretary's office etc.)! Just make the effort to ask and you will be surprised by how Allah makes it easy for you. I don't know how school works in your country but if you have breaks between lessons you might be able to pray in those times (cause as I reminded you before, your prayer is on time till the start of the following one! with the exception of fajr - until the sunrise - and isha - until the middle of the night -. Some argue about maghreb too, but I imagine dhuhr and asr are the ones you might have to pray in school ), so you don't have to leave a class. You can also explain that you desire to have privacy because of the behavior of your classmates, cause it's wrong and teachers should prevent that from happening. May Allah protect you!

    I will see what I can do. And if for example I want to make wudu others will ask me what I’m doing in form of a joke, shall I answer? Because, I don’t want to be ashamed. And for course, I’m not ashamed that I have become a Muslim, but I don’t like others making jokes about me, treating bad without a reason. I hope there something that I can do wudu in private. And some teachers will come sometimes in class even during the break time to give us lessons and what I do while I’m praying? I can hurry up with praying? I can speed up while I’m praying? Because, they write in catalog absences and they will start thinking that I have become a slacker. Other teachers like my biology teacher who thinks that she is at the time of Communism, if she caught me that I entered after her then she’ll let me stand on door because I’m late, and there are also others who come after her and are put in front of door until she allows us to sit down. Will they treat me bad if I will inform them that I’m praying? Or that I want to pray? Do you think it happened like this in past because God wanted to try my patience? Or is this as kind of punishment that I did something wrong and now the punishment is lifted? And if for example, other of my colleges will see me that I go every time to a certain place, then they’ll ask me what I’m doing on that place? What should my reply be? My class takes 1h I think till the break time it is short.

    You have a lot of questions to which I can't answer cause it's things we don't know as human beings, so I am sorry about that. I don't know what will happen but I can suggest you to put your trust in Allah and make the first steps. Remember that everyday there are muslims out there that make du'a for the entire ummah, so they are making du'a for you too. Things will get easier with time in sha Allah. You need to find ways in order to make them work with the means you have. If you speak to your teachers in a respectful manner, making sure to explain that you are only asking to have your rights (obviously in some countries things are different, but generally people are allowed to practice their own faith, especially if they are doing nothing wrong to harm people) and that you don't want to cause problems to them, they will understand in sha Allah and help you. You can always ask someone if they can tell you what the teacher said during the break, or the teacher will repeat it in sha Allah. If it is a break the students are allowed to leave the class, so it is not to be expected of them to stay seated. It's not easy and trust me, I know it well, you have to get really creative sometimes to be able to get everything done. But you can do it! Don't stress over it.
    I understand you saying that you aren't ashamed, but I also understand that you aren't comfortable with speaking about it openly yet. And you don't have to, you can keep private certain things you do and places where you go to. Find one teacher that you think could be the easiest to talk to and start from that, in sha Allah they will help you.

    The last thing. Is that true that a Muslim can make a wish anytime even before the prayer? And if a Muslim has a wish to make but he does not know how to find the words exactly but he has something in mind but does not know how to explain it, will the Du’a still get answered just as this Muslim asked for even though this Muslim did not know how to explain it? Does the Du’a has to be made in a clear way? Or this is not necessary? And can you explain to me something?I found in Quran that God Says there will be people who will keeps wishing to have things in worldly life than in Hereafter and if they do then they’ll not get anything but to get punished. Does this verse means that a Muslim will get punished for a short period of time in Hereafter even though he wished to have many things than in Hereafter? Because, I forgot what I meant this verse. Because, that verse freaked me because I don’t want to get punished not even for a short time. And sometimes I don’t realize that I ask for many things to have.

    You could ask to be given the words to express what you want to ask, otherwise make a du'a saying explicitly that you don't know how to express what you desire but you are asking for it (since Allah knows what is in your heart, He will be able to know what you desire). I didn't 100% understood what you ask about the Hereafter, but it is true that a person could be punished for a while before being entered into Paradise. We don't even have certainty about the si ci of our hearts, so you should ask to be sincere, detached from the material things/illusions of this world and you should ask to be protected even just from seeing Hell or smelling it.
    Remember that balance it's always needed, Allah is the most severe in punishment but He also is the Most Merciful.

    The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshipping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’” [Tirmidhi]

    This is the last one. Is there a strong Du’a that I can use so that God will guide my family to Islam and to have better understandings? Because, today my crazy Christian grandmother asked me where do you put the icon of Jesus Christ? And as a lie I told I don’t know. And she tried to convince me to tell the truth and I did told, and then she asked me in front of my Christian sister, and I told her in Romanian “îngerii(angels) nu vor intra intr-un loc unde sunt imagini cu ființe” and she asked me who told you this? And I replayed: Muhammad told thousands of years ago that angels of mercy do not enter a house with images, and my crazy troublemaker Christian grandmother and my Christian sister considered me as a stupid, that I’m not correct in my head. Oh, and is there a Du’a to get rid of this strange, weird feeling that I have? Because, when I’m trying to speed about what I believe, I start to shake as if I’m shame and I try to keep saying to myself: “goddamn it! I’m sick of being shame of being Muslim, I am not ashamed, I have no reason to be shame of being Muslim. I wish I don’t want any longer this kind of weird feeling” and I start to beat up myself because of this feeling because it is not right. Is there any strong Du’a also for this? Because, I want to get rid of this strange feeling once and for all. Have I committed a sin? Because, it is not my fault that I have this weird feeling, it is devil’s fault. And plus, I’m trying to practice Islam as other Muslims do. And my Christian grandmother told me after I told her that Jesus is not god, I don’t believe that Jesus is god. And she told me that if you have mind of pagan.... and she also told that my Muslim father prays to I don’t know what gods. And my sister said to her: “please, also Muslims do pray to the same God as Christians do”And that disturbed me a lot because it is not true, because my father would never pray to another god but to Allah, and I also pray to only one true God, The Creator. It seems like I have to keep the picture that I have with me as a memory of when I was baby with force so that they would not consider me as someone who don’t think well. I don’t know if the angels of mercy would enter in my room in my situation. And Maghreb came, and my Christian mother came home and the Math Christian teacher came to teach me math, and she came to my sister first. And my mother asked me to do the homie work because there’s no time, and ai shared with her a true story that you shared with me, and that is, thousands of years ago, Muhammad and others during their battles have found time to pray and that encouraged me to pray in aIl the time and I said to her that prayers are the most important and nothing is important like prayers, and she told me: “Yes, but that time was different situation but now the teacher is here and you must be prepared because you don’t know when she’ll come to you and you can recover it when she finished teaching you math” then I felt like she is right and when I went in my room, I said to myself: “no, why should I listen to someone who wants me not to pray? I won’t listen to her, I wanna make God be happy at me” and then I ask God To grant me some time to finish my prayer fast and it happened. And my Christian mother sat beside me helping me to solve my math homework, and I said: “Mom, I did not make up rules, this was told by angel Gabriel that angels don’t enter a house where there’s pictures” because she was angry with me and I know the reason. And she told me: “Stupid kid(out of anger), that is because you don’t understand what others try to tell you and that is because you stay a lot on telephone than reading, and what he(angel Gabriel) meant is they don’t enter a holy place where there are pictures and they are worshiped, do you think long time ago they had pictures as today?” And I said: “well, uhh, no they had portraits and statues that time” and she said: “exactly: he meant that it is haram only to take an image as something for worship but if you do not worship that image, then it is ok to have it, parents do love their children and that’s why they keep photos with they children as memory, tomorrow I’m gonna take the telephone from you, because you are not correct in head” it seems that I’m forced to keep it.

    Another question regarding the prayers.

    Today I have discovered that it is haram to pray on chair, and now when I want to see if I have any problem with bowing as in masjid, then I started to feel humiliation and shame again, is this normal to have this feeling? Because, usually I do praying on chair by standing up and then bow down by putting your head down on chair because I have done backbone surgery. So my question is, my prayers have been accepted even if I did not know but still prayed? And If I have done backbone surgery and still I’m in recovery, then I can pray on chair if I want to? What kind of illness does not allow you to make ruku or prostration but to pray on chair? Can you give me few examples? Because, I don’t understand, I have found that if you cannot because if illness and so on then you can sit and pray. Can you give few examples what kind of illness does not allow you do pray without a chair? And I can do prayers in private if I want to? Because, I feel comfortable when I pray alone in room and I feel disturbed when someone enters my room while praying. Because, I want to pray to God in private.

    Re: Another question regarding the prayers.

    Please brother, try to ask in the forum if a muslim brother can help you with these daily questions you have and help you get to know more about Islam. We are talking back and forth and I do not think this is right, even if I understand your need for answers. In sha Allah someone will get in contact with you in order to help you day by day.
    Remember to respect your parents and be nice to them. If you aren't able to bend your back or shouldn't in order to recover, then yes, you can pray in a way that it's easier for you.
    My parents are muslims too, so if there was a powerful du'a, I would want to know as well.
    May Allah make it easy for you and guide your family.
    Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

    Re: Another question regarding the prayers.

    Praying in the chair is not haram. Allah says in the Quran to stand for prayer. But if there are circumstances that makes it hard to do so, such as an injury, then it's acceptable to do what makes it possible for one to do their prayers. You will see chairs in the masjid all the time for the elderly who can't do all the positions completely. You can pray alone in your room if you want, prayer however is not something private. Best place for women is in her room where she can have the most privacy and best place for a man is in the masjid with the community.

    As revert mentioned, it's best you reach out to your local masjid and ask if you can come in and talk to an imam about all these questions you have and also if can find a bro who wouldn't mind being a mentor and go to person for your questions and concerns.
