How many of us have coined the term ''when in Rome, do as the Romans do''...the meaning of this coined term is - that you should adapt to the customs of societies when you visit them, or behave in an appropriate manner according to how people around you behave. It is often shortened to "When in Rome". Often also meant as 'Going with the flow'
The phrase is so extensive, dont you think? If the customs of society is to delay salaah or worse still idolatry then what do we do?
For example...the general norm today is kids go clubbing, not all, but for the most part, they do so do we coin the term and just 'go with the flow'
Just because 'everyone is doing it don't make it right. Wrong is wrong and right is right!!!



*Wrong is Wrong*
even if everyone is doing it

*Right is Right*
even if no-one is doing it
