No time / No place to pray your obligatory prayers? THINK AGAIN!
Do Not lose your KEY to PARADISE in pursuit of worldly gain & enjoyment!
•► PRAY 5 times on time…no matter what, no matter where !!
“The (whole) earth has been made good for me, a means of purification and a musallah (or place of prayer); so wherever a man may be when the time for prayer comes, let him pray wherever he is.” (Hadeeth narrated by saheeh Muslim, no. 521)
The entire earth is a suitable place to prostrate oneself; the scholars have made no exceptions except very few, such as graveyards and lavatories. Wherever a Muslim is when the time for prayer comes, he should pray: in a Masjid, if possible, or else in a hallway or park, on a sidewalk or in a parking lot, or in a corner of a store. Even if one can find no other place than a church, it is permissible to pray in it!
We should not forget to point out here that Muslims living in non-Muslim countries sometimes delay or abandon their prayers for another, completely different, reason, which is that they feel too embarrassed to pray in front of the kuffaar in public or open places, or they are afraid that they will make fun of them and regard them as odd. This is a serious mistake. How can a Muslim feel embarrassed about proclaiming the truth and worshipping openly, hastening to fulfil the command of Allaah at the time when Allaah has said it is to be done? We ask Allaah to help us all to remember Him, to be grateful to Him and to worship Him properly.
