Islam in Space

Ever wondered how to pray or make wudu in space? Where would you face for qibla? How would you fast in Ramadan? Well in Malaysia, they are having a serious 2 day conference dedicated to answering questions about Muslims in space.

For instance, Muslims wash before they pray but not only is water a precious commodity in space, but it is also impractical in weightlessness.

Likewise, the faithful face Mecca. However, that will mean pin-pointing a moving location while in zero gravity.

And Muslim prayer times are linked to those of the sunrise and sunset, but in orbit the sun appears to rise and set more than a dozen times a day.

Does floating break your salah? HAHAHAHA

Ghetto Guyana

BBC News Article here:Guyana minister shot dead at home

Heavily armed gangs have flourished in recent years in Guyana, and efforts by the police and army to crush them have so far failed.

My parents are shocked. They say Guyana was never like this back in the day. I guess guns have been imported into the country and now gangs have evolved from this.

1 month from today

I’ll be done with another year of schooL! Takbir! Allah hu Akbar!

Everyone, please please please, make dua for me and my studies . InshaAllah. JazakumAllah khairan katheran. May Allah (sw) accept your duas.

U.S. Soldiers Against the War in Iraq

Listen to the replies of the Pro-War supporters. It’s so funny! Haha.

SubhanAllah, the soldiers talked about how they can shoot anything and it didn’t matter. 🙁 This is a great video showing that some American soldiers realize that this is wrong and they feel sorry about this. SubhanAllah!! May Allah have mercy on humanity.

It ends with Bob Marley! He’s the man!

May Allah (swt) allow more American people to see this. Ameen!
