Islamic Duties / Prayer
« on: June 16, 2019, 06:38:03 AM »
   I understand that standing up and sujood are prescribed on us in the Quran as a part of prayer. But my question is does the Quran ever state why this is how we should pray? I guess essentially what I am asking is why are these required and not simply just praying in your head or something similar 5 times throughout the day?

General Discussions / Abraham

   Did prophet Abraham have any revelation? For example, Moses had the Torah, Jesus had the Gospel, and Muhammad had the Quran. I am just wondering more about Abraham. If anyone could teach me about him, that would be great!


Islamic Duties / Eating Meats
« on: May 14, 2019, 06:01:42 PM »
I read through the food & drink articles and now I’m confused about something. Are we not allowed to eat meat that is not considered halal (certified halal as in the way it was slaughtered)? For example, can we eat chicken and beef from places like Burger King, chick fil a, and any other famous fast food places?

Islamic Duties / Fasting during Ramadan
« on: February 18, 2019, 05:49:50 AM »
   I had a question regarding Ramadan. Of course it is a time to abstain from food/drink and try to become the best version of yourself (reading Quran, praying, etc.), but my question pertains to the actual fasting. What else are we supposed to abstain from besides food/drink  (for example, do we have to abstain from cussing, sexual practices, etc.)? Also, what is the purpose of waiting till sunset/night to break fast; this is something I have always wondered about. Is there a particular reason given in the Quran or is this just something ordained on us?

    Brother Joseph, can you telling me your thoughts about plastic surgery and the ruling on this from a Quranic perspective? If anyone else has ideas/thoughts please feel free to inform me as well.

   First I would like to thank you for taking time to create a website with all this information; you have truly allowed me to have a better understanding of Islam. My question is regarding prayer. How does one prayer when they are out? For example, if one is out with friends and it is time to prayer but one does not know when they will be back home or in a place where they can pray how would one go about praying? Also, is one allowed to pray a car or while waiting in a store? I another question I have is missing prayers to go to something for school or some type of tutoring? I was always taught that when you miss a pray when you come home to immediately pray it with the intention of praying a missed prayer, is this the correct/only way to go about prayers when unable to pray?
