  1. Praying While Facing Back Pain

    I have opted to not pray and make up for them later on because i cant even bend over without being in horrible pain.
  2. Asalaam Alykum, I have one simple question. How do i pray if i am in bad back pain? I don't want to see a doctor because i dont want to be prescribed pills because i dont want to rely on pills. Can i pray sitting down? Will it be accepted? I am having a hard time bowing while standing and can only do it half way and it hurts afterwards.
  3. Medication

    Salaams, I had a question regarding medication. If you have to see a doctor and get an injection, does that break your fast for that day?? Im inclined to think not since its not being swallowed.
  4. Salaam, When i break my fast i make this shake of one cube ice, 1 cup of milk, and i add this red liquid that my husband says is what Pakistani people usually break their fast with (Im Indian) called Roo Afza. Its very refreshing.
  5. Asalaam Alykum, You would think that someone like me would know more about Islam since i reverted 3 years ago, but i still have questions. I was talking to my husband and i think i have come to the realization that i have been fasting the wrong way for the last few years. He said it was from sunrise to sunset, but i have been doing it from fajr to maghrib. Which way is correct. Please help.
  6. How Many Rakat Do You Do?

    Asalaamu Alykum, I just had a question. My husband and i seem to disagree with the number of rakat to do during prayer. He says we have to do what is obligatory plus what is sunnat otherwise if we only do what is required, the prayer does not count. I always thought that it was the 17 rakat that you do during the day. Am i wrong?
  7. Mortgage Question

    Asalaam Alykum brothers and sisters, I had a question for you all that i hope someone can answer Insha'Allah I was wondering how people get around getting a mortgage. If someone wanted to buy a house or a condo or whatever, what would they have to do so that they are not paying any interest on it?? I would never have a spare $500,000-$1,000,000 lying around, so is my only option to rent for the rest of my life? I have heard of Islamic banks, but have also heard from others that they do not charge interest per se, but the whole system of paying back is like interest, so it defeats the purpose. I live in Vancouver, BC so houses here are not cheap. Just wondering what my options would be....
  8. Some Advice Please?

    Thank u for that information because i was wondering the same thing. i recently have been dealing with a flu that has been getting progressively worse...it has been okay so far and i have been taking my medication in the morning and night, but was wondering at what point does sickness lead to one breaking the fast. i do not wish to break my fast because its important to me to continue for as long as i can...i like to think of it as a challenge because up until now, my fasting has been a positive experience...and id like to keep it that way :sl:
  9. Asalaam Alaykum, I had a question i hope someone can answer. I understand that people who are sick are exempt from fasting due to health reasons. However, if that person still wanted to take part in Ramadan, what could they do?? I am asking on behalf of a friend of mine who is diabetic. Thank you.
  10. When Does Ramadan Begin?

    Ramadan Mubarak everyone!! Thank you for letting me know!
  11. Asalaam Alykum Brothers and Sisters, I am lost. I have been trying to figure this out, and i really dont know, so i need some help here. I came here to see when Ramadan starts, but according to the counter, it is Friday, but then i looked on my local site for prayer timings, and it says Saturday. I live in Vancouver, BC. Can someone help me figure out the correct date, as i would really not like to start off Ramadan on the wrong day..
  12. Mortgage

    Thank you all very much for the information!
  13. Mortgage

    i know mortgage is BAD, but what are there ways around it? do u: -rent for the rest of your life and never own? -are there Islamic banks you can go to in Canada? -there is no option C :sl:
  14. Hajj And Umrah Question

    Walikum Salaam, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! very much for the information. Actually, im in Vancouver now living at home with my family, and my witnesses are scattered across Canada :sl: (none in Vancouver) So i will just have to go to them :sl:
  15. Asalaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters, I have a simple question to ask, which may not have a simple response :sl: I am a revert and ive been reading up on doing Hajj or going for Umrah and i found out that you have to prove you are Muslim (if a revert), but i dont know how i can go about doing that because when i reverted, there were witnesses, but i never had to sign anything that showed i had reverted. How does one go about providing evidence of this??
