    i live in saudi and i can vouch for that. Saudi is the only country in the world where all the shops have to close when the adhan goes off. so lets say im at the mall and it goes off, the shops close and we go pray in the masjid in the mall. its also so nice hearing the adhan and the prayers at fajr maghrib and isha from different masjids local to me.
    Normally when the shops close I stay inside and finish my shopping lol, I'm trapped in but there are other people so it's not that bizzare. And true, no better feeling than hearing the adhan five times a day, especially at fajr alhamdulilah.

    Lool why? Which subject are you studying?
    Yh but if it means stressing this much then it's annoying. I'm surfing anxiety threads on tsr but they're not that helpful😒

    Oh yh saudi compounds are sick. When you live in them or occasionally visit it's like entering a different country lol

    Salaam guys,

    Do you ever feel how much of an ease it is to be in a muslim country, or even one with a muslim majority, in regards to praying. Here in the UK im not saying its difficult alhamdolillah its ok to pray here, but at times it can be awkward like praying in public. I mean when I was in Pakistan, there, there was like every opportunity for you to actually prayer salah, wheather it was in the park or in the village there was always like a prayer mat or an area.

    And at places like work, they are able to work around their times so they can go with the changing times of salah. Alahmdolillah for those experiencing this, its a great benefit.
    Walaykum asalaam

    Yep I agree. I guess it's just a matter of practising in these conditions, inshaAllah it will become second nature.

    Oh okay, you must have a lot of PMs
    It's okay, but you have to wake up bare early and sometimes lessons are boring. But you have to do things like this in order to do what you want to do in the future.
