    Not on purpose, I can't leave work to pray, there's quite literally no time to do so, what I'm try to establish is where I stand on that front as it's not due to me that I cannot pray but forces outside of my control, surely there is understanding?
    Peace be with you,

    This is the view of the shia-school of thought. While it is permissible and even encouraged to perform them separately, the Quran and the hadiths in our position give us three distinct times for salah. You can if there is hardship combine the prayers, and this is also the practice of Muhammed pbuh who was seen combining even when there was no rain, war, fear etc, to make it easier upon his ummah.

    Al Kafi Volume one:

    89–6, ‘Ali ibn Ibrãhīm (–) his father (–) Ibn Abi ‘Umayr (–) ‘Abdullãh ibn Sinãn (–) Abu ‘Abdillãh (p.b.u.h.) as saying:

    "The Messenger of Allãh (p.b.u.h.a.h.p.) has said, 'Says Allãh the Almighty, "Learned discourses among My creatures is an instrument to bring the dead hearts back to life provided that they intend to (learn) My commands."
    Hasan - Graded by Alama Majlisi



    Kitab Al Kafi Volume 2 - Keeping ties with near relatives

    1977–2. Muḥammad ibn Yaḥyã (–) Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad ibn ‘Īsã (–) ‘Alī ibn an-Nu‘mãn that Isḥãq ibn ‘Ammãr said:

    "He said: 'Abū ‘Abdillãh (‘a.s) told me that a man came to the Prophet (ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.) and said: "O Messenger of Allãh! My family has decided to assail me, sever their ties with me, and curse me. Am I permitted toseparate from them?" He [ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.] said: "If you do that, then Allãh will separate from all of you." He said: "So, what should I do?" He [ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.-w.s.] said: "Join he who leaves you; grant he who withholds
    from you and forgive he who oppresses

    How can we understand the anger of Allah swt?

    When reflecting on what we are as creatures, contingent, created, susceptible of going from one mood to another, being sorrowful and angry, we then reflect on something bigger than us - Allah swt. We must know we should never reflect on what Allah swt is, in terms of his essence, but we must rule out what he is not.

    Anger is a change of state in ones emotion - at one moment they are angry, another moment they are not. They actually 'feel' that emotion, it passes them, it changes their state.

    Our creator is free from such a state, and is above that.

    Such a term is not befitting Allah swt.

    A hadith:


    "Abu Qurra said: So do you belie the narration that has come [that says], “When Allah becomes angry, His anger becomes known to the angels that hold the throne. They feel the weight of His anger on their shoulders, so they fall down in prostration. And when the anger goes, it (i.e. the throne) lightens and they return to their places”?

    So Abu’l Hasan عليه السلام said: Inform me about Allah تبارك وتعالى: from when He cursed Iblees till your time, He has been angry with him. So when was He pleased [during that time]?
    And in your dogma, His anger with him and with his supporters and with his followers is persistent. How dare you describe your Lord with changes from state to state, and [say] that He experiences what the creatures experience?! May He be glorified and exalted. He does not perish with those who perish, nor does He change with those who change, nor does He replace with those who are replaced and those who are under His hand and His management. All of them require Him, and He is independent from others. (al-Kafi, Volume 1 hadith 332)(Sahih) "

    Another hadith on this issue:

    Muhammad b. Yahya from Muhammad b. al-Husayn from Muhammad b. Isma`il b. Bazee` from his uncle Hamza b. Bazee` from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام.

    [I asked] regarding the saying of Allah عز وجل, “When they invoked Our anger, We took revenge on them” (43:55). So he said: Allah عز وجل does not become frustrated like our frustration, rather, He created the awliya’ for Himself, who then become frustrated and satisfied. They are created and they have a Lord. So He made their satisfaction His satisfaction and their anger His anger, because He has made them the callers to Him and the guides to Him. For that they became this way, and it (i.e. anger) does not reach [Him the way it reaches] His creatures. Rather, this meaning is what has been said about it. And He says, “Whoever humiliates My wali has declared war against Me and has called Me to it”. And He says, “Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah” (4:80). And He says, “Those who have pledged allegiance to you have pledged allegiance to Allah”. “The hand of Allah is above their hands” (48:10). All of this and that which is similar apply to what has been mentioned to you.


    And this is satisfaction, anger, and other than that from the things that take this form. Had it been possible for despair and weariness to reach Allah – even though He is the one who has created the two and implemented them – a person may say, “Allah may vanish one day, because if anger and weariness entered Him, then change would have entered Him; hence He would not remain safe from perish. Thus, there would be no distinction between His component and another’s, nor between the Able and those subject to His ability, nor between the Creator and the creation”. Allah is exalted above this saying with a great highness. Yea, He is the Creator of all things, not because He needed them, for since it is not needed, it is impossible to limit and condition Him. So understand this, by Allah’s تعالى will. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 354)

    You're welcome brother

    Remember, while prayers is obligatory , you are allowed to combine them - combining them is not akin to missing.

    Work, I can do the morning and evening prayers but the other 2 during working hours, it's impossible.

    Not one, it's a strange place and one I hope to get out of soon but until then, I'm stuck.
    Hey man, sorry for the late reply. Ibn fulaan and co have basically told you about the combined prayer thing so there's not much I can say.

    May Allah make it easier for you to pray at work. Good job on keeping the others, I find fajr can especially be tricky at times ( like when I sleep through all my alarms)

    Hey is this the Islamic society for University of Cumbria?
    If so are there any sisters here who are applying for accommodation for September in the Lancaster campus?
    I would like to stick to an all Muslim dorm if possible (all female also ).

    I am worried I will end up with non-muslims who will be all yanno :z
    Wa'alaykum asalaam.

    No this Islamic society is purely for the student room. We don't belong to any one university
