    You're turning Islam into a burden, when it isn't.

    We've been given the chance to pray between two set times rather than at one particular time- I'm assuming you have breaks (?) Why do you not pray then?

    You're making a fuss out of nothing; it's ridiculous.

    Yes, because its a good thing. If they are late for lessons thats wrong, they should read when there is time left. But missing a Namaaz, for Muslims, is like killing someone so ahh!

    This is such a ridiculous question, of course they should not be allowed to miss any time of learning to pray. Who do you think you are? Oh yeah, I follow that Jedi-Knight religion, can I please miss 10 mins of a lesson to practise my light saber swooshing technique?

      If the college won't let you miss some lessons to do this then there's nothing you can do but if you have any nice teachers then plead them and they may allow you.
      I don't think it's necessarily a case of the teachers being mean, or inconsiderate. Perhaps they merely want what they believe is best for the student. Leaving a lesson (or arriving late) disrupts the student's learning and could lead them to get a lower grade than they might otherwise have got. The results of the class reflect on the teacher.

      So I wouldn't be so quick to write the teacher off as someone who is not "nice". Unfortunately we seem to have a situation where the different priorities come into conflict: the student is worried about their religious obligations, while the teacher is worried about their teaching obligations. Any solution must try to balance the different obligations of the teacher and the student.

      Hi,

      We've been given a prayer room but are not allowed to pray in it? The College says that it's a national rule that you cannot be late for lessons because of prayer or leave lessons for prayer.

      Do you think Muslims should be allowed to pray and folllow their religion or not?
      Join up prayers in the way you're allowed, pray in your lunch breaks, etc. The college shouldn't give you any extra leeway just because you need to pray. It's important to you but you need to understand that being in school is a good enough reason to pray late or join up the prayers. Why must muslims be so rigid in this manner?

      If you actually believed in it, I don't see why not.

        No. Not at college. Why should a college be turned into a mosque?
        Not the college. A room. A room would be used as a masjid.

        Why have you been given a prayer room in the first place? :curious:

        And national rule? Since when? I know plenty of schools that allows this and people pray during their free period.

        I call troll :troll:

        :rolleyes:lol aRE YOU serious you cant just get up and leave the class. Look I pray at uni during lunch, don't worry you wont miss the prayer time .

        You can pray duhr and asr together if you feel you will miss asr prayer. But usually if you finish at 3:30 you can pray asr then, just before magrib starts.

        But no don't start asking to leave class they might change there mind and tell you not to pray at all.
        My college never let us have a room, so im sooo happy we have one at uni.
