    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?

    No even though im born to Muslim parents each prayer has a specific time in which you can pray so for example zuhar from 12-3 pm , they should pray when they get time in between and not skip lessons for praying.

    I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to pray in it during your free time (but I think it should be available to ALL people to pray in, not just Muslims), but why on Earth should you be let out of lessons to pray? That's just absurd.

      I agree with above poster.

      You can obviously use it, but it makes sense not in lessons, otherwise learning becomes disrupted. You have breaks.

      im muslim are yea i guess i agree to an extent, but no its not obligatory to pray at the set time as you should well know,wen i was at college we were alloweed to pray but it was whoever had a break from lessons,if you are doing something then you are allowed to make up for the missed prayer later

      and no i dont think its turning a college into a mosque either

      they're lying i prayed through primary-secondary schools college and now uni, you can pray at college. obviously try not to be late but if you're a few minutes late so what. if they still ban you then go to class on time and when prayer time comes go to the corner and pray, when they chuck you out of class take it up with the governors and local MP if you must, it worked for me. i forgot about the leaving lessons bit, you can't leave lessons because getting an education is a form of worship, only cause a fuss if its break time and they tell you no dont pray because you might be late.

      The College isn't being turned in to a Mosque. Please re-read my original post and do not be ignorant. There isn't any need for it.

      No, they shouldn't be allowed to pray? Are you Muslim? To be honest, as a Muslim praying is a fundamnetal thing in my religion. It is a must. I always pray and never have missed lessons and I'm always achieving top marks and grades!

      Can't you pray during lunchtime ..I am sure you can pray Zuhur on that time and as soon school finishes you can pray Asr. Not exactly on time but you can still pray during that range.

      No, Muslims should not be allowed to follow their religion.

      Assalamu Alaykum,

      Dhuhur is fine. However, Asr, is at like 3pm now (the ideal time - start). I finish college at around 4.15pm most times and Maghrib is at like 4pm.

      Oh right, you finish quite late ..just tell your teacher you are going to toilet when it's Asr time and pray.

      Yeah, but the thing is, it disrupts other people's learning.

      OP: it's not a national rule, but your college does have rules. Ours had a rule that if we were more than 5 mins late to the class, we weren't allowed into the class. You should have thought about these rules before you applied to study there. All I can suggest is using another time to pray (like someone said before, you don't have to do it exactly at a particular hour, but between slots), or lie to whoever tells you you can't go in, and say you have a free period :yep:. There'll be some way around it, I guess you just have to be diplomatic and speak to the school and come to some conclusion, or suck it up and accept that there are rules there for all students at your college, and you have to follow them.

      I wouldn't do what this user says and go to the papers or MP or whatever, because you want the school on your side. Especially when you'll be expecting a good uni reference

      How does it disrupt other people's learning. It's not like I'm going to be worshipping them. I'd go to a room and pray.

      Which country is that? Indeed, Muslims have a lot of problems here.
