    I think you can get microwaveable Chicken Pakoras, but their nowhere near as good as home-made ones! :yep:

    I know what you mean, I tend to base my decision of what I'm going to eat around how the name of the food sounds.. :p:
    exactly!!!

    no one wants to eat 'fungi wrap' even if its doesnt have fungus in it.. lol

    Taraweeh is 8 rukaas minimum, and 20 maximum. You do them after the Isha prayer in pairs. So you pray two then end the prayer, then two again etc. till you've done as many as you want. There isn't a special duah, it's just normal prayers. The prayer before sehri (we call it sohor ^^) isn't anything specific, it's just doing extra so you can get reward for it. You can do that all year but obviously in Ramadan it's extra rewarding. I usually do what I can after I've eaten up until fajr starts.

    Hope that helped =) good luck everyone, Ramadan Kareem.

    thank you very much for explaining. well im off to pray then! ramadaan kareem to you too x

    can someone tell me how many rakaats we have to do during tarawi and how you do it, and is there any special duah you have to read when doing it?

    alsoooo what is that prayer we have to do late at night before sehri and how many rakaats has it got?
    you could do the tarawih prayers with 11 raka'ah ... like fajr prayer two rakaahs and when you reach 4 then rest for a little bit then continue until the 8th rakaah and rest again and then do another 2 rakaahs like fajr to reach 10 and then end it with one rakaah to have total 11

    in the 11th rakaah you could read this
    اللهم اهدني فيمن هديت، وعافني فيمن عافيت، وتولني فيمن توليت، وبارك لي فيما أعطيت، وقني شرَّ ما قضيت، فإنك تقضي ولا يقضى عليك، إنه لا يذل من واليت، تبارك ربنا وتعاليت
    sorry i don't know it in english! but that's a video for it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0Edphd1hBg
    you could read in it the 11th before rokou' and ofcourse you could add to it .. imams usually add to it but the script above is what is known that the prophet used to say


    about your second question i didn't get what 'sehri' means ... but anyway except for you 5 prayers you don't 'have' to pray any additional prayers

    To be fair you were acting like a complete and utter cheesecake.
    I'm always like that, she's lucky though I would have gone all the way with this but I can't be asked now, need to go pray as well.

    I don't really like classing myself as a sect, but a few people mentioned to me there is only a particular sect(s) (don't know if it's more than one sect) who agree with reading the 8 instead of 20.

    Uh, guys I think we should steer well clear of fried thinges right after breaking our fast as it is dangerous (No, seriously!). And remember don't full your stomach upto 100% right after breaking your fast as it is the worst feeling for me, ever! And its in the sunnah as well.
