  3. In China, some resteraunts had a special room for prayers and special taps for wuzu etc. My brother sometimes, if he can’t get away, prays wherever he is but just mouths the words without doing the all the motions. It drives him nuts.

  5. Miral,

    You have set an example for many college students and workers to pray during the regular day. No more excuses whatsoever! Great article! AlHamdullah!

  7. Excellent article Mirali! I used to play hide and seek for a while, but then decided to just come out of the so-called closet at work! I told my office mate that I need to pray – and surprisingly, she’s like – sure, that’s cool.. She respects my time and even stays off the phone and locks our office for 5 minutes. Whew – I was stressing for nothing! – Keep up the good work, Mirali!

  8. Loved this article! I’m an elementary school teacher and have often ignored students who’ve walked in to pick up forgotten mittens or so during lunch hour while I was praying- normally responding to their “Ms. Saeed?” by going into Sijdah or Rukuh.

  9. love it love it love it. miral, thanks so much for writing this. now i think we all need to work on not feeling like we have to jump up and pretend like we dropped something/lost a contact. ive done that so many times it hurts. not to mention, i dont even wear contacts…

  11. This is really fantastic Miral!! Great article, and you really brought to light something a lot of us have had to deal with. It’s funny though because it causes so much stress until you actually explain it to people, and then you realize they really don’t care either way :).
