Contact Prayer Obstacles
« on: October 01, 2018, 05:22:52 PM »
I am new here and this question may have been answered in a prior submission.  If so please direct me to the link to keep from repeating the same question and answer.

My question is how is one suppose to wash or even pray when at work with no facilities to accommodate Muslims?  Does the Quran make mention of this and what we are suppose to do when we are unable to wash or even pray because of work hours?

Thank you for any enlightenment on this topic.

good logic

Peace Richard.
"Fattaqu Allah Ma Istataatum". Do the best you can in your striving to seek help from the Lord to grow your soul in preparation to meet and face your creator.
I believe "Aquimi Salat" and "Dhikr" are means to connect to GOD/to feed our soul/to remember to seek help against "Fahcha and Munkar" that we face daily from this life.(Inna Salat Tanha Any Al Fahcah wa Al Munkar, Wala Dhikr Allah Akbar" and is food for our soul).

There are all sorts of priorities we give to our life. We place them as the most important to the less important. This is the key to our loyalties to what we love the most.
GOD has made the system of salvation easy if we adjust our attitude and priorities. That is up to the individual to sort himself/herself according to their convictions and choices.
Now GOD knows each person and how/what they choose and why. GOD also knows that we strive to feed the human body and that we have needs in this life to earn, socialise, look after each other, play games, travel...etc. So GOD understands how busy we are.
If we are busy or are not in a position(lack of facilities) or even if we are afraid of others/circumstances and we cannot physically perform prayer/dhikr then (Farijalan Aw Rukbanan) you remember GOD /connect to GOD in our mind. We have other routines in life that we can be rigid towards like sports, meetings,... Similarly if our body is busy then our mind needs to take over the duties of GOD s system ( and do salat inside your head) to keep the balance of feeding  both the body and soul.
If one can find five minutes and has the facilities and privacy to do the prayer at work then fine, if not then it can be done in the mind.
When one gets into the habit of putting GOD as priority number one, we can change our attitude towards remembering GOD 24/7 inside our mind. This will serve as a bell /warning against all sorts of things/ choices that harms our redemption and serves as a platform to develop our soul in preparation to meet GOD..
Best of luck  brother.
GOD bless you
Peace.
