April 2013: ISLAMIC Q&A
1. My friend recommended that this summer, I put the Maghrib Sunset and Isha’ Night prayers together at the time of Maghrib. The reason he gives is that the time period between the standard Isha’ Night prayer and Fajr Dawn prayer is very short and not sufficient for rest. He said he merges them together. Can I merge my prayers together so I can sleep longer during the summer nights? Answer >>
2. I was asked to be a Juma khatib prayer leader in the local masjid, but they stipulated that I should recite dua out loud after every prayer. I am the only one who is studying Islamic sciences in my town, so I was requested for this duty and I would like to accept, but I have not heard of this practice before. Should I recite dua loudly after every prayer? Answer >>
3. I know Islam forbids taking drugs, but what if the doctor prescribes a pain reliever after surgery? My doctor insists that I will heal better and quicker if I take the pain reliever medication after my surgery. Is it permissible for me to take this medicine? Answer >>
