Re: Funny stories from salat

When I was younger, my whole family would go to the masjid for Taraweeh because my oldest brother would lead... Well one day during Taraweeh, my throat was really dry, so I popped a mint out of my coat pocket during salaah and ate it lol... Afterwards, my mom told me that I'm not supposed to eat or put anything in my mouth while I pray. I felt really stupid lol

Re: Funny stories from salat

There was also a time during Ramadan where everyone was rushing me to go to the masjid for taraweeh, so I hurried and we got there on time. I started praying my salaah, but for some reason it just didn't feel right and I couldn't concentrate, and after a couple of rak'aat, I realized I had forgotten to make wudu. I felt like the biggest idiot ever!!!
But subhanallah, the prayer didn't even feel right!!

Re: Funny stories from salat

Last year i went to London to visit family, my brother took me for a walk to the parliament area, we prayed asr very close to the bridge tower, we walked further and got to buckingham palace and maghrib comes in, we decided to pray on the ground close to the palace just before the Canada gate for those of you that know the layout, my brother is leading, right after the 2nd rakah, 2 sisters join us, they had a compass,they kept on adjusting it and they turned me 180 degrees, (west) now i have my back to my imam (my brother), i didn’t know what to do??

Re: Funny stories from salat

LOL thats pretty funny ^^.

Once in pakistan in sargodha, punjab about 3 years ago i was at a bazaar with my uncle and since it was now jumma time, he took me to a masjid nearby to pray.
I was in like the middle row and it was a pretty big crowd. So when the imam started salah, and after he finished saying Surah Fatihah i said Amin LOUD and seriously nooooo one else said Amin around me. I felt sort of embarssed lol. And i had no idea why they didn't say amin (that time i had no idea about this Madhabs issue lol). After the jumah salat was over and he said salaam, people nearby me loooked at me like a weird way lol. Two uncles with turbans and long big beards to the right and left to me were lookin at me in a slightly angry way tooo. I was like im sooo gettting out of heree lol.
After that i asked my uncle what was up with that he said oh its because this is a Hanafi masjid.

Re: Funny stories from salat

^no way!
shaykh abdulbary mentioned to us that he's heard of a man breaking another man's finger in salaah because he was moving it!

some people are so illiterate of knowledge subhanAllah lol.. but whenever possible, we too should be careful to learn the ways of the land and when there's differences in issues, to just do as they do in order
to not create trouble for ourselves!

Talk about extremism!!! I assume Shaytan was with him even in during salat

I remember back when I was in high school, a couple of friends and I had just broken our fast and got up for maghrib prayer. I guess I must have been really hungry because all of a sudden, me stomach started making really LOUD growling noises... and it wouldn't stop!!! The entire time my friends and were trying really hard not to laugh! I was sooooooooooo embarrassed!!!

Poor person was scared out of their mind!
A similar thing happened to my girls...that is amazing! subhanallah....isn't it something to reflect on that the non muslims they stumble upon muslims praying and they apologize for interrupting...here is a post from my blog about what happened to my girls. My daughter even wrote an acrostic about it :P


------
Yesterday, they all had eye appointments, and since we had to play catch up with time for them to make it to their ceramics class, hubby brought them to a space near an emergency exit to pray Asr while H chose a new pair of glasses.

Apparently, while they prayed, two times, someone opened the door, and didn’t see the girls behind it, thus banging it on them.

Our resident poet wrote two acrostics (also the latest craze they’re into) about the incident.

Oh my God, it’s Oh my God!
How did she not know we were there?
My sister was smashed by the door,
You wouldn’t believe it,
Goodness gracious me, she said,
Oh I’m sorry, that’s what she said,
Door was banged on us and then we started to giggle! Oh I’m sorry, Oh I am sorry,
Hit by the door
I was soo mad,
My sister was, too!
Suddenly the woman said, “Oh, I’m very sorry!”
Oh I am very sorry! We both laughed at that remark
Right after we finished praying.
Rolling with laughter, laughing uncontrollably
You just wouldn’t believe it!
