  • Cutting Friday Prayers
     OP - October 03, 2010, 09:26 PM

    I'm sure they are people who cut friday prayers by going to some places where you won't be found

    Normally, I go out of house ,an hour before friday prayer to a football pitch of a school close to our home and wait until they finish their prayers, then i will go back home.

    Last friday was unfortunate for me, while i was taking a break after studying for exams throughout the morning, i went to get stoned forgetting it was friday. just as i was passing the dining room to head straight to my room and lock myself in,i came across my mom sitting and told me it was time for friday prayer.

    I went into my room, took a praying Mat, and a book to while away my time at the football pitch, While on my way 3 of our neighbours offered me a ride and i politely declined by telling them i am going with a freind of mine that lives close by, just as i was getting close to the pitch, My Uncle drove by and stopped after seeing me. he opened the side door and beckons me to enter. i couldn't lie to him because he knows i don't know anyone living on the road, so i entered and we drove off to the mosque only to find out that they have finished.

    At first i was glad that we are heading back home, but he insisted that we should look for another mosque, where they haven't started praying, i was pissed off finmad because we have to drive outside the city to find one which we did.

    What's even worse i got stoned for nothing, i spent one hour listening to sermon(Khutbah) which irks the shit out of me, and another hour spent on traffic jam,listening to Sudais reciting Surah Baqara on the radio and driving all the way back home.

    Next time i am going to wear a hoodie and a facecap

    Huh?
    I am trying to understand whether i have pissed you off or not, i don't know, but i am posting this story because it amuses me anytime i recall what just happened that day and i thought i might share it just for laughs,or maybe i created a thread in a wrong section Whatever?. i'm not writing it to make it look like "hey it's cool  to cut friday prayers because im an ex-muslim and it's fun".

    During Ramadan I used to leave the house for Jumma... but I didn't actually go inside the mosque.  I just wandered around the mosque in side streets and alley ways (nothing dodgy!) until Jumma was over.

    I shouldn't even have to do that.  Meh...

    Ouch, that was an unfortunate day! Grin I'm glad I'm not a guy, especially now that my dad has been getting more religious. He goes to the mosque nearly everyday now! I blame old age.  Roll Eyes

    Man, Friday prayer. I feel your pain man.

    Faking Jummah was probably the one thing that kept my family sane -- I would drive to the uni, park (in a sideroad where I couldn't be spotted), and literally doze off listening to the radio. Maybe get out and walk to the shop to buy a packet of skittles.

    The worst thing would be going with my dad... nightmare. He would ask me "where was jummah last week" (it tends to jump locations).  whistling2

    I went to jummah quite recently, kind of as a compromise to my dad before I left home. I had to clean my ears out they were so full of bullshit afterwards. This is one thing I envy women in Islam for, they didn't have to go to jummah.

    lol i have my ipod with the head phones when ever I am dragged out to a mosque for eid or my dad stays home, in which case its a tradition to go. usually i dont have the car or i am working  dance.

    best way to enjoy the khutba is just to put ur beats on and get lost in em.

    lol naw son. i am bit brave. i just put them in ear and chill out. if anyone asks just say nothing is on. better of coming in wearing them.

    i guess if u live in a muslim country then it would be hard. in that case put them under ur hoodie and keep the hood on you. good luck !!

    or just come late to the jumma, make an excuse to do wudu and just stay there washing ur hands and face slooooooooowly, sit at the back where u can smell the sisters' perfume at least Smiley

     Cheesy

    I don't go to jummah or the mosque anymore. Haven't been since september and doubt I will ever go again unless it is part of some family "function". Goddamn I hate these "functions" where everyone acts all pseudo-religious, "Ooh look at me I'm getting up to pray you lesser people, ooh look at me I'm wearing a hijab whilst the guy reads out of a Qur'an."

    Give 'em a a fucking cracker.

    yea i agree with on all that self righteous display of piety crap. every time there is a group prayer my cousin leads who is the same age as me. he is soooo much more respected for that versus me lol. when i was muslim id feel bad for being lazy and not having enough knowledge to lead the prayers now i am proud of it  Roll Eyes

    I used to lead the magrib prayers occasionally, as my father could not pronounce Arabic with the correct tajweed. I used to love that feeling of being the man of the house, plus it was a nice little thing for the family to do together in the evening.
