The other day I was wandering around our student union looking for a place to pray dhuhr. Prayer time started at 12:30 as did my next class, so I was already late but determined to find a spot to pray.
Every door I came to was locked locked locked locked.
But I had a really big need to find a room. I needed to PRAY you guys! "Ya Allah, help me find a place to pray!"
Finally at the end of the hall I found a room that was locked BUT the door was ever so slightly ajar.
I snuck into the room while trying to remember which direction was the qibla (I use the streets of our city to find the qibla as everything is set on N-S E-W directions).
The room was set up for a meeting of some kind and there was only ONE light on in the room. It was lighting up a little niche in the middle of one of the walls which just happened to be conveniently positioned to be facing the qibla!
I was so excited so I took a picture to show you guys, lol.
The first one is the meeting room and the second is my little niche with the light :-)
