A Place of My Own

السلام عليك

بسم الله

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 :-)

Alhamdulilah you found a place to pray. I like it that the place you found was all lit it was waiting for you! SubhanAllah.

That was a problem for me too finding a place to pray at work where there wasn't a lot of traffic or I wouldn't be in the way.

Awie! I like ur prayer green!
And yea, i know the feeling that ur trying to find something and Allah just helps you right on time! SubhanAllah!
That looks like a nice cozy spot tho! At my college, there is absolutely NO place prayable! :( so my dhuhr prayers are usually qadha :(

And thats amazing that you can work out the direction of the qibla according to the streets!! Wow girl...!

Stacy: Thank you :-)

Nurul: SubhanAllah!

MishMish: Finding a place to pray is like a special scavenger hunt I get to do every Tuesday and Thursday, lol. I've started taking pictures of each place I find, just to see where I show up HAHA. Alhamdulillah I am so greatful we can pray anywhere :-)

Ayah: yeah, it was so exciting walking into the room and turning to face the qibla and finding this lovely little corner. Alhamdulillah!

Splendid: Thanks! It is a travel sajda that someone brought back for me after they did omrah mashaAllah. It is a thin material that folds up really small and I stick in a pocket in my bag.
SubhanAllah that is so true! It gives me the warm fuzzy feeling subhanAllah.

firdous: Jazakillah khair :-)

Rubber: aww yaar :-D subhanAllah

Texan: Aw thanks, Jazakillah khair! Glad you liked it *grin*
