I have a question to Muslims.

1) Is it compulsory for you people to pray five times a day ?
What if you miss it ? Will you get punished ?

2) Is it true that the day a muslim boy is engaged to a muslim girl they are married ?
What is Niqah or something ?

It is permissible to miss prayer in some serious uncontrollable circumstance such as sickness or something(however, from my knowledge I believe they do have to make it up later). Also, there's a few days in a month where women aren't required to pray due to menstruation.

2) Is it true that the day a muslim boy is engaged to a muslim girl they are married ?

I'm not sure what you're asking. Please elaborate.

What is Niqah or something ?

You mean niqab? It's this: http://www.zawaj.com...

There is a muslim tradition where engaged people are considered married by the Society.

Do you pray in the middle of the day like during school and work? Or in the car if you have to? (And do you do it 5 times a day?)

Yes, where the man and woman only unite to have sex and nothing else.

Why is it still practiced in Muslim countries ?

That's a problem with being a muslim in the west. Prayer times can often fall during school and work hours. In Islamic countries activity like stops everywhere for people to pray. Haha.

It is called mut'a, meaning temporary marriage. This is an innovation and totally non-Islamic, and is practiced in Iran where the majority believe that this is a permissible ruling in Islam.

Marriage in Islam is much more than a physical relationship.

Why aren't they required to pray on those days?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.
