hey This year in the month of Ramadhan one Muslim from Malaysia is going into space . Ulemma`s opinion is that as he is in travel he can postpone fasting and can pray only 3 time a day. There are lots of relaxation also for relgious practice. Thanx GOD islam is so easy religion to be foolowed everywhere.

Hey i got a clue. Hhere exist a biological clock in our brain. People doing long airline trip may have observed jet lag where he may rise at midnight in differnt distant country.Only after fewdays he adopt the day night cycle of that country. So i agree with talibul islam to practice 12 hr 12 hr day night or 24hr a day schedule. but not still sure coz in hadith the timing of different prayers are in accordance with the position of sun in sky.

Salam, About fasting or praying in Arctica or antiarctica (doesn't matter, one way is: 1- you can follow a time schedule ( Salat-Namaz, fasting) for the nearest city or place that falls on your LONGITUDE. i.e. if you are in the South pole, find your LONGITUDE and go up North till you find a place north on the same longitude that has sunset/sunrise and follow that timing. Follow that for the whole 12 months ( 6 months, Dat/Night). 2- Another way ( needs some observation and a bit of Astronomical knowledge) is to watch the Sun. When it is at Minmum Altitude on the Horizon, i.e. Lowest in the sky, then you can take that as similar to a Sunrise ( from EAST) or Sunset( from the West). Watch the sun again for the highest point in the sky Maximum Altitude, then that will be the NOON (zohr Time for prayer). Add 12 hours to it, then that will be the MIDNIGHT. Thank you

asallamoalikum,i have one hadith i heard from imam about day of judgment,prophet Muhammad (saws) was telling sahabah about fitnah of dajjal & his coming,that he will show up in dunya 4 forty days & he will cover whole world in forty days,but first day of his appearance is going to b long as 40days or 40month then next day as equal as week,then rest of days r going to b regular,what type of miracles he perform,how people will belive him & beliver will recognize him,but the imaan of sahabah was so strong that first question came in there mind that ya nabi how we r going to perform salah in the first day of dajjal? prophet Muhammad(saws) replied according to the regular day,mean with measurement as of 12hrs day & 12hrs night,since am not alim,detail & proper way u can discuss with some one who is more knowledgeable insh'Allah may Allah save all of us from that coming fitnah of dajjal ameen
