    inshAllah if you explained to him in a better way, he'll realize Allah's command is more important than his business, his job, his life and that Allah is the one who makes his business prosper and fail.

    In the Qur'an it says that the true believers say "Innassalaati, wa nusuki, wa mahyaaya, wa mamaati, lilaahirRabbil alameen". "Verily my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are all for Allah, Lord of the Worlds".

    I don't remember the reference, but you can google it. I'm at work right now.

    This is a test Allah has made for you bro to see if you go with Allah's command or your bosses. Indeeed Allah is our Protector. May Allah strengthen you.

      I don't pray at work due to dirty clothes. Don't know if it's a valid excuse.
      There is a clock on your forehead counting down to the time of your death. Only Allah knows how many seconds are left on it

        would you still get at least some reward even if you pray in dirty clothes? i know about how muslims clean them selves before prayer but i would have though prayer was better than no prayer.

        There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.

          You should ask an Imam on this. Not praying at the fixed time is a major sin. It is a first thing we will be asked about on the day of judgment.

          If you work in the sewage or some other sanitary maintenance position, keep a sport bag with fresh clothes somewhere, so you can pray.

            screw your boss. Allah is boss.

            if he dont like it, he can fire you, and then inshallah you can get a better job.
            And the (faithful) slaves of the Most Gracious (All‚h) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness. (25:63)

            O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful torment? (10) That you believe in All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW),and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of All‚h with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (11) (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwellings in Adn (Edn) Paradise; that is indeed the great success. (12)

            JazakAllah khair for the duas but i would prefer duas for shahadah instead.

              is owned by Muslims, run by Muslims yet they didnt give you time to pray? :S
              why dont you just talk to them about it? how they can rotate the staff, few of you pray at the back, whilst the others work and then swap.

                Well, my boss doesn't allow the only female Muslim worker to wear a hijab.

                  This is technically the best job I can ask for. It's owned by Muslims and large members of workplace are Muslims. We are allowed to pray. Friday night was the only night I wasn't able to pray because it was too busy. We are allowed moderately sized beards and we get free food.

                  When I worked at a grocery store when I converted to Islam, I wasn't allowed to grow any facial hair. I was the only Muslim at the store so everyone viewed me as a freak. And me trying to pray probably is the reason why they won't rehire me.

                  I'm very lucky to get my current job considering how bad the economy is

                    if its a Subway, then can this sister not take it further to the Subway management instead of the boss of the store? surely they have more authority than him?

                        The management agrees with my boss in that it would drive away customers.

                            i thought you said the boss was muslim

                            what a sad state of affairs of the muslim today, and we wonder why the muslim ummah is in such a humiliated state

                            and its exactly scenarios like this that display whats wrong with this ummah

                            you have a muslim boss who is beholden to the kuffar
                            and he has muslims who are beholden to him

                            where is the trust in Allah and the wanting for the blessings of Allah? are we no different than the kuffar who abandon their religion for some worldly gain, and lose in both this world and the akhira?

                            there are many stories within islam about muslims who abandoned the temporal mindset of the kuffar and instead trusted in Allah and Allah pulled them thru

                            we say we are muslim, we say we believe in Allah, but it is only lip service

                            if you believe in Allah, and you trust in Allah, then DO IT

                            Allah gives your boss sustenance, Allah gives SUBWAY management sustenance, why are you people NOT believing and trusting in Allah?

                            every minute that sister works without hijab because her boss says so is a decrease in her blessings, and you MEN who stand around NOT standing up for Islam and her rights are committing major sins

                            stand up, believe in Allah, obey Allah

                            there is no obedience in any of the creation, whether your boss, your mother, your husband, NO ONE when it comes to disobedience to Allah

                              If my boss didn't allow a sister to wear a hijab, I would kick up a heck of fuss to the point where I would rather be unemployed.
