    Eastern Orthodox classes

    I know that the Catholic Church offers RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) classes for those interested in learning their tradition, does the Orthodox Church have any sort of equivalent?

    The Mihrab in the Home?

    That's wonderful! I really think it is a market that is open. I thought about making stuff and trying to sell it but just don't have the time.

    Help with Hebrew text

    I am trying to make a design for a Jewish friend of mine. I want to use the text that is on a challah cover I found online, but am having trouble making out some of the letters as I don't know the Hebrew alphabet very well, and I find it almost impossible to differentiate between some letters...

    The fast is going well. Going without food was hard at first but it isn't so bad now. Going without water was really hard for me the first few days, but I'm adapting to that as well. For me the hardest part is having to deal with very unsupportive family. Oh well, such is life. I want to please...

    The Mihrab in the Home?

    Every time I go to a new masjid I am drawn to the mihrab. There is just something about it that I love, and I was thinking about it tonight and how it would be cool to have a small box of some sort that could be designed in a similar manner for use for prayer in the home. I figured this was...

    Ramadan Mubarak!

    Thank you, Jayhawker Soule. Ramadan Kareem to you as well. I am immensely excited (and somewhat nervous) about my first time observing Ramadan.

    Muslim Parrot?

    wMhaqutt1wk I thought this was really cute and I would share it with the Muslims on RF. Hearing the parrot say "Allahu ackbar" was awesome. I can't understand most of it, but it made me happy. It reminds me of something I read a couple of days ago. "Do you not realize that everyone in the...

    Skipping Friday Prayers

    Wow, I had no idea. I just thought I was supposed to go to communal prayers on Friday at some point. Thanks for making me aware. But if you miss it or if you pray during Zhuhr during any other day, isn't it always four Raka'ah? By supplicate, do you mean the Subhaan Allah x33, Al-hamdu lillah...
