Random Quote: Tolerance: A disbelieving Bedouin urinated in the mosque, and the people rushed to beat him. Allah's Apostle ordered them to leave him alone, let him finish and pour water over the place where he has passed urine. The Prophet then explained to the Bedouin calmly, "This is a place of worship, in it is the worship of God and the reading of Qur'an." After the Bedouin had left, the Prophet then said to his companions, " You have been sent to make things easy (for the people) and you have not been sent to make things difficult for them." (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

As salamu alaikum,

I was wondering, how do you guys explain prayer, dua and dhikr to interested people? I have some friends at school who are very into simple meditation or yoga, as in just sitting down and 'freeing' your mind for a while to relax. As Muslims of course we have duas throughout the entire day, for lots and lots of things, prayer is meant to be relaxed and concentrated, we engage in dhikr - I was trying to think how I could explain this to a more intellectual person? (As in someone who is aware of Muslim prayer but not of the reflection aspect, they just see the ritual).
