I love the internet.
The second of these questions occurred to me on the subway last night (I was listening to an excellent Hajj-related podcast from the BBC archive). Thanks to the indescribeable wonder that is the internet, I have at least one answer to my question.
- In the event of deep space travel, in which direction should a Muslim pray?
- If the event of a Muslim living her entire life in outer space, is she required to perform the Hajj (traditional one-in-a-lifetime visit to Mecca & Medina)?
- For a Muslim living in a distant solar system, how is Ramadan determined?
