Why women do not attend the Jum'a prayer? Are they exempted?

A. Yes. They are exempted.

Q 70: WHY PRAY ONE SAL AH SOON AFTER THE OTHER?

The Muslims have to pray five times a day. But it has been conventional in the Shi'a world
to pray 3 times a day, i.e., in the morning, afternoon (Zuhr + Asr); and at night (Maghrib &
Isha) Why is this so?

A. It is better (and it earns more thawab) to say the five prayers separately; but it is also
allowed to pray 'Asr soon after Zuhr and 'Isha soon after Maghrib. The Shi'as generally
takes advantage of this permission,

Q71: PRAYER OF A MAN WHO ATE "NAJIS" FOOD

Eating Najis food has a penalty of 40 days prayers, isn't it? For a man who is to live in
boarding house where there is a common mess, what will happen? Is it that he will be
penalised 3 (least number of meals a day) x 40 penalties (for each food) X2 (No. of years
he is supposed to be there) X 365 (No. of days in a year), i.e. 3 x 40 x 365 x 2 days
penalty. (One of the traditions says “Go even upto China in search of knowledge”)

A. For your information, this tradition is about the knowledge of religion only. So far as the
eating of Najis food is concerned, it has its own penalty. But it does not mean that you
should neglect your prayer for so many days. It is one thing to say, "Your prayers will not
be rewarded"; and quite another to say, "you did not pray”. Because if you did not pray
then you would be liable to punishment for "not praying", which is one of the most serious
sins in Islam. On the other hand, if you prayed but your prayers were "not accepted" (i.e.
not rewarded) at least you would be immune from the punishment of "not having said your

prayers".
