Muslims are required to pray five times a day. These times are sunrise, noontime, afternoon, sunset, and nightfall. It is likely that at least one of these times will fall during the school hours. Please check with your school administrator and find a quiet place that the student can pray at the proper times---and americans are not allowed to pray??? This won`t do!
The times of prayer fluctuate throughout the year depending on the length of day light hours. The religion of Islam does not permit the unnecessary mixing of males and females, except among close family members. While this is generally not a problem in the primary grades, it becomes one later.
