MAN MAKES TIME FOR PRAYERS DESPITE BUSY SCHEDULE & NO PRAYER TOOLS

I was passing a void deck when I saw that rare sight - of a Muslim praying at a void deck with the bare essentials; just himself. No songkok. No sejadah (prayer mat). No "proper" clothing. I guess the man must have missed the congregation but nonetheless performed the early afternoon prayer by himself. I guess again that he must be hard-pressed for time. No matter under what condition, it is good to know that he makes time to give thanks to the Almighty.

MAN KENA SAMAN FOR PARKING OUTSIDE MOSQUE DURING PRAYERS

On 28th June 2014, I went to Ar-Raudhah Mosque located along Bukit Batok East Avenue 2 for 'terawih' prayers. I parked my vehicle along Bukit Batok East Avenue 2 like many others did. The prayers ended late on that day as it was the first day of 'terawih' prayers for Muslims around the world and the Singapore Islamic religious leader, the Mufti, was there to give a pre-Ramadhan sermon.

Malays have Special Parking Rights?

On the afternoon of 10 January 2014 between 1.15pm- 1.30pm, I parked my car at Geylang road between Lorong 30 to 32, and left my car to run some quick errands. When I returned, I received a summon ticket for parking along a double yellow line. I am aware that it is an offence to park along a double yellow line, and I accept that I will have to pay for the parking offence.
