the thing with islam is everything is fixed. there is no way you can alter or add anything to it. so i just added another item to my wish list if the time machine were ever invented: i want to go back to a time when the prophet met God and haggled over how many times his ummah should pray in a day. i remember being told the prophet was advised by Moses that he should haggle; the initial order was that we should pray like 50 times a day. but then God made it to five times a day; which is a perfectly fine number in 7th century arabia. but things are different now; in cities where people are always in public places and busy during the day and get stuck in the traffic at dusk (jakarta isn’t mecca) it’s kinda hard to pray five times a day; i mean the best times for praying are at dawn and in the wee hours of the morning; so if God Almighty could make us pray two times a day, that would be great. if He minds, then we need to invent the time machine and make a few changes in the past.
