I want to give my husband a small prayer rug as a gift but can't find anywhere to order one online that isn't on another continent and costs like $20 to ship here. I used to have a small prayer rug I would travel with, which was basically just big enough for my head to rest on while I prayed and I think it would be nice for him to have one he can travel with. The one I had was maybe 12x18 inches. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am a 17 year old Albanian guy who currently lives in Italy. I was brought up in a very irreligious household but my family is made up of both Muslims and Orthodox Christians. Since arriving in Italy I've been doing some thinking and soul searching to pick a religion that sorta feels right and go from there. At the moment my closest friends are Libyan and devoted Muslims and they've been nothing but helpful in this journey. I was leaning towards Islam but i didn't feel as if i was quite there yet, so i decided not to commit and fast for Ramadan. Well now I'm fully sure that Islam is the way for me. We're kinda struggling to make ends meet, and my mom told me yesterday that all she needed was an extra €10 for my baby sister. We live in a Refugee Camp so it's kinda hard. Well today, a Muslim neighbor asked me to accompany him somewhere, and midway decided to stop at a store to get some chocolates and snacks for my sister, the total amounting to €10. This may not seem like something big but it's a lot for me. A clear invitation to follow this path. I want to get in - Is it too late to begin fasting? I would appreciate all your replies. Thanks
