Day Questions

Why cannot we eat pork?

We cannot eat pork because of the express prohibition of it in the Holy Quran: “Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swine flesh…” (The Holy Quran 5:3).

For my work I sometimes have to travel to various far cities. Sometimes it's less than 10 days a month, and other times it's more than 10 days, and I don't know at the start of the month how many days a month I'll be working outside the city I live in. I always go back to my home after work to sleep. My question is how should I read my Prayers, full or shortened?

Your obligation is to offer shortened prayers, but if the number of days you are travelling become greater than the days of stay in your home town, then you should offer full prayers while travelling. If you stayed in your town, or any other town for more than ten days, and then started to be a frequent traveller – as explained – then you should offer shortened prayers for the first travel and then continue afterwards offering full prayers.
