733 Folding Non folding of hands 1.During one of the prayers, the Prophet was ordered to un-fold his hands to reveal the hypocrytes.

My question: Did the Prophet ever start folding his hands in the prayers? If not, who re-introduced the folding of the hands.

2. Sometimes when I am travelling, I visit Ahle Sunnat mosque for Friday prayers. Do I need to fold the hands to mantain the unity and discipline of the prayer.

Your prompt reply will be highly appreciated.

759 missed prayers Salam
If a person missed prayers during his days of ignorance, must he repay all these prayers FIRST before doing other prayers such as the Night prayers? Will his Night prayers carry any merit if he performed them even though he has not finished repaying his Obligatory prayers? I would appreciate it if you can quote some hadiths regarding this matter. Thank you

When traveling, what is better pray qatar (shortened prayer) at its specific (fadilla time) or to wait till home if it can be prayed in its time without being qadha but in full?

789 Acceptance of Prayers As Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmutullah Wa Barakatu,

I have been a Muslim for two years now and I have a hard time with the rules concerning foods. I recently had some Turkey Ham and did not research the company to see if it was halal. I was just told that if you consume haram meats that your prayers/supplications will not be answered for 40 days. I thought that only applied to alcohol, drugs, gambling, etc. If I knew that my prayers/supplications wouldn't be answered for 40 days I would have definitely reconsidered eating that meat. My questions are:

1. Do I fall into the category of Ignorant?
2. Were my prayers/supplications not accepted?
3. Do I need to make up my prayers for the 40 days?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Jazakallah Khair
