  • But before meeting you, I didn't really know anything, eh?

  • So what are the things about Japan that would make our provide challenges from Muslims living here are visiting here.

  • Okay.

  • First talking about some of the basic requirements.

  • It's praying five times, visiting mosque every Friday, eating whole food, no drinking alcohol, very huge up for females.

  • And in Japan, many off this basic points a quite challenging.

  • So what are you making?

  • I'm making, uh, in view.

  • It doesn't have a name.

  • It's just a bunch of vegetables.

  • And I fry them all together.

  • But it's not traditional Uzbek.

  • You.

  • Is a Muslim okay?

  • And what you guys do for a living for living, we also do.

  • You too will have a channel.

  • She does.

  • YouTube I do you two.

  • That's, uh, what we do for living.

  • It's quite fun.

  • Hello.

  • It's permissible.

  • It means so.

  • How food means food that you can eat.

  • You are permitted to eat.

  • By the way, we're trying to consume less meat for the past three years.

  • Because that's what the prophet peace be upon him did.

  • Not anything except for this.

  • Hello.

  • People believe you can eat any meat except pork.

  • But any animal that haven't been slaughtered or that have been slaughtered for other than God, it would mean even a chicken sheep dif They would all be known halal if they hadn't bean killed in the proper manner.

  • Fish is generally what saves us in most situations.

  • So whenever we cannot find halal food, we usually go to eating fish.

  • So the anything does vegetarian then would be Hello.

  • Yes, that's another safe area that saves us usually almost all meals and inspect star in one pot like you cook in war.

  • So what?

  • Huh?

  • So I usually just have your one dish.

  • If you go and tell those big people give me your food, they will give you this.

  • What is that all?

  • Yes, it does us.

  • Yeah, that's soon.

  • Only the primary problem that we face is a Muslim is to find halal food because Japan is largely a non Muslim country.

  • If I want to get out, I look for Howell restaurants, so sometimes it's quite inconvenient.

  • Work.

  • Three restaurants.

  • Pray your space.

  • So what kind of place is this?

  • This place offers Rahman, which is traditional Japanese food, and you can taste it here without worrying about its ingredients because it's how well sit by And also on the second floor, they have a prayer room.

  • This quarter is a special place for praying.

  • It's very tiny, but better than pussy.

  • Okay, so this place is closed here in Japan.

  • I need to check it all the time.

  • The ingredients.

  • For example.

  • If I wanna buy ready food from a convenience store or some supermarkets, I need to go through the ingredients way I allow in Shin Okubo Station.

  • Very close station is just 25 me dress from here and a lot of hollow shops.

  • And let's try to enter to this one.

  • Uh, excuse me.

  • We're making a video about how all shops in Japan is it OK to film inside the shop.

  • This one's all run that daughter.

  • Okay, thank you.

  • So this is one of the shops way.

  • You can find a lot of color products.

  • There's hello meet as well.

  • It says it's from Brazil.

  • Most of the hell out stuff from Brazil.

  • Yeah, yes.

  • Hello sign.

  • Also, a lot of foreigners come here to shop for different spices that you cannot find in Japanese stores.

  • Different kinds of so so that also can be not hollow in typical Japanese supermarkets if you buy because they they might have alcohol or shortenings.

  • But here you don't have to worry about that.

  • It's a little also.

  • Hello, Arnold.

  • Yeah, I always check for sign.

  • If they don't have sign, I asked the owner or someone who's working there, whether it's hello or not, and some say, Oh, it's chicken, it's hello.

  • I don't trust them because some Muslims think that if it's chicken, if a song as it's not pork, it's hollow.

  • So I tried to find that sign and eats way I can find.

  • I wanted to study in an international university, and when I was searching for universities, I found one in Japan, and that happened to be able to make an issue.

  • Pacific University and because of scholarship, I was able to come here because I wanted to study in Japan, a university.

  • It had nothing to do with religion.

  • I came here and I love the country so much that after graduation I just decided to stay here.

  • And it's become more like my own country to me, where if I go back to Pakistan, the country where I come from, I would be missing.

  • Depend a lot.

  • It is obligatory for all Muslims to pray five times a day before prayer.

  • Every Muslim needs to cleanse themselves and purify their bodies, and that's what we call evolution.

  • The most basics off evolution are that you must wash your hands.

  • You must wash your face, and you must.

  • You must wash your feet before you pray and make sure that you are clean to pray.

  • Now I am allowed to pray, So there's a tradition from the prophet.

  • Peace be upon him, where he says, Every time you wash your hands, every spill, every drop of water, we'll wash your sins.

  • Once you do evolution once you clean your body as long as you don't go to the bottle.

  • It means you still have.

  • Evolution will, though.

  • So it shows the direction off the cab in the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the cube shaped structure towards which every Muslim faces while their pain.

  • And it is the prayer for us.

  • It the time until the answer Prayer is in 50 seconds.

  • Now, in most Muslim houses, there's usually a separate space for people to make evolution before the prayer.

  • When I'm at home, I don't very he job, and I'm usually in, not in motor schools.

  • So when I pray, I used this clothes for praying and it's very convenient.

  • Just put on quickly.

  • Oh, it's a big, big side, but and that it caused my whole body.

  • Then I used the cat.

  • We Muslims always wear a cap on our head, just like the Jews do before praying.

  • So this is the sooner It's not actually mandatory to pray this support directly from God, but this what we prayed so far.

  • He's half the prayer, but it's soon because we do it because the prophet peace be upon him, did it every time before praying.

  • Hey, prayed even more what we're going to pray together.

  • Now it's called five.

  • It's the obligatory in mandatory prayer that God directly ordered us in the garage.

  • And that's why when people pray fun together, they do it in a group more like the hands in the movements off the body will be in unison.

  • I have some handsome, eh?

  • War, much more.

  • So go on.

  • So stuffing along with this, they can't look here.

  • So, uh, five, which is directly ordered for God is finished.

  • Yeah, the symbolic meaning off prostration, which we call Saturday doing such a thing is that you submit to the will of God and the symbolic meaning off leaving the prayer, which is to give greetings to both sides, is there is a understanding Islam that on both shoulders there's two angels who record who are responsible for recording your actions during your life and the inside off the heart.

  • The intentions will be just fine.

  • So you're saying that you don't actually need apparel?

  • That's clean?

  • Yes.

  • So why are you using?

  • You actually don't need this pretty rock.

  • You can pray wherever it's clean to pray.

  • So we used us just because it has become happy to us I mean, from an Islamic perspective, it would be quite incomprehensible.

  • Thio have no time for prayer because time is something that you give is a matter of priority.

  • There's nothing else that's more beloved to God than those prayers, so they have a number one priority.

  • Most people have the idea that a prayer must be create a certain time, but it's more about the movement off the sun in the moon.

  • It's more of an astronomical phenomenon.

  • So when the sun comes to a certain point, it's time that you must pray one prayer.

  • But it doesn't mean that you must create at that moment.

  • For example, if the time for what we call a vote for comes it wants, it can last all the way until five or four, depending on the season.

  • So you have three or four hours to be able to catch that prayer in a place like Japan, when it's time to pray.

  • The midday prayer We always struggled to find a place, and we end up playing on the street we always carry with ourselves.

  • They pray Iraq, we put it, and we pray on top of it.

  • But it's also good news that increasingly, Japan eyes recognizing this need that Muslims had.

  • So they're facilitating.

  • Contrary to expectations off many, there are mosques in Japan.

  • This looks a very regular building, but if you go inside, there is a mosque for wasn't people to pray.

  • And here you can see mustard, which means mosque on the fourth floor, where on other floors, they're different cellphones and other kinds of businesses.

  • But you can enter this room.

  • It's a praying.

  • Okay, so it's not kind of mosque like you usually see because most usually have special architecture design.

  • But this is just a building, and it's used to pray, so we can also call it mosque.

  • I feel very safe, like whenever I see this kind of places, I just enter and pray.

  • I don't look for people to ask permission, because this place is for praying, so I don't have to worry.

  • I can just enter aunt Pray, No one.

  • No one is here.

  • You get more awards if you pray as a group, so I assume that they all come at a certain time.

  • That's why, right now there's no one here.

  • Have you heard about good seats like people try to do O D E S s o the more good deeds you do the better for you, right?

  • And there are also some small actions that you may think that's not something good that you are doing.

  • But for example, smiling to another person is also one, uh, way off.

  • Good.

  • It's for not smiling is okay, but if you smile, it's good.

  • So then you get points.

  • Yeah, I always saw I didn't know the When people are praying, for example, just like I didn't know you were reading the verses of the Koran.

  • Oh, remember, just just the recitation off it is.

  • Is it always the same?

  • Like for the same time of day?

  • No.

  • You can choose any.

  • What happens if you can't remember?

  • There's no way you can't remember the least one, right?

  • I don't know.

  • I forgot.

  • He's on time.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Imagine forgetting something you recite five times a day.

  • That smells nice.

  • You something you have to you have to used what?

  • Yeah.

  • Perfume really will come into the mosque.

  • I did not know that research.

  • It's not a rule.

  • It's not an obligation.

  • But you were encouraged.

  • It's like just like somebody just like you have to wear perfume if you wear perfume and get more so it doesn't have to be some, you know, sort of perfume, but you must smell good.

  • So because you are always thinking like yesterday when the mosques are so crowded, it's like I'm always like this.

  • On Friday prayers wasted like this.

  • There is no not enough space.

  • And when people are touching each other this close, you have to smell good.

  • I see.

  • And we use this usually.

  • What's that?

  • This is special.

  • This is called musk.

  • This is what Muslims is.

  • Yeah, Be one way need to go to the basement like I have.

  • Order is one of the famous places in Tokyo.

  • A lot of tourists come here for shopping, especially electronics, a very popular there.

  • So many stores.

  • And when they come here, it's very good to have such a prayer.

  • Oh, because it's quite inconvenient to pray in the streets.

  • It's very crowded part of Tokyo.

  • So I'm very happy that they have a special place for Muslims to pray.

  • So now there is no one here.

  • Two people can free.

  • Oh, they're more prayer.

  • Martz.

  • I think three people can't fit in some pre praying places or must just so you can see this kind of clothes.

  • This is for way.
