This is a story of an Indian Muslim student in USA. One of his Professor declared an extra class that overlapped with Maghrib Prayer time. On top of it it was the month of Ramadan. The Professor was known to be strict. Even then he gathered his courage and asked for a break of five minutes for himself-to break fast and pray.
"Is it necessary?", the Professor asked. "Yes, it is", he said. The Professor declared that the whole class will have ten minutes break.
And All Praise is for Allah All-Pure and Exalted on that.
