Flight to Dublin…

In Uncategorized on August 9, 2008 at 3:17 pm

There’s no direct flight from Malaysia to Ireland. So, you have to stop for a transit somewhere to catch another connecting flight to Dublin. Normally the transit is at London Heathrow, Paris, Amsterdam or Frankfurt. There will be student officer(s) that will wait for your arrival at the airport. The duration of the flight normally would be around 14 to 16 hours. However, it will be longer if the period of waiting for the connecting flight increases. 

Man…That’s a whole lot of time…What I’m supposed to do sitting that long a plane??

Well. For those who never travelled far using a bus or plane, it sure is a long time. However, the panel screen at the back of seat in front of you will help to keep you accompanied. There are selections of movies, drama series, games etc. But don’t forget your duty as a muslim. The 5 daily solat are compulsory as they always are even when you are floating in the sky. You can use the rukhsah to qasar (shorten), combine (jama’) the prayers and perform the solat at your seat. You can also check for direction of Kaabah with the panel screen in front of your seat. As for the solat time, it is better to based it on the change of day and night compared to the time because you are always moving in the sky (its quite difficult to determine which country you are at) and different country has different time-zone. You might want to ask your friends who went to Wonderful Overseas Weekend (WOW) to explain more if you still have any confusion.
