REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Most urban residents take advantage of the school holidays to go to their hometown or to tourist attractions with their families.

For those with far-flung travel goals, do not neglect the five-time prayer obligation. There is no need to worry about being burdened with such obligations given that Islam provides facilities of leniency in the form of combining (jamak) and summarizing (qashar) of the fardhu prayers.
