    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 673/408/H=1433) (1) You can offer. Both should offer salah in a way that muqtadi stands near right shoulder of the Imam a little behind that the front part of the muqtadi's feet is near the Imam's heel. It is also lawful to offer salah on terrace as well. (2) (3) You can ask these questions again after writing your educational qualification. (4) You can supplicate in your heart, do not do it verbally. (5) Do not give it verbally rather in your heart.
