Rewrite DB::raw() query to simple DB::table()

I have a

DB::raw()
query in Laravel 5.3.

One of
WHERE
clauses is
AND TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, profiles.dob, CURDATE()) >= '$min_age'
. Here I'm checking if user's year of birth is greater or equal to a certain number (user age).

How can I rewrite this clause using
DB::table()
without
DB::raw()
, if possible?

DB::select(
DB::raw(
"SELECT profiles.dob, profiles.city, profiles.id, users.username, photos.photo "
. "FROM profiles INNER JOIN users ON profiles.id = users.id "
. "LEFT JOIN photos ON profiles.id = photos.profile_id "
. "WHERE users.active = 1 "
. "AND profiles.income >= '$seekingIncome' "
. "AND profiles.religion IN ('$seekingReligion') "
. "AND TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, profiles.dob, CURDATE()) >= '$min_age' "
. "AND TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, profiles.dob, CURDATE()) <= '$max_age' "
. "GROUP BY profiles.id"
));


This is simplified version...

Answer

Looking at your query, this should be work:

DB::table('profiles')
->select('profiles.dob', 'profiles.city', 'profiles.id', 'users.username', 'photos.photo')
->join('users','profiles.id','=','users.id')
->leftJoin('photos'.'profiles.id','=','photos.profile_id')
->where('users.active',1)
->where('profiles.income','>=',$seekingIncome)
->whereIn('profiles.religion', $seekingReligion)
->whereRaw('TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, profiles.dob, CURDATE()) >= "?"',[$min_age])
->whereRaw('TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, profiles.dob, CURDATE()) <= "?"',[$max_age])
->groupBy('profiles.id')
->get();
