I have such a hard time trying to capture photos like this because I am always speeding by in a car and they always come out blurred. I find it fascinating that at prayer time, which happens five times a day, the men all stop what they are doing and gather to pray together, no matter where they are. There are so many mosques around the city that many of them walk over to nearby mosques, but if that is not possible, prayers are said out on the sidewalks. Before prayers begin, everyone washes up in the manner prescribed by Islam. One man stands in front facing Mecca and leads the others in prayer. Each prayer time takes about maybe ten minutes tops.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
