Twilight Minaret – Ramadan Kareem


At twilight, the mosques around the city of Jeddah begin to light up their minarets, mostly with green lights. The five daily calls to prayer are announced over the loudspeakers placed atop the minarets for all to hear. Most minarets are topped off with the crescent moon, which has become a recognized symbol of Islam. The sighting of the new moons mark the beginning and the end of the month of Ramadan when all Muslims fast during the daylight hours.
RAMADAN KAREEM to all of my Muslim friends around the world.
