Friday prayer, Ramadan the 26th

I thought this image was absolutely beautiful, it really says a lot for those who are familiar with the Islamic month of "Ramadan". My Mother in law sits waiting for the Friday prayers to begin in what would usually be a restaurant packed with people trying to rush and eat as much as they can before going downstairs to perforn the Friday prayers. The kitchen is shut, all trays are empty, yet everyone still awaits the prayer in 40 plus degree weather. It's really nice to share the same holiday, hunger, and faith, with Millions around the world. Ramadan Mubarak once again and may the blessings of Allah be upon us on Laylat al Qadr.
