Prayer (salat)

copy rights Umm Latifa (in Saudi Kingdom)

Prayer in the outskirts of Riyadh. The oldest man in the family (probably he is the one knowing the most Quran by heart) is leading the group in prayer. He is their imam. In the row behind him, we can see - probably his grandchildren and son. They spreaded carpet on the ground and placed a bag - serving as sutra in front of the imam. Nobody is allowed to pass between sutra and imam.
