The month of prayer, Ramadan, is fast approaching, giving space for contemplation on what prayer is, what it ways to Muslims, and why they practice it.

Prayer is a global language that can be practiced anywhere — regardless of the nation, city, time, or place. In the most unusual and unobtrusive environments, worshippers unchangingly find an opportunity to pray, and they find opportunities to connect to God.

Why do people still pray without all of these years? A straightforward, conventional response may be that people pray considering their parents and families have washed-up so and have instructed them to do so, or considering they believe that God has commanded them to. But this might not be unbearable for many people who are really looking for a increasingly profound and meaningful response.

To derive its meaning from its own definition, we find that the word “aqeemu salaat”, which appears commonly in the Qur’an, ways “to stand,” “to be balanced,” and “to be unwavering.” In other words, prayer is well-nigh remaining resolute in the squatter of challenges, and maintaining sophistication and stillness.

Below are photographs of Egyptians praying in all of their variegated ways:
