Salat al Maghreb



Salat al maghreb is the sunset prayer. It is the fourth of five formal daily prayers of our Muslim brothers and sisters. They must face towards the direction of Qibla during salah.

Photos shown above were taken at Al Jahli Fort. Apologies for the quality of pictures. I wasn't able to change the setting of my camera and those were stolen shots. I was walking towards the playground of  Al Jahli Park when I saw this Pakistani man performing the salat al maghreb. In here, it is very common to see people praying in public places especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

Word of the day: Qibla is the direction that should be faced when a Muslim prays during salah as it points towards the direction of Mecca.

RAMADAN KAREEM. Salaam!

  2. Hi dear Misalyn;) we're also experiencing and seeing prayers and breaking fasts all around us here in Khartoum. thanks for the Arabic word Qibla. It's a new one for me. Bless you my friend. Jo PS On my skywatch post tomorrow I have posted the word for "sun" as shemeesh. But cannot find the word for sunrise (or sunset!) If you can help over there tomorrow, I'd be most obliged.
