    Eid is when Muslims all over the globe feast on the first day of (Shawwal)the month that follows the holy month of Ramadan.
    This picture was taken from my house roof top,where we could see the fireworks easily from the corniche.
    My nephews who were visiting from Riyadh were really excited about this........because we didn`t have to get stuck in traffic to see such a scene ;-)

    PHOTO : PRAYING ON THE DESERT.


    When ever called for praying, all people (Muslim & Muslimah) will stop their journey and activities to do something which is very important
    in their life...PRAYING. How good the Muslim, if he/she left the praying purposely, the faith easily shacking. They are doing five times a day and night. The praying time will follow the local praying schedule and table....sunrise and sunset at one location, will give an indications to someone about the local prayring time, even he/she didn't heard the voice of 'Muazin/Bilal' from the mosque. The praying time indirectly teaching each Muslim the Time Management and control his/her daily activities.

    While Tony was still with me the two of us decided to take a trip to Taif. Along the way from Jiddah their is a highway that is clearly marked 'Muslims Only'. Non-Muslims had to travel the long way, which completely bypasses Mecca. This photo is a little dark but if you look closely you can read the sign.
