Happy Ramadan

100,000 Muslims just completed their Friday prayers on the first day of Ramadan on the Temple Mount – without any reports of violence, attacks, or rioting on either the Temple Mount or in the Old City of Jerusalem.

During the Ramadan holiday, observant Muslims fast during the day, and hold festive family meals in the evening going late into the night. In Israel the evening celebrations are often accompanied by fireworks displays.

We want to wish all our Muslim readers a happy and peaceful Ramadan.

 

Update: We just received this picture from Friday.

In response to the comments left, as can be seen in the photo, prayer is faced away from the location of the Jewish Temple and the Dome of the Rock.

  1. You could have chosen a better picture, can oyu not treat us with respect even when we are praying/.

  2. Stephen Leavitt says:

    This is the picture we had from the Temple Mount on Friday.

  3. Please don't treat us like fools. your picture appears to have been taken with a cynical plan. You could have waited just a few seconds and the picture would have been more dignified.

  4. Jameel R. says:

    Jeff: This picture was taken from the Dome of the Rock, which is also Islam's 3rd holiest site. Why do you think the photo is cynical? This is the exact same view the Dome of the Rock gets 5 times a day. What's wrong with it?
