Latest update: July 23rd, 2012
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.
