    Is this Sri Lanka or the Middle East? Aping the Arabs does not make one a better Muslim.

    Most of our Muslim brothers try to follow our beloved prophet's way. Islam is one for all the Muslims in the world.

    Brother, your knowledge of Islam seem to be very primitive as the Apes as you say. On what basis do you call any human as an Ape. You should first understand the religion before making comments. The above photos depict the correct way of congressional prayer and Islam does not discriminate between an Arab and a Non-Arab. Last Hajj sermon of the Prophet PBUH depicts exactly that.
