    just co's you wear a cap and have a beard doesn't mean they are imitating arabs..all muslims are supposed to do that - learn before you comment

    AKON Sunday, 19 August 2012 10:27 AM

    whats your problem ? psychologically down when you try to compare yourself with a practicing muslim??

    Ali -G Sunday, 19 August 2012 10:16 AM

    Explain what the hell you exactly mean..!! is it wrong praying in open air ??

    ibnu abbdul azeez Sunday, 19 August 2012 10:29 AM

    brothers in islam,wearing islamic dress is to be appriciated other than defaming it,this the dress code of our beloved prophet and we get reward for it.

    let's pray for peace in this Ramadan! Let's sacrifice the animal's to appease Allah! Let's wish Jammaiyatul Firdouse to the Slaughtered Animals!

    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.

    Allah hu akbar !!!

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

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 19 August 2012 08:44 AM

    Wish all the Muslims all over the world "A happy Id-Ul-Fitr" and also wish prosperous and peaceful future.

    My Dear Das... muslims don't imitate ..its their identity..where ever u go in the world .. the leader of the prayers use to where like this.... ---- think before u utter --

    Mifly Sunday, 19 August 2012 06:29 AM

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

    Nero Sunday, 19 August 2012 05:55 AM

    Bottoms up!

    das Sunday, 19 August 2012 05:37 AM
