Group Prayer on the Street

About 300,000 Muslims came to Dhaka at Bangladesh from everywhere to attend the annual worship event in January 2020, just before Covid-19 being known to the public. As the reserved field could not contain all, many Muslims pray right on the street or even above their cars. During prayer session, I was much touched by seeing all the people standing firmly in quiet to pray for peace and then bowing in sync.
