He who does not needs to pray!

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Everyday during this month, Muslims around the world spend the daylight hours in a complete fast. During this holy month Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours. As a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-sacrifice, Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. The Arabic word for "fasting" (swam) literally means "to refrain" - and it means not only refraining from food and drink but also from evil actions, thoughts, and words.

 

Found this kid while taking glimpse through the Shaath Gombuj mosque. He was sitting there all the time during the prayer and according to his words he goes there quite often and likes observing the pious souls bowing down to the almighty as he haven't learnt to pray yet.
