400 Muslims

More than 400 Muslims line up in a massive formation for “Salat el Maghreb,” the fourth of five daily prayers in Islam, during Ramadan in Doha, Qatar, Aug. 25, 2009. “Iftar,” is in Arabic word referring to the light meal Muslims eat after sunset during the holy month. After terminating their daily fast with dates, milk, water and tea, the men lined up in a massive formation. Shoes removed, each Muslim stooped down in submission to God while facing Mecca. Three cycles of worship were carried out as a devoted community. “Salat el maghreb” is the fourth of five daily prayers in Islam; it’s observed right after sunset.
