Answer to Egypt Quiz #9
These are the Cairo Salah times for November 6, when Muslims perform their daily obligatory prayers.
Prayers are performed each day at dawn (Fajr), midday (Dhuhr), afternoon (Afr), sunset (Maghrib) and night (Isha’a).
From mosques throughout Egypt, a muezzin will summon Muslims at the prescribed times by reciting adhan, the call to prayer, over a loudspeaker.
If they are unable to attend a mosque, devout Egyptian Muslims will lay down a prayer rug, face southeast (toward Mecca), bow down and pray where they are.
