The Beauty of Prayer
This is a photo I shot right after the completion of my sister’s nikah, or Islamic marriage, while she was making a supplication to God. Although it seems like such a simple action, it is so valuable for every Muslim. It is simply raising your hands to ask your wishes from God, to pray for yourself and everyone around you. In essence it’s a simple action, but there is so much beauty involved. It is form of a connection one can have with God by praying and making dua, or supplication. It is especially important for Muslims to continue making dua during the last few nights of Ramadan. For Muslims, Ramadan is a time for spiritual connection with God, and self reflection. And what better way to both assess yourself and connect with God than by simply raising your hands and asking. Muslims believe that God is the Most Merciful, and what better way to ask for his mercy than to raise your hands in his honor and ask.
