Two Fridays ago, I was sitting under a hot steep tunnel surrounded by some very kind unknown people waiting for jummah salaah (Friday prayers) in Makkah. We didn’t have a mat so they shared theirs with us. The roads were blocked off by 10:00am so we stayed a bit far off from the mosque. The loudspeakers were our only hope to the perfect jummah salaah.
