The video below shows us the many different sides of Niger: the extreme weather, the desert, the tribesmen. What stood out was that the tribesmen that showed the explorer around were punctual in their prayers.
This second pillar of Islam, neglected and/or rejected by some who call themselves “educated” and “busy” in the Anglosphere is completed by these people in the most harsh and unforgiving weather circumstances. In this month of Ramadan, those that have abandoned prayer in totality…let them re-enter Islam, repent and establish the prayer.
This is the second pillar of Islam and one is not classed as a Muslim without it.
