Just after Fajr. The adhaan was simply amazing. It touched the heart.

Just after Fajr. The adhaan was simply amazing. It touched the heart. I wanted to pray behind Sheikh Shuraim (my fave) or Sheikh Sudais, or Sheikh Maher, but it was none of these guys. Sheikh Saleh Al Talib led the prayers and did an amazing job, masha Allah!

Another shot inside the Grand Mosque. I loved the mornings.
