Having never heard Muslim prayers before, other than the distorted ones through the loudspeakers on the minarets of every mosque, I was at first surprised and then astounded by the beauty of what I heard. I did not hear the words, which I couldn't understand anyway, but only the ephemeral intonations of the soul - ...
