Afghan Muslims

The Afghan who hasn’t missed prayer at the Prophet’s Mosque for 37 years

Source : Al Arabiya | 21 Jan 2014

An Afghan national has set an example of piety by never missing one single prayer behind the imam of the Prophet’s Mosque.

Haji Muhammad has become very popular in Saudi Arabia's Madinah because for a quarter of a century he has appeared on Saudi TV wearing the same black turban while standing on the right side of the first line behind the imam.

He told a Makkah-based daily that he arrived in the Kingdom when he was 19.

He has been working as a plumber for 37 years and only traveled once to Afghanistan.
