Eid al-Fitr @ al-Azhar Mosque: Video
Image by modenadude
Forgive the footage, it was so chaotic at the mosque, this is the best I could come up with!
Sofi and I were unsure what time Eid prayer was held in Egypt (I heard people tell me times ranging between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m.) so Sofi and I left her apartment (after I finished watching the Saints game on my laptop there) at around 5:30 a.m., Ramadan time.
We found a taxi relatively quickly (much easier than I thought it would be to find a cab on Eid) and got to al-Azhar at 5:45 a.m. Ramadan time, still a good 20 minutes before the adhan.
So now we know, Eid prayer is roughly 6 a.m. Ramadan time, 7 a.m. real time.
Boy was it packed. Enjoy the video, in 1080p HD filmed with my Canon T2i / 550d
