Kneeling in Prayer

Istiqlal Mosque, Jakarta, Indonesia. I couldn't believe it...our guide managed to get us access to the top floor of this gorgeous mosque, an area which is usually locked after a more recent suicide. Every Muslim and Indonesian resident I encountered treated me with such kindness and respect. This collection of people was no exception. Hearing them pray and sing in unision is like hearing poetry from heaven. I will be forever grateful for this spiritual experience.
