    Rare but not unheard of, they visited my school when I was around eight, gave me a scarf which is a bit faded now but gets plenty of use.

    People offering me scarfs and shiny things usually ends in high-jinks and heartbreak...I need to watch that.
    Nice tactics - coming all the way to London to get supporters :tongue:

    I'm one to talk though, I support the other team in Liverpool and I'm from London too.

    I think shes referring to boys. :p:

    Taraweeh prayers are extra prayers that muslims perform during the month of Ramadhan. These prayers are performed at night time, after the Isha salah(obligatory prayer).

    I'm guessing you're Shia since you're Persian. Shias don't believe in Taraweeh so that probably explains why you don't know about it.

    It's a long prayer after Isha which lasts for around 1 and a half hours and consists of 20 raka'ahs.

    it is an islamic calender month in which all muslims observe fast during the daylight hours.
    it is also the month the holy koran was sent down to earth.
    ramadan is one of the 5 pillars of islam and is oblgatory to all muslims
    it is a very special ocassions because you know all the people you meet are in the same boat as you,it brings the whole community together.
