   "Praying together is a good thing. It cements the idea belonging to a movement, to a religion, to an organization, to a community. The result is something very very powerful, even to watch, even for a non-believer or someone from another religion."


   "We carry our physical gestures of prayer in worship. They unify our body, and our mind, and our soul all at the same moment of bowing and touching your head to the ground toward that exact centre. What could be a more powerful symbol of unity."


   It said that while he was in Medina, Muhammad received a revelation instructing those in prayer to face in the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca. Though # the pagan idols, it was still the shrine of Abraham, the first believer in the one true God. But even as the Muslims were praying toward Mecca, their enemies there were rallying a force. Their goal: to wipe out the Muslims.


   Muhammad's people began to gather arms. Though the Muslims prepared as best they could, they were outnumbered and outmatched. They mustered the force of only 313, mostly old men and boys with few weapons, while the approaching Meccans were heavily armed, and 1,000 strong. For years, Muhammad had tried to bring Islam to the people of Mecca peacefully. Now it was the time to fight. The Muslims faced their own tribes, brother fighting brother, son against father. Yet they came armed with a powerful weapon, a passionate belief in their faith. Muhammad's troupes fought with every confidence that God's will was guiding them.


   "They fought three very very bloody battle. At one point, the entire young Muslim community was right on the edge of annihilation.
