Ali Abbas is only ten. As a Muslim boy he has decided to start praying as Muslims do, to get into the habit of performing his Islamic rituals from an early age. But there is a problem with the way he is performing his prayer. Our illustrator Ghazaleh Kamrani has made it visible for us in her drawings.
Ali Abbas’s problem is that he is simply not concentrating on his prayers. And why do we know that?
Looking at image 1, it shows that his eyes are diverted towards the TV and I bet he is listening and concentrating on football rather than his prayers.
Now let’s look at the second image. Although it is better to turn the TV off completely when praying, it seems that Ali Abbas has realised what to do. He is not listening to or concentrating on football but is focusing on his prayers.
Ghazaleh has captured the event so as to explain how the event took place. But she cleverly left some differences in each image.
Now without looking at the answers on the left, try to find five differences Ghazaleh has purposely made between these two images.
