Join Dr. George Saliba, professor of Arabic and Islamic science at Columbia University, for a talk focused on the ritual of Islamic prayers (which believers have to perform five times a day) and the fact that those prayers are all defined by the interplay between light and shadows. From the dawn prayer, before sunrise, to the dusk prayer, before the stars become visible, as well as the noon and afternoon prayers, which are defined by the length of shadows on the ground, light and shadows play a crucial role in determining the times of these prayers.
