Muslims pray to the sea after Indonesia quake-tsunami

Muslims pray to the sea after Indonesia quake-tsunamiMuslims prayed facing out to the sea Friday and by crumbling mosques in an Indonesian region pummelled by a quake-tsunami, putting their faith in God to help on the road to recovery. Worshippers wearing skullcaps gathered by the coast in the city of Palu, ground zero of the tragedy in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country, and chanted before sending prayers out to the waters. In the city’s shattered Baiturrahman mosque — whose green dome collapsed into the prayer hall — 62-year-old Adan Abdurazak stood in tears in the place of worship where he had said his Friday prayers every week for the past 15 years.
