Do You Really Believe This?

Via Babnet-In his recent biography by Riza Khan, Prince Al Waleed Ben Talal claims that one day he figured out that he didn't pray for three months! To this point nothing seems bizarre or unusual given the Prince's hectic life. What intrigues me is the fact that Prince Al Waleed decided to catch up and perform all the missed prayers (450 prayers, 1530 rakaas ( kneeling)) just in one night and without interruption! (more in french).

This is impossible of course. One day= Sob7 (2 rakkas), dhor (4), 3asr(4), moghreb(3) et 3cha (4).The total would be 17 rakkas. Knowing that one rakaa is fat7a+soura+bending and sob7an allah+ knelling (sajda), that makes an a minimum of 2 mn. 2*17*90=3060 mn=51 h = 2 days and 3 hours and that is without interruption. So I can't believe it, and it is not a smart lie :-)

People obssessed by religion are usually big lyers
