WATCH: Rashid Khan offers Namaaz prayers ahead of 2nd ODI against Ireland

The 19 year old was spotted on his knees praying while the rest of the team were practicing ahead of the 2nd ODI against Ireland.

Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and engage in the spiritual reflection of God, is one of the most easily identifiable aspects of the religion. Fasting, which is typically the avoidance of food and/or drink, is part of most world religions. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with the testimony of faith, prayer, charitable giving, and making a pilgrimage to Mecca.

Ramadan is not just the month of fasting, but also of prayers. Each prayer includes a series of movements, supplications, and recitations from the Quran, Islam’s holy book, in its original Arabic. Praying five times a day is considered the second most important of Islam’s five pillars. The first prayer, called “Fajr” is performed before sunrise; the second prayer, “Thuhr” comes just after noon; the third prayer, “Asr,” arrives during mid-afternoon; the fourth prayer, “Maghrib,” is just after sunset; and the last prayer, “Isha,” is performed at night.

Afghanistan spin sensation Rashid Khan was spotted offering his namaaz prayers during the holy month of Ramadan ahead of the 2nd ODI against Ireland at Belfast. The 20 year old was on his knees by the side of the ground offering the namaz prayers while the other cricketers could be seen inside the ground, getting ready for the match. Rashid had his jersey on as he would be required to get ready for the match. The video of Rashid Khan offering his namaz prayers has gone viral on the internet has been winning hearts of fans and cricket pundits across the world.
