This was filmed at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. I was in awe of the natural beauty at this park. I had never seen anything like it and I felt that we had been transported to another world. My husband and I are muslims, and as sunset approached it was time for the evening prayer. Typically, when a muslim prays alone they do not recite the call to prayer. However, hearing the recitation aloud helped us to reflect on the inspiring scenery. Some muslims also believe that when you pray in different locations across the world, those parts of the earth will supplicate for or vouch for you when you are receiving your final judgement.
