As I wandered through the dense residential area, I came to the mosque I had visited before. This was the mosque where the Friday mass prayer was being held. Inside the mosque, the mass prayer was still going on, and the voices of the preachers were echoing outside the mosque.
I don't know how long a regular mass prayer service lasts, so I don't know if the service here was a long one or not. At least, it seemed to be longer than a talk by the principal of an elementary or junior high school or a boring speech by the boss at a wedding. The content of the speech was also about religion, so there was a high possibility that it would not be something that young people would enjoy listening to. When I glanced inside, I saw that most of the people listening to the speeches were old men, and there were not many young people in the audience, confirming my guess.
I wondered where the young people and children were, near the entrance or outside. It's like taking a seat near the entrance to a university class you have no interest in. In the photo, the boys who were left outside were happily chatting away from the preaching going on inside. I guess they wouldn't have come to the mosque itself if they weren't interested at all.
