And the Others Sleep

(Location : An Airport in UK) The immigration lady does not allow the Jama-at to leave. The leader (ameer) has already tried contacts that can put a kind word for them. A colleague asks the lady why is she so indulgent. She tells that the moment I allow them to leave they will rush with their water goblets. They will wash their hands and faces and perform ablutions. Then they will all sit down with a magic book. One of them will read. And others will sleep.
