Pause. We gotta pray

Time would be wasted on prayer.  After the prayer finishes, the momentum of the basketball game, video game played, even the emotional momentum we have when watching films, would get interrupted for 5-10 minutes of bullshit where a man in front mumbles Arabic and we have to follow his lead.
