Day 318: Line of Shoes

That tell-tale line of shoes: you know that a large white sheet and rows of jaanamaaz are not too far off. Maybe you'll even stumble upon rows of friends and family standing shoulder to shoulder, heads bowed, prayers of thankfulness, strength, and well-wishes for loved ones on their barely-moving lips.

When it comes to prayer, the lines are made so fast and are done in near-complete unison. What would happen if all Pakistanis practiced what they preached, and stood in unity and/or harmony with one another in all aspects of their lives? Would Pakistan be in the situation it is in now, if its "leaders" stood true to the religion they claim?

Can we (or even should we) be like a line of shoes, each and every pair different because of its physical appearance and user experience yet lined up in unison all the same?
