Abbas Anwar Raoof al Taiee, Shia, prays at his home in the Karada neighborhood of Baghdad, Iraq on Feb. 8, 2007. Although his family is mixed he prefers to live in Karada, among Shia. Al Taiee is an engineering student at Baghdad University. One distinctive difference between Shia and Sunni Muslims is the way in which they pray. Shia pray with their arms at their side while Sunnis pray with their hands folded.
