That man is not worshipping the sun.
He’s laying live branches yo. One with leaves, to begin constructing the ceiling and roof of the subsequent floor of that lived in house.
On top of which, mud will be laid. Left to be dried. Then more layers of mud for refinement. Before a sealed layer made of limestone and cement and not white sugar (because I’ve never seen ants crawling about – so who knows).
Depending on the finishing the owner chooses, one of the few outcomes will mean the branches left partially or fully visible within the ceiling – as many visitors observe in the narrow Seclusion Room of Imam al Haddad located between his mosque and home.
Construction workers tend to work immediately after dawn prayers at the mosque until an hour after mid day prayer is called.
Breakfast is dense brown bread baked in a clay oven eaten with beans or stew, with red tea. Served at around 9am and paid for on top of their daily wages.
More so before than now, each brick laid or passed to a colleague, or a distinctive action made while at work, will be accompanied by an audible proclamation.
Pass brick to a colleague, and says – ‘Allahumma solli alaih.’
Brick received from a colleague, and says – ‘Sollu ala Muhammad.’
Brick laid down, and says – ‘Sollu alan-Nabiy.’
I was told the similar is the case by the women when cooking at home.
