Time with God goes into overtime

A Muslim priest has apologised for over-running the normal duration of Friday's midday prayer. Despite receiving many pointed stares at the clock, as well as what can only be described as meaningful throat clearings, Muslim priest Mohammed continued his lecture for an extra two minutes. Many prominent business owners expressed silent outrage, followed by some louder grumbles while leaving the mosque.

Restaurant owner, Mohammed said "I sacrifice my 5 minutes for this weekly prayer, so I can't afford those extra minutes, a minute wasted is a customer lost".

An elderly shoe shop owner, Mohamed commented that "In my day we used to have twice the prayer in half the time, these extra minutes show a blatant disregard for my shoe shop ... Asmals, Cathedral Road, finest shoes for the finest prices."

Not everyone was against the lengthy prayer though. "I work for a company, and the longer I spend in prayer is more time I don't have to be back at the office," said Mohammed, salesman at Mr Price, who was then promptly stoned.

Another mosque regular had another complaint, "I don't mind the going over time, but where is the biryani?" asks Mohamed.
