Join Ziyad as he learns ten benefits from the most precious gift from God...prayer. While all the animals in the jungle are busy preparing for a party, Ziyad asks each one of them what prayer does for them. They mention calmness, togetherness, and hope just to name a few. Before the party starts, Ziyad and his friends and family gather for Maghreb prayer, reminding each one that even though their party awaits, it is so important to reap the benefits of their daily prayers.
