I chose this artifact because this object is important to me because I use it to pray. The praying mat is from Yemen. I brought this object to school because my teacher told me to bring an artifact so I brought a praying mat. I got the object from my Mom and Dad. They gave me this object because they also used it in Yemen when they lived there and also in America now. I also learned that you have to read the Quran to pray because the words you read, you say when you pray. When I was nine years old, my dad told me it's time for me to start praying. When we started doing immigration unit it put a lot of meaning and I started to using it more. When we never started immigration I never used it that much. In our tradition, Eid, we wake up early and go to the Mosque to pray. As a family, we go to pray near the ocean. When were are done with all the prayers, we go somewhere like a store or a restaurant. The fun part is we get money from our parents.
