Omar mentions that eating is worship, sleeping, doing anything not forbidden in Islam is worship. Unfortunately, Omar forgot to mention some other Muslim behavioral worship patterns. Here are highlights of some more of Islamic worship events:

Palestinian terror attacks and suicide bombings in Israel have not been included because of their sheer number.

May Allah continue to bless Muslims with the Peace of Islam.
