Tarawih prayer by Persian Sunnis (Birjand/Khorasan)

Ramadhan 1438 / 2017 in Birjand city (southern Khorasan province of Iran) which has a large Sunni population of ethnic Persian Sunnis (Hanafi). The Shalwar Qamis is their traditional clothing just as it is the traditional clothing of Persian/Tajik Sunnis of Afghanistan. Shias in Iran are one of the few nations in the Islamic world that are devoid of any traditional Islamic clothing (the Shia clergy is wears clerical clothing which is for them only, like in a Hindu caste system or the Church where priests only wear specific attire).
