The people of the Mohammedan religion are noted for their very peculiar customs, and in this picture we are brought in close contact with a few of the better class and we get an idea of their singular mode of living. In the first scene we see how the women make their toilet, paying strict attention to the covering of their faces. Next is the unique way the men receive their guests, showing their manner of salutation, taking coffee and all smoking the same pipe and drinking from the same cup of wine. After a prolonged conversation, all fall back and have a snooze. The detail of this picture is magnificent, showing the interior of their living rooms, which are most artistically decorated and beautifully furnished in a quaint style.

An excellent record film, depicting the daily life of a Mohammedan, or some phases of it. The photography is good and any one who sees this film will gain a good idea of how a Mohammedan lives.
