This Friday prayer was offered in the mosque by Sunni and Shia Muslims together. Which depicted unity amongst the Ummah and respect for each other. The suicidal bombing was carried out by a Saudi citizen and backed by the Extremist ISIS.
People from all the corners of the world condemned this cowardly act of the extremists. The Kuwaitis in fact became more united and strong as a result. The Friday prayers this Friday was attended by Sunni and Shia Muslims together as the security throughout the country was also beefed up, hundreds got arrested from around Kuwait in the pre Friday operation to ensure security.
