Last year, on February 11, I was standing next to the main stage in Tahrir Square when the evening call to prayer rang out.
All you could see was a sea of people in lines, using Egyptian flags as prayer mats. When news filtered through to the crowd that Hosni Mubarak, then Egypt's president, had stepped down, people started shouting, saying that nobody could celebrate until prayers had finished.
