Indonesian Muslim men pray at Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta, Indonesia, Monday, July 19, 2010. People in the world's most populous Muslim nation have been facing Africa, not Mecca, while praying. Indonesia's highest Islamic body acknowledged Monday it made a mistake when issuing an edict in March saying the holy city in Saudi Arabia was to the country's west. It has since asked followers to shift direction slightly northward during their daily prayers. (AP Photo/Irwin Fedriansyah)
