    Background: The Shah Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, which is still under construction and will be the largest mosque in the world when finished, was the scene today of prayers offered by the Foreign Ministers and delegates attending the Islamic Summit Conference as well as Pakistan's military ruler, General Zia ul Haq. Friday is, of course, the Muslim sabbath and mosque services on this day are held to be special. Can't think of anything else to say about the subject, so suggest waffle on about the summit in general.
