Traditional Jews and Muslims dress and pray the same way!  They both crossed their hands when they pray and stood in a row.  They both wore long robes, large skullcaps, and long beards.  Across all of the Muslims lands, Jews were very much the same, because they both followed the Tradition of Abraham: Jews through the lineage of Isaac, Israel, and Moses; and Muslims through Ishmael and Muhammad.
