The winner, Jehad Ghazwan from Bahrain, whose photograph portrayed a woman performing an Islamic prayer said: "This photograph was taken at home with the help of my younger sister to post on my Instagram page and to show the beauty behind prayers."

Other captivating images include a throng of worshippers dockside in a port in Indonesia, taken by Indonesian Hendra Permana. The photograph was shot at Sunda Kelapa Harbour in Jakarta. Permana said she was happy to win the competition, because it means she can visit Dubai and be recognised as an international professional photographer.
