Thanks, @IsaacMoses. I didn't see it pop up when I was writing my question.

@Adam according to that it wasn't Yuharah, but quite the opposite - looking like a proper mensch. Also, it mentions that many people tuck them in (apparently for neatness) but not entirely - they leave them visible, either by tucking them into their pockets or by wrapping them around their belts before tucking them in, so that they can still be seen and fulfill the verse.

*I know I'm deviating from my adopted transliteration scheme. But my childhood got the best of me in this one. I can't spell Challah any other way.

@Adam Who suggests tucking them in? Mishnah Berurah (8:11, SK 26) harshly condemns the practice. Cf. hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=14170&st=&pgnum=27

comment Safek (doubt) in Halachah - How unsure does one have to be?
This is good. The question always pops into my mind when I feel like I might have said it but I really am not sure, so I go back and say it, and about 50% of the time I get a flashback that, in fact, I definitely did say it. Other times I don't get the flashback but still have the nagging feeling that I probably did say it, and I just feel I'm stuck in a Safek-induced Berachah LeVatalah.

Why was this downvoted? The question specifically asked for comparisons to Islamic prayer!

revised how do Jews pray?
Removed some (unintentionally?) insensitive comments about groups; cleaned up a bit.

comment Coffee Urns on Shabbos
Are you talking about the particular urn, because there is a tube containing water that shows the fill level, or are you talking about any urn, because of concern that some water might be left in the spout?
