Five times a day, Muslims stop whatever they are doing – like sleeping, shopping, working, or watching TV – to pray. Shops and restaurants close. Here several women pray in a designated area in a mall where all stores have closed for prayers. Prayer mats or rugs are provided for them to use. Any men shoppers or workers have left the mall to walk across the street to pray in a nearby mosque. Women do not usually go very often to mosques for prayers. Many malls are equipped with private prayer rooms, separate ones for both men and women.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
