This is a large temporary sign on a banner indicating the location of the men’s and women’s prayer rooms in a local mall here in Jeddah. I’m fond of the figures used to distinguish men from women on this sign. The Arabic script below the female figure says “Female Prayer Room” and the script under the male figure says “Male Prayer Room.” Just about every mall here in Saudi Arabia has designated areas where shoppers can wash up and perform prayers. Stores must close for all the five prayer times during the day, and many shops in the mall actually stay closed most of the afternoon instead of opening and closing several times, and then they just stay open until later in the evening.
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.
