Female prayer

by Joanne_192

Hi, maybe you can ex)plain why it is that women pray less ? I have often wondered about this. Thanks

Re: Female prayer

by chizz

Hi there
I may be wrong as I'm not Muslim, but I think many women choose to pray at home, maybe due to family responsibilities.

Re: Female prayer

by doodybee

i don't pray at all

i am a non - beliver

maybe more women see what is really behind the scenes of religion

in my eyes someone invented the idea of "GOD" in whatever version as a means to keep the hoipolloi in check and they were just too uneducated to understand

not the case these days
guess religion just isn't my thing

Re: Female prayer

by Joanne_192

Actually i was referring to someone's description of a mosque. The women's hall was smaller and less decorative. So really I meant Muslim women.

Re: Female prayer

by Donna_in_India

Since Muslim women are not allowed in mosques and you only see the men praying (or going to pray) you assume they pray more than women. I'm not sure that's necessarily the case though.

Re: Female prayer

Hi there
I've been in quite a few mosques as part of tours in Kuwait, Oman, Syria, etc., and women do attend the mosque, but have a separate praying room to the men.

Re: Female prayer

by chizz

Was just looking on the web and it said in Saudi that the men and women pray together in the mosque and in some places the women are slightly separate in another section of the same prayer hall.

Re: Female prayer

Glad to hear there is some intergration in other countries. As far as I know, in India, women are still not allowed in mosques.

Re: Female prayer

Actually women are encouraged to pray at their homes, only men mostly pray at Mosques. Though there is no restriction on women to pray in mosques but religiously its reccomended for them to pray at their homes and thats what they do.

They have to pray as much as males do. Its not like men pray more, they just do it outside in mosques and women do inside their homes.

Travel Tips for Muscat

Colourful flowers

by victorwkf

Although situated in the Middle East, the climate in Oman is suitable for growing some nice plants with colourful flowers. Because of the good water distribution, you can see lots of greenery and some man made lakes in Muscat, especially in the parks.

The Grand Mosque

by TomorrowsAngel

You are allowed to visit the mosque free of charge as long as you are modestly dressed with long sleeves and trousers.
Women can wear: skirts as long as they are kneelength or greater, tops with high necklines, and hair must be covered.

Jet Skiing

by peaceness98

If you go to the Shatti Qurum beach, near Jawharat Al Shatti (near intercontinental hotel) you can rent a jet ski for around RO 10 per hour, you can always bargain the price down.

Rentals are also available from most hotels, including hyatt & intercon. Swimwear, beach shoes, sunglasses

Date Tree Baskets

by peaceness98 about Woven Baskets/Mattresses/Bags/etc

Palm/Date trees products are popular in Muscat- You'll find extremely cute household and decoration items for reasonably cheap prices in Mutrah Souq -Matt
-Gift Bag
- Water bottle holder

-sandals Less than $10

Quick snack at reasonable price

by tamerinho about Al Deyar Restaurant & Cafe

A good hangout, offering a rich menu of various middle eastern mezzas and dishes

they also offer shisha/narghile' (water pipe) for those who are interested.

They play live European soccer, and in fact it is one of the hot spots in town to watch Italian Serie A, Premier League and La Liga games. Tried many things, but I recommend their mezza's especially the cheese rolls.
