Appropriate clothing for visiting a Mosque

by wgd1903

I was just wondering if it is acceptable for men to wear clean and tidy denim jeans if visiting a mosque. Based on what I have read on-line this seems to be the case but I thought I would check.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Appropriate clothing for visiting a Mosque

Just to assure you further; it would be acceptable to wear a modest pair of denin in a mosque. If you want to be more respectful, then you may just take your shirt out of the pants, however, this is not a rule and you may see people inside the mosque not observing this.

In fact their is no perticular dress code to enter a mosque, except for covering some parts of the body, and largely depends on the culture and open-ness of that area. In some conservative areas, mostly rural and remote, wearing jeans or western clothing may be taken as aggressive but still then there is little chance that one can be prevented to enter a mosque.

Some people find it mandatory to cover their heads, however, this is mostly considered as personal belief/doing, and is not considered a compulsion. However, most people consider covering their heads more respectful even if they do not observe this. In the sub-continent (India et all) a cap-basket is common where one may borrow a cap for prayers.

Bodily cleanliness is regarded as most important while entering a mosque, and every person is responsible theirself. Muslims are prohibited to enter a mosque without having a bath after having intimate activity.

Wearing perfume, as per one's preference, is highly encouraged.

Shoes are not allowed in the prayer area and can be deposited or just put in designated places.

If you are entering a mosque while there are prayere (five times a day), then be as calm as possible. The most offensive thing is to cross from in front of a praying person without having a physcial sepertor between the two. And this may cause verbal reaction.

Mosques are generally serene and quite places, so walking and talking in mild to slow tone is observed.



Travel Tips for Abu Dhabi

Umra trip by Road from Abu Dhabi or Dubai

by JPatel

Hi Friend

Regarding Umra Visa its free from KSA, approach any of agents 2-weeks before travel, further you will be asked for vacination from central hospital.

Take English to Arabic book along with you, as at every point you may need it, further be prepared to have arabic food on way as Indian food is rarely found but you can find Pakastanis hotels at both Makkah & Madinah city.

Border is exactly 358km from Abu Dhabi on rout you find ADNOC fuelling station at average every 50km, It may take 30min each at UAE & Saudi Emigaration & customs clearance.

On Saudi side on entry you find one or two petrol stations then there is 1 bunk every 100km for next 400kms then bunks are available every 10-20kms & even fuel is dam cheap.

Prefer to apply removable abrasive paint on front to avoide damage due to sand storms, it should be easily peeled off once your journey is complete.

It is more advisable to have a friend who can speak arabic & can assist you in driving,

Carry spare tyre, towing belt to pull out of sand dunes, AC overhauled, battery jump wires,

On an average food costs you around 10-15 rials max, UAE currency is readily accepted at every corner of Saudi, you can find many money exchanges in cities but are not proffasinally managed.

For SAFETY I would advise to enter Saudi during Day from UAE, as first strech of 300km road in 2way with no central dividers & lots of heavy trailers are hauling at good speed as there are no radar check on this streach.

For route map & Hotel check on web site.

Happy Journey my Friend,

Even pray for me,

J Patel Cool Green & freely flowing traffic, lots of open space, no conjustions

Skin Moisturizer

by zuyao

Was here for about 3 weeks since late January. The humidity at this time is very low sometimes as low as below 40%. My skin became quite dry and was beginning to crack. Good idea to have a skin moisturizer to keep the skin moist and healthy. Otherwise, your body will feel uncomfortable and itchy all the time.

Abu Dhabi Mall

by Cielo_Algaeed about Abu Dhabi Mall

Just like any other mall, Abu Dhabi Mall houses signature brands of clothes, shoes etc.

Restaurants and coffee shops can also be found here.

A nice place to pass time esp during weekend.

Al Ghazal Express is a new taxi service launched recently. The initial fare in a private taxi starts from Dh2, charging 50 fails for each kilometer traveled. The Al Gazelle Express, however, does offer a competitive fare structure, starting with just Dh2 and Dh1 per kilometer thereafter, during the day. Between the hours of midnight and 6am, the fare shoots up with Dh4 being the initial charge and Dh1 per kilometer thereafter. Currently they are using new Toyota Camry vehicles. The service mainly available by call. However, sometimes you may find it in the front of some places like Abu Dhabi Co-Op or hotels.
