Prayer in Public in Sauidi Arabia

It's always fascinating to me to see people gathered together for prayer here in Saudi Arabia. While there are mosques every few blocks, many people just pray wherever they happen to be. In business areas, there are designated places where worshippers meet to pray together. 

Both photos in today's post were taken a few years ago before the Coronavirus situation.  Mosques here have been reopened after having been closed for months, but as far as I understand, admission is limited, social distancing measures are in place inside the mosques, and lingering after prayers conclude is not allowed.

We travelled to Morocco several years ago. I found the call to prayer a wonderful sign of a peaceful purpose in the world. I would feel the same about this public areas of prayer.
