Make a beautiful replica of the intricate designs found on Muslim prayer mats.
Muslims engage in the communal prayer ritual (Salah) five times a day. They are called to pray at dawn, mid-day, afternoon, after sunset, and at night. Besides standing, you bow and touch the ground with your forehead. Prayers are said facing towards Mecca, considered to be the first house of worship.
While Muslims believe that it is best to pray within a mosque, prayers may take place anywhere that is clean, dignified, and large enough to make the worship movements.
A tradition of luxurious prayer rugs may have started with a humble rattan mat. Many prayer rugs are woven in the Persian rug tradition, although they are smaller in size. The design often is not symmetrical but has a direction. In addition to Islamic designs there are often flowers (representing paradise) in the design.
