A lot of my relatives and friends ask me what’s my favorite place in UAE or which place do I like the most in here. So, today I decided to post about it.
It’s their prayer halls.
When I was back in the Philippines, I never had a reason to pray in a different place since we had a masjid very close to my home (also I’m just at home all the time). So I never really had so much experience in going to prayer halls in malls or similar places.
However here whenever I have to go out for home duties I am at ease to know that the place I am about to go will not deprive me of my prayer and that I won’t have any reason to delay it as well.
Subhan’Allah, I am telling you this country keeps every prayer hall they have in the most beautiful way of maintenance in regards to cleanliness and odor.
My favorite is the one in Mega Mall in Sharjah (because it is the only mall I go here for grocery). You will truly appreciate how much effort they give in keeping these places clean and tidy. These places, they make you want to stay and just read the Qur’an and contemplate, such are the houses of Allah. Allahu’akbar.
It is so heartwarming too how people who keep them clean as soon as they see you they greet you with salaam and a beautiful smile and assist you in every way possible. – and what amazes me further is that you will see every kind of muslimah there, one who doesn’t wear hijab but prays, one who is old but prays, one who is with kids but prays, one who wears tight jeans but prays (the prayer halls provide prayer clothes as seen in the photo for the convenience of the people who want to pray), one who wears make up but prays – wallah who are we to judge people. subhan’Allah.
Every woman is just amazingly beautiful especially when they have imaan and every visit to these places reminds me of how beautiful my religion is. Alhamdulillah.
P.S. This photo was taken in another mall (not at Mega Mall), but one of the best. Ma sha Allah.
