Before praying, every Muslim must perform ritual ablution. Hands, mouth, nose, face, forearms, head, neck, ears, feet and ankles must be washed in clean running water and this is why you will always see a small toilet block and washing sinks outside a mosque. In the old days in the desert where there was no water then sand would suffice but now most of my Muslim offroading friends use bottled water for this purpose
Today’s mosque is located in Wadi Khutwa, Oman
Wishing all our Muslim friends “Ramadan Kareem”. May this Holy Month be a blessed one for you and your families.
