Visiting a Mosque-Dos and don’ts

  • Don’t enter a mosque during prayer times.

  • Dress modestly. Shoulders and knees should be covered.

  • Women should cover their hair.

  • Remove your shoes before entering a mosque. You either leave them outside or carry them in a bag.

  • Don’t eat inside a mosque.

  • Make as little noise as possible, and preferably switch off your mobile phones.

  • Even outside prayer times, don’t disturb worshippers who may be praying. Don’t stand close to them or walk in front of them.

  • Taking pictures or shooting video footage inside a mosque is allowed, but don’t point your camera at people praying or at believers in their ablution process outside a mosque.
