Hi Joy,

I lived in Riyadh for about 2 1/2 years in the 1960s, where the entire work and business day was built around the Islamic prayer schedule. It was very common to see people praying everywhere, from single persons to large groups, in and out of buildings, organized to ad hoc. Like your husband, I never saw anyone using a prayer rug. Whether practices were different in the privacy of homes, I did not know.
