.: Masjid Al-Hidayah :.


Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.

I sought shelter here during the recent rainstorm while waiting for my uncle to pick me up. The only thing that bothered me was the women's praying area. It was outside. Having gone there only once, I prefer not to comment further.

It's a Friday.
5.27am Malaysian Time

Insh'Allah they will change the women's are to indoors so the babies don't get sick.

I loved these beautiful pictures and am proud of you Hajar for not going further and denigrating the masjid on Jummah for their lack of a proper women's area. Mash'Allah, I love you.

Hello Hajar! I love these photos. So beautiful! But why is the women's prayer area outside???

I hope this comment makes it through. I can't seem to say much on blogs these days!

Mina & Hajar Zamzam Ismail :: Yes. It is captivating. :)

Lisa :: I'm sure there is a logical reason why it's outside. :) Aww sis~ I love you too. ^^

Coffee Catholic :: Hi Michelle! I clearly have no idea! In truth, I'm still trying to figure it out.

Yeap, it made through. :)

Van Qif :: Reasonable enough. I was there on a Tuesday, and it was raining. :( I'll end it there.

Is this discussion over..hee.. I just read this..
so sis, if its raining, the women cant pray jemaah? Maybe you can send a letter to the mosque committee to suggest some stuff...
May GOD bless you for your efforts.

Beautiful mosque though .... hmmm U mean outside the mosque (women's area) in the open?

Hajar said...

Ummi's Blog :: Nah, a discussion is never over, and we prayed jema'ah. :)

I was considering on it, but it was my first time there. Until I get my facts right i.e. on the women's prayer area situation, I won't be taking any action on it. Thanks sis. :)

Ms.Unique :: Outside as in, in the inner courtyard. Typically, most of the mosques I frequent to here have a separate section for women either they're placed on the 2nd floor, or in the back corner of the mosque.

Mashallah what a beautiful Masjid, May Allah make it abaad (full of worshippers).

You know I c an remember many moons ago I went on a trip to india and pakistan, a lot of the masjid I went too didn't even have four walls it was sometimes just like a court yard.

Nowadays the masjids are really "Fabulous."

Nowadays some elders prefer women to offer salaah @ home as it prevents intermingling of sexes and sometimes where the entrances aren't separate etc it means their is touching of body parts during the hussle and bussle of entering and leaving the masjid.

Hajar said...

Typically, the mosques here have similar structures. And yes, they are "fabulous".

The exact thought is applied here, where one rarely see women participating in jema'ah.
