A Brief History of Prayer Carpets

Prayer rugs are not universally used by Muslims, nor specifically required in Islam. However, they have become a traditional way for many Muslims to ensure the cleanliness of their place of prayer and to create an isolated space to concentrate in prayer. The designs are often geometric, floral, arabesque, or depict Islamic landmarks such as the Ka'aba in Mecca or Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. They are usually designed so that the rug has a definite "top" and "bottom" -- the bottom is where the worshipper stands, and the top points towards the direction of prayer.When the time for prayer comes, the worshipper lays the rug on the ground, so that the top points towards the direction of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. After prayer, the rug is immediately folded or rolled, and put away for the next use. This ensures that the rug remains clean.
