Jul 4th 2014 at 4:59 AM

It is not uncommon to find Islamic prayer mats or rugs in the house of a Muslim. The traditional, exquisite pieces of woven art forms are prominently used by Muslims while performing their daily prayer rituals. Islamic followers are generally seen bowing, kneeling and prostrating on these traditional, embroidered prayer rugs when they offer their prayers before God. Usually, there is no norm requiring Islamic worshippers to use prayer mats or rugs but the only requirement is to bow down in humility before the almighty in a neat and clean area. However, prayer rugs have become an integral part of the praying manner for many Muslims to ensure the cleanliness of their place of worship.

Islamic prayer rugs are usually available as individual-sized mats - about one meter long and enough for a single person to fit in comfortably be it in a kneeling down or prostrating position when offering their prayers to the almighty. These mats generally come in different varieties and vibrant colors, ranging from simple, monochromatic colors or combination of two hues. The mix of different colors often makes the embroidered pieces of oriental mats or prayer carpets look more strikingly beautiful. The markets are flooded with extensive variety of colorful, embroidered intricate pieces of woven art and finding the perfect one among them is not too tough.

Hand-woven, embroidered pieces of Islamic prayer rugs are simply masterpieces to posses and come in solid colors. You can also go for the factory-produced versions found quite commonly in souks and busy market places or 'bazaars' throughout the Muslim world. The modern rugs used for performing Islamic prayer rituals often come embellished with multi-hued stone works and bright sparkling intricate pieces of threads interwoven to give the rugs a glittering appearance. Shoppers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing well-adorned and exquisitely designed as well as intricately woven pieces of Islamic prayer rugs.
