Great mkamionka 2021-07-03 2:18

Hi Paul,
This was certainly an adventure.
I like your interior photos and the person in the red T-shirt adds some life to the scene. I bet it would be so much more interesting to photograph the mosque filled with praying people. You could have pretended to be a Muslim and sneak in with the camera :)
Very elegant interior, nice pics.
Great reportage,
M

Default To mkamionka: Mosque visits

Thank you Mariusz,


No possibility to slip in during prayer services.
They recognize a non-Muslim from miles away

On the other hand, I wonder if this mosque is ever full of believers.
From the media I kind of expected Brunei to be a strictly religious country.
It is true in terms of legislation, but the population certainly seemed tolerant to me.

It is desirable for a Muslim to go to the mosque on Friday. However, this is not obligatory. There are many Muslims who only visit the mosque during the Sugar Feast or Feast of Sacrifice. Other Muslims never go to the mosque and choose to practice their faith at home.

I was happy that I could visit the mosque outside of prayer hours.
There are countries such as Morocco and Tunisia where this tolerance absolutely does not exist in contrast to, for example, strictly assumed countries such as Iran where visits of mosques are certainly possible.

Best regards,
Paul
