The old mosque at Bidiyah, Fujairah

The mosque at Bidiyah is the oldest in the UAE and is open for non-Muslims to visit, which is not usually the case in this part of the world. It was restored quite recently.

Afraz tells me: The people in foreground are wearing Shalwar Kameez, the traditional dress of Pakistan which implies that they are from Pakistan :)

Whilst Ahmed tells me that Arabs prefer to call a mosque a Mesjid, meaning place of prostration. Green is a colour often associatde with Islam, being the colour of the silk robes we will wear when we are in Paradise.
