Oman – Religion

Minaret, Oman
Minaret, Oman

Oman is located in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and it’s an Arab country. Islam is the main religion, but there is also a small minority of Christians or Hindus.

So no wonder you find in Oman many mosques. I very liked this white-green minaret together with rocks. Minaret literally means lighthouse, and it’s traditionally used for the Muslim call to prayer.

Oman jest położony w południowo-wschodniej części Półwyspu Arabskiego, nad Morzem Arabskim. Główną religią Omanu jest oczywiście Islam, jednak kilka procent mieszkańców wyznaje chrześcijaństwo lub hinduizm.

Nie dziwi więc nikogo ilość meczetów w Omanie. Bardzo mi się spodobał ten biało-zielony minaret na tle “rdzawych” skał. Minaret w dosłownym tłumaczeniu oznacza latarnię morską; jest to wysoka wieża, z której nawołuje się wiernych na modlitwę.

    1. hard to say, as a tourist it was ok; but some people may be a second (working) class… I have the impression there is better than in UAE…

  1. I’ve visited a few Muslim countries in North Africa,, and I found.d the call to prayer quite a soothing sound, especially at night – when it can verge on haunting, as someone has already said. I also found the different Muslim countries to be quite different in their approach to things like the status of, and attitude to, women. Lovely shot of the minaret.

    1. Thank you for your impressions! That’s often a different world for us, isn’t it?
