Saudi Arabia provide 'Mobile Mosque ', to ensure that football fans do not miss evening prayers


Mobile Mosque during World Cup match only in Saudi Arabia

It may sounds funny,yet it is shows how serious they are,the Saudi Arabia government to ensure that all people pray, even when there is live broadcast when they watch world cup in a restaurant or cafe,apart at home.

Vastly different in country which claimed themselves as Islamic country,how many Muslims were in Malaysia did their prayers during watching football outside at mamak shop shouted with laughter at the beginning matches of the final round of World Cup that starts at 7:30pm MST?

Thinking back,our country further and further from the true teachings of Islam, only by its name.
