Sultan Qaboos Masjid, the largest mosque in Salalah, is located in City Center. It’s a huge masjid and a very nice architectural composition. The prayer hall is wonderfully decorated with chandeliers, green carpet and wall patterns and many airconditions are installed. It has many places to do wadu (abulation).
The largest congregation is at the weekly Friday prayer at this mosque. The mosque is named after the sultan of Oman, sultan Qaboos.
Non Muslims can also visit the mosque, but not at the time of prayer.
If you are offering Friday prayer, following are the tips:
1. As a lot of people will be offering, parking would be an issue. Try to come earlier, so that you can find a good parking. Also you can park the car outside the mosque, as it will be easier to park and take out the car after prayer.
2. The prayer starting time is between 12:15 pm to 12:45 pm depending on the season.
3. Chairs are available for the elderly people and those who want chair for offering prayer.
