    Re: Which prayer mat for you prefer?

    I guess the last would be least distrancting but I'd still prefer a plain blanket over it bc it would mess with my khushoo

    A and C are both nice. If I have to choose one, I'd pick C.

    I don't get distracted by prayer mats, it's my own wandering thoughts that's the problem.

    Re: Which prayer mat for you prefer?

    Was about to say none have anything resembling faces/figures, so they all seem fine, but not sure about B (even though it looks nice).

    A and C less distracting.

    Why not sure about B? Just the colour or something else off-putting?

    I didn't want to get specific but B looks like there's a sinister little bearded character wearing a blue cardigan and blue hat, with arms folded at the chest.

    No, I'm glad you got specific as, I wouldn't like to buy that one now you noticed it.

    I caught the other thread above your post too.
    Just awful.

    The plain ones are the best Alhamdulillah.

    Yup, once I had a prayer mat with lots of six-pointed stars, and a friend once found a tiny buddah in the place of sujood.

    go for mat C, looks like less patterns to distract you

    or you could just get a plain one instead
    Surah Taha, Verse 69:

    وَأَلْقِ مَا فِي يَمِينِكَ تَلْقَفْ مَا صَنَعُوا إِنَّمَا صَنَعُوا كَيْدُ سَاحِرٍ وَلَا يُفْلِحُ السَّاحِرُ حَيْثُ أَتَىٰ

    "And throw that which is in your right hand! It will swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician's trick,
    and the magician will never be successful, no matter whatever amount (of skill) he may attain."

    Don't see why they have to be decorated so fancy

    I like A and C, A material seems thicker and less rough on skin so A for me. Yes there's subliminal.images planted on some prayer mat these days.

    Re: Which prayer mat for you prefer?

    Afaik the sunnah is to use a mat made from something from the earth still in a raw state. So a reed or straw mat is what I would want but no one seems to want to sell them. I had to buy a beach mat which just doesn't stand up to that kind of wear and has shredded all over my floor.

    There was something on iqra TV a few years ago where Khair Foundation (?) had a factory where they hired poor people to make this exact type of mat but didn't mention selling them here

    Enormity = wicked act. Enormousness = great size. The difference: you can haz. Learn it, love it.
