Back Of A Worship Participant

I saw a group of men gathered for prayer standing inside the mosque

The prayer in the mosque seemed to be coming to an end. I noticed that the believers who had been sitting on the floor listening to the sermon were all standing up. The long-running Friday mass service was coming to an end. As soon as the service was over, the congregation must have stood up and headed for the exit at once. A boy wearing a taqiyah, who was standing at the back of the group, probably anticipating a large crowd, turned around to look outside the mosque.

Inside the mosque, as in Japanese shrines and temples, shoes are strictly forbidden. All the men inside the mosque now were taking off their shoes to join in the prayers. There was no such thing as a shoe box here, so everyone entered with their shoes off on the ground. As a result, the entrance was littered with discarded footwear. It was a kind of chaos. It must be hard to find where your own shoes are. In addition, many people were wearing sandals, which also made it difficult to know which shoes were theirs. It seems as if there were many similar sandals laying around here and there.
