Preparation of Prayer Rugs for Muslim Inmates

On the 29th of October, 2022 Pacifica Institute in Bay Area Cultural Connections hosted an event as part of Compassion Week. Lady volunteers of Pacifica Institute, BAYCC, and Los Altos United Methodist Church joined hands to prepare Muslim prayer rags, which will be supplied to imprisoned inmates imprisoned in Santa Clara County Correctional Facilities. Participants used cutting tools and measurement devices to bring up prayer rugs of specific sizes from fabric. The supply material also includes books of spirituality. Organizers hope the prayer rugs will help strengthen inmates’ faith and spirituality.
