transportable prayer mat


Muslims move around a lot to work, school, and other places all throughout the day. This means that we have to have a prayer mat at all times so that we have something clean to pray on whenever Athaan time strikes!

However, sometimes we forget to take one or just can't fit it in our bags. Your task is to design the prayer mat of the future, something that is easy to carry, remember, and use!
