Islamic cult

Musée des Oasis

The practice of the Islamic cult implies the existence of a Mosque in each village for prayers at noon on Friday (the remaining prayers may be said in the Mosque or in any other place).

It also implies the presence of a cemetery near the village, where the dead are buried, wrapped up in a while cloth, without a coffin, and laid on their right side to look at Mecca. Two stones on the grown show the position of each grave.

Most of the cemeteries are placed under the symbolic protection of a shrine, which provides a place to visit and pry. Being usually the Mosque just for men, the shrine is attended mostly by women.
