Friday Prayers Experience in Kampung Alor, Dili

It was Friday 27 March 2010, 12:00 pm when I arrived at the An Nur Mosque Kampung Alor, Dili. The parking lot was filled with cars, even as a vacant lot in front the Embassy of Australia was also filled with cars.  Most are white-colored vehicle with the words “UN” on both sides.

According to Amirudin, a resident of Kampung Alor, An Nur was always crowded with Muslim Dili Timor-Leste which will perform Friday prayer service. Moreover, many Muslim members of the UN Security forces from Muslim countries like Egypt, Malaysia and Nigeria come for Friday prayers.
