Do I need to remove my shoes in the mosque?

We ask that you remove your shoes before entering the prayer area at the mosque, so that the floors and carpets aren’t covered with dirt–after all, that is where people pray. As you observe the physical nature of the Islamic prayer, this will make sense. You’ll be able to wear your shoes when walking through the other areas of the mosque. We can accommodate those who need to wear shoes due to medical needs with shoe coverings.
