WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRAYER MAT, RUG, AND CARPET?
Prayer mat -- Typically, a mat is, first of all, useful; its primary purpose is to provide a clean place to pray on.
Prayer rug -- Typically, a rug is a vanity piece for display or light usage. A prayer rug may not be used as often as a prayer mat.
Prayer carpet -- A carpet is used in large areas like mosques or houses. Unlike rugs and mats, carpets aren't portable.
When selecting a prayer mat, there are four basic designs defined by two main approaches, directional and boundary-based. Furthermore, the main characteristics are determined by suggestive versus candid features.
