With nearly 1.6 billion Muslim's in the world, most of whom take their religious practice very seriously, it is surprising that certain items have not been brought into the 21st century like many other aspect of their lives; the EL Sajjadah Prayer Mat endeavors to do just that. An illuminating religious rug, it's TRON-like design isn't just for looks. The images on the EL Sajjadah Prayer Mat inform the Muslim where north is via a built-in digital compass as well as where he is in the world, which is manually input by the user via the 'city selection button.'

Developed by Soner Ozenc Product Design Studio, the EL Sajjadah Prayer Mat is nevertheless beautiful enough to hang on the wall as a night light when not in use.
