Is there a prayer room facility in Frankfurt airport?

Some of us are desperate for this facilities as we sometimes route through this airport for umrah and Hajj

    I'm kind of confused by both of these comments. I often visit UK airport prayer rooms (as I stress about all the people), and there's usually paraphernalia of various faiths, including a Qibla sticker, prayer mats, etc. Same sort of thing in hospitals. Is this rare worldwide? The idea of separate public prayer rooms for different faiths is new to me. Is it a cultural thing; something that's changing over time;...? – Dan Sheppard Jan 26 at 0:13

    @DanSheppard I have seen mixed; sometimes same room is used by all faiths and sometimes they provide separate facilities. – Hafiz Jan 26 at 11:40
  • @Sentinel the answer is yes women can and do pray with men. There are certain conditions placed to ensure the integrity of men and women is maintained. – Hafiz Jan 27 at 21:23

Yes.

The Frankfurt Airport website page on Muslim prayer rooms says:

Friday prayers are held in the Muslim prayer room in Terminal 1 every Friday at the time stated in the prayer calendar.

Prayer room for Muslims

  • Terminal 1, Level 3, Departures B, Room 201.3014-3015
  • Terminal 1, Level 2, near Gate B22
  • Terminal 2, Level 3, near Gate D1

There are also prayer rooms for other faiths.

    @Cody I can't tell if you're joking, but brothers and sisters doesn't refer to biological siblings, but to fellow men or women respectively in the faith. It's also used in Christianity. – Cullub Jan 25 at 20:58

    Ah ok I see, so he should specify "brothers and sisters within the Muslim faith" as this site is visited by people from all belief and political systems – CodyBugstein Jan 25 at 21:01
