Muslim prayer section (Musalla) at HKIA
A musalla (Arabic: مصلى, translit. muṣallá) is an open space outside a mosque, mainly used for praying. The words is derived from the verb صلى (ṣallā), meaning "to pray". A musalla is also referred to a room, structure, or place for conducting Salah which is smaller than a mosque. It is usually used for conducting the five mandatory prayers or other prayers in a small congregation or individually by Muslims, but not for big congregation prayers such as Friday prayer, Eid prayer, Taraweeh, etc. Musallas are usually present in Airports, Malls, and other public places of Muslim and some non-Muslim countries for Muslims to conduct their daily prayers. Usually a musalla doesn't have a minbar.
