Omani Beduoin Architecture and Interior Design


In Oman, a very typical feature of Beduoin homes is the use of palm fronds to compose structures. Often ropes are hung to hang blankets used for colder evenings from, and rug and carpets line the floors. Lighting comes from Coleman lanterns.Weaving blankets, tents, and baskets is a craft for the bedu and they are typical items of use and decoration in a beduoin home. Beduoin encampents have inspired many tourist attractions and restaurant and hotel attractions in Oman:

A'salaamu alaikum. Ya OPNO I have a hijrah question for you. I am sure you get tired of this and for that I'll apologize. My husband and I are seriously considering moving to a Muslim country.

Out of all the places, Oman really just stands out as the best for obvious reasons (at least obvious why we don't want to live in some of the others!).

I just wanted to know on job prospects. His other wife is a hafiza masha'allah and is currently a teacher in an Islamic school in Morocco. She speaks French and Arabic but very little English. I will insha'Allah have my nursing license before too long. We were just wondering at the difficulty/easy of getting a visa there and if you have any idea what the job prospects are like for my co-wife and insha'allah myself... Really any info would be much appreciated, jazaki (jazakum?lol) allahu khair.

To Liliane: I don't know which photo is yours. I just google images. To be honest, copyright is tricky subject. Most photographs can be used for educational purposes so long as they are not commercial without anyone's permission but I respect the right of someone who makes a living by an image. Let me know which one besides just venting "offense" which was unintentional.

Wa alaikom e salaam ramatullahi wa barakto sis: Oh yay! I love Oman:D and want everyone to come here hehehe. especially a strong Muslim pop..

Depends for your husband what his profession. Nursing for you will be sooooooo easy. As are teaching jobs with visas [English and French]There IS a French school, but am not sure about how easy it is to obtain for Islamic teaching ect. some jobs in Oman are only for Omanis (Omani passport not just residents). So you would have to research the madrassas to see. I can ask a few of the schools I've worked for, but they are English/Arabic not French/Arabic. French is not widely spoken in Oman.

The French Embassy might have something of course.
