A non-Muslim friend of mine is traveling to Pakistan for a few weeks and would like to visit a mosque while he is there. He will be going to Islamabad, as well as a few small towns near K2.

I have a few questions. Are non-Muslims allowed to enter mosques in Pakistan? I know many Muslim countries do not allow this, so I just want to find out if Pakistan is the same. If so, are there any recommended mosques to see in Islamabad?

Also, if he gets to go to a mosque, is there anything particular to Pakistani culture that he should be aware of (ie, customs or procedures when entering a mosque) other than standard Islamic etiquette?

Jazak Allah Khayrn!

Try the smaller masjids, they are usually more welcoming.

Well, it tends to be more of a problem in Muslim countries.

Anyhow, he's already left for Pakistan. Jazak Alllah Khair for the replies.
