Touring Sheikh Zyed Grand Mosque in my abaya

Touring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must when you are visiting Abu Dhabi. We've been here four years ago and it was not yet complete. The gardens outside still waiting to be landscaped. We wanted to enter the mosque to see the grandeur of the famed place of prayer but we were denied due to strict clothing policy so we content ourselves photographing it from the outside. Four years later and we are back with two of our friends. I make sure to check the mosque management website before our trip in order not to be denied for the second time. Looking at the dress code below, I understood that we were not properly dressed before. There were dressing booths at the entrance now where ladies can borrow abaya and Shayla which were not there before. My friend and I each took an abaya and Shayla and covered ourselves. The abaya was easy to put on but wearing the headscarf is quite tricky though. We struggled to keep it in place all the time. Our partners were fine in their clothes.
