The Muslim Car

From the department of Religious-Traffic-Jams:
The Malaysian carmaker Proton has announced plans to develop an "Islamic car", designed for Muslim motorists.

Proton is planning on teaming up with manufacturers in Iran and Turkey to create the unique vehicle.

The car could boast special features like a compass pointing to Mecca and a dedicated space to keep a copy of the Koran and a headscarf.

The idea came during a visit to the Middle East by a delegation of Malaysian politicians and businessmen.

Malaysian press reports say officials in Iran originally suggested the idea.
I remember John Chapman once telling us at Bible College that he found driving to and from work the best time of day to pray about things. He encouraged us to try it, but to make sure we kept our eyes open.

One thing the makers won't have to worry about is adjustable seats. Women won't be driving them, anyway.

Christians keeping eyes open is one thing but Muslims forehead to the carpet will present problems - how will they keep the GPS straight on Mecca.

In built foot washers?
