Muslims want time off for prayers at work

British Muslims would like to see time off for prayers during the working day, according to a new survey.

A Guardian/ICM poll based on a survey of 500 British Muslims found a high level of religious observance, with just over half saying they pray five times a day, every day – although women are shown to be more devout than men.

The poll reveals that 88 per cent want to see schools and workplaces in the UK accommodating Muslim prayer times as part of their normal working day.
