How to calculate Masjid Carpet for our masjid?
If your masjid’s direction of qibla towards the corner of the walls you need to add at least -+30% of wastage. Let say your masjid’ qibla is 45 degree angle and has a size of 2000 sq feet. You need at least 2600 sq feet of masjid carpets.
If your masjid qibla straight to the wall you need to add at least -10% wastage.

Shipping cost must be paid by customers. We offer FREE shipping if the carpet is purchased by regular price and total purchased amount exceeds $14,000
Shipping cost is approximately 5-10% of total amount.
You will receive your orders within 3-5 business days.
“Inside Delivery” which is provided by trucking company is very expensive. Therefore we recommend masjids to unload the truck by themselves. We recommend at least 7-8 people to present at the masjid to unload masjid carpets. It is very easy unloading the rolls if you have at least two dollies. I recommend two 1000 lb. Capacity Furniture Dollies and thick wood stick.*
We call our customers one day before they receive their orders. If our customers don’t unload the truck they may pick masjid carpets at distribution center of trucking company with customers’ expense.
Shipping cost includes Early Notification Fee and Liftgate Fee.
