Ladies prayers section

I prayed my Zohor prayers at the new Mesjid at Petaling Jaya Old Town, Selangor, Malaysia today. Its a beautiful mesjid, maybe because its new, with new design and facilities.

However I observed that the ladies prayer section, at the back of the men's prayer hall, has no curtain or any enclosure at all except for a notice saying that its the ladies prayer section, the area enclosed by just rope enclosures. Its something very new (at least to me) in Malaysia. Normally the ladies prayer section are enclosed by movable wooden panels or opaque curtain (I am not sure whether such enclosure tradition is just an old Malaysian practice or a tradition by the Prophet PBUH).

Muslims of Wangsa Maju are encouraged to post articles and recordings.

Hmmm. I wonder how the setup will be in our own Wangsa Maju mosque.
