The Islamic religious influence can be seen in Cairenes everyday life: there are 5 daily prayers that Muslims do, women wear clothes that cover their entire body, as an Islam religion request and there are places (like coffeehouses) where women don't go. The men's clothes are the long robes with a turban or a hat and the children wears uniforms when are in school.
