The I Love Qatar team is back with season three of its helpful Qtips.

In this latest video, Khalifa Saleh Al Haroon explains why it’s important to remove your shoes when visiting a Qatari’s home or majlis (unless you’re told otherwise.

This is because cleanliness and good hygiene are very important in Islamic and Qatari culture.
