On December 1, 2004 Business Today Egypt reported, "It may be a bit messy, ...but more and more workplaces are finding the need for creative solutions to make room for God in the workplace. There is no debating whether prayer should be allowed. Followers of any religion consider it a privilege and a right to serve God in this way. And now, more than ever, people worldwide are searching for spiritual enlightenment. What complicates this trend is that it is taking place as work demands more time and energy from us than ever before. As with any activity that takes place at work, it all boils down to the concept of time management, and how employers can encourage a healthy balance between productive work practices and the need for religious fulfillment."
