How to be hospitable & respectful with a houseguest's religion?

A graduate student from Pakistan, who's never traveled abroad, will soon be staying in our US eastern Washington guest room for a few weeks (after a 34-hour trip to the US) while awaiting student housing. I'd like to be respectful and hospitable. Would it be rude, presumptuous, considerate, or otherwise to try to find a small prayer rug for his room before he arrives? Should I try to do this? If so, is it OK to shop local thrift and secondhand stores? What am I failing to consider?
