Therefore mosques become particularly crowded during the month of
fasting with worshippers. But these crowds also attract another type
of visitor, the thief, whose favorite target is unattended purses in
the women's sections of these houses of worship.
> The crime works like this: Thieves, sometimes women and
sometimes men disguised in abaya and niqab (face veil), come in
while women are preoccupied with prayer and prostration and snatch
purses from the careless and distracted. The men's sections are not
immune to this crime, either.

for thieves (too)," said Ali Al-Marshad, a worshipper in Riyadh who
goes every day with his wife and daughter to pray. "Women's mosque-
prayer season in Riyadh is Ramadan; this could explain why they are
sought by thieves. If I suspected that a man could break into a
women's section of the mosque I would not allow my wife and daughter
to go. I'd rather make them pray at home."
> Recently a mosque in Riyadh was struck by two men disguised
in women's garb. They grabbed a number of purses and fled. Shortly
after the women called the police, they cordoned off the
neighborhood around the mosque to no avail - the men had vanished
with their booty.

district of Jeddah, Maha Abdullah, a forty-something mother of four,

couple of theft incidents in the men's section," she said. "Thieves
were pick-pocketing worshippers at the entrance or exit of the
mosque. I became very cautious while praying. The women's section is
unguarded and it is located in the back of the mosque. I try not to
carry any money and I leave my mobile at home."

during Ramadan last year and tried to steal her purse. "This boy
snuck into the women's section of the mosque and tried to steal my

community house of worship where everyone knows each other. As with
most mosques, there is no on-site security. Women simply watch each
other's belongings and are mindful of new faces.

police should be guarding all mosques during prayer times,

don't care that God is watching them. There has to be security at
all mosques around the country. Putting one police car outside of a
mosque would have an effect on thieves."
