> > JEDDAH/RIYADH: Taraweeh, which is a special prayer performed only
during Ramadan, is the best way to achieve closeness to God. 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
> > "Although it is a time full of spirituality, it is a season 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.
> > After hearing about an incident in a mosque in Al-Salama district
of Jeddah, Maha Abdullah, a forty-something mother of four, decided it
was time to take extra precaution. "We heard about a 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."
> > Most women are careful with their bags during prayer - typically
placing their purses in front of them so they can be mindful of their
belongings during prayer. But still, the occasional carelessly placed
personal effect is enough to encourage thieves to keep trying.
> > Abdullah says that her mosque has a cleaning woman who also acts
as a set of eyes. "She knows everyone and if a new face entered the
mosque she becomes alerted immediately, " she said.
> > Scholar Ahmad Al-Husain said that it is not a religious obligation
for women to pray in mosques, but that it is not recommended to forbid
them from attending. "Although there is a number of cases where men
tried to break into women's sections in mosques, I do not think it is
a phenomenon," he said..
> > Laya Abdul Kareem, 50, said a boy came into her mosque 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 bag and run
away," she said.
> > Fortunately, Abdul Kareem was praying on a chair because of her
age. The young boy thought she was performing prostration and
attempted to snatch her bag. "I saw him immediately and pulled my bag
out of his hands," she said.. "He ran away and no one saw him after that."
> > Since that incident, Abdul Kareem said the administrators of her
mosque hired a woman guard as an added precaution.
> > A mosque in Jeddah's Al-Rawdah district is typical - a small
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.
> > Mohammed Rashid, another of the mosque's attendees, says police
should be guarding all mosques during prayer times, especially the
Friday sermons and the Taraweeh prayers.
> > "It is unfortunate to have stealing incidents in mosques,
especially during prayers," he said. "But some weak-hearted people
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."
