Men sneaked into mosque at prayer time

Saudi women beat peeping-Toms at mosque
 
Women were performing taraweeh prayers (file)

DUBAI (AlArabiya.net)

A pair of peeping-Toms hoping to get an illicit look at a group of women at a mosque in Saudi Arabia got a beating instead.

A group of Saudi women beat two young men who sneaked into a mosque in the northwestern city of Hail to watch women praying during the taraweeh, a nightly prayer recited during Ramadan, the Saudi newspaper al-Riyadh reported on Sunday.

A woman noticed that two men had sneaked into the women’s section of the mosque and were peaking at the women. She called other women praying in the mosque and they pounced on the intruders. The women beat them with their shoes and water bottles.

The women said they did not report the male intruders to the mosque's imam because they did not want to interrupt the prayers.

The girls then called security. The two men tried to run away but failed. They are currently being interrogated.

so this will cause saudi men to say women shouldn't go to the mosque. 

Umar (ra) forbade women from coming to the mosque after something like this happened 1400 years ago (i believe).  and so today whenever a sister is in a jam and has to pray she has to go home and can't pop into her local mosque to pray -- because women are not allowed in mosques in much of the muslim world!

isn't life great?!

sorry, i don't mean to be so negative...but there is a problem here which pious muslims, particularly pious sisters, paradoxically don't seem to care about; but which the anti-religious do care about and harp on about endlessly.

wsalam,

dude it's a funny story. c'mon maybe it was kids who did it on a dare. anyway saudi is pretty good about having nice women's sections everywhere. every mosque i went to there has beautiful women's sections that are well cared for. UNLIKE as u mentioned most of asia, where women just don't go/aren't allowed to/haven't built a women's section and unfortunately they've brought that bad cultural aspect to the west.

ws,

they can pray in jamah at the masjid. what isn't allowed is only women praying in jamah like with an imam in one place. and again that is only one school and only for women's gatherings. so the women at that time pray individually. this should not prevent women from attending the mosque. especially in the west where the mosque is not just a mosque, they are islamic centers, centers of learning and social identity. it is important women go and that every mosque is designed to accomodate the entire community. women, children, handicapped etc etc.

As salaamu alaikum

This was funny but also reflects what most of us already knew; women can handle themselves.

I wonder how much rapes, abuse and peeping tom activities would drop
if the men could be beaten every time it happens   Huh?    Grin

Just allow female friends and family member in a room with the guilty party
and allow them 15 mins to beat the tar out of such men.  Wink
