Saudi Arabia appoints female workers in Madina mosques
They will manage and supervise female departments
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs has appointed female workers in Madina mosques to serve in the female sections.
The female workers’ duties will include supervising or managing the female departments of mosques. The Ministry said it will be monitoring the situation and supporting workers wherever possible to help perform their duties.
They will also help control or maintain prayers with measures. Currently, this is related to social distancing and preventing measures, in addition to developing women’s advocacy, adjustment for prayers, and other activities related to the section of the mosque.

However, this is not a new or major change, as the same has been seen similar setup in Makkah Al Mukarramah and Madinah Al Munawwara. But it will now be more rational to help and maintain the safety of everyone.
