The women’s section of Saudi Arabia's Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, known as the relighious police, has prepared 300 women to supervise female gatherings in the Grand Mosque.

The supervisors are working in shifts and they enforce rules, educate women visitors and guide them to reduce crowding in the mataf area. The supervisors also give visitors religious books that contain prayers and supplications.
