I was sexually harassed at 21 when I was doing Tawaf, right there in that most sacred place! The fact that it happened there, in that place where it’s supposed to be the holiest and safest sanctuary, broke me so bad that I never recovered from it! #MosqueMeToo

#MosqueMeToo I was sexually harassed in Umrah during Tawaf.I thought it was accidental but he kept groping me. I mean if men can’t discipline themselves even in the HOLIEST place on earth then I’ve truly lost hope in men to ever stop harassing us. We just want to be safe.

I stand with my sisters who’ve experienced sexual assault in environments they thought would be safe. Terrible people can inhabit holy spaces. It is telling of their own character. As Muslims it is our duty to advocate for our sisters who are facing injustice. #MosqueMeToo

One day, somebody touched my bumps and squeezed. I was shocked. I saw the guy behind me and he pretended doing nothing and moved. I was shocked that what I did just silently cry. It happened in Mecca. #MosqueMeToo

a young guy touched my body just next to Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi in Medina, Saudi Arabia. I was 15 years old and he was in his 20s.
I thaught Madina is a safe city, but I was wrong.
I’ll never forget and forgive.#MosqueMeToo

Each time my mom and her sisters went to Hajj, they were groped—disgusting ppl w/no morals/“deen”; toxic patriarchy; keep doing what you’re doing, Mona. #MosqueMeToo

I was 10 years old and I thought my sister was gripping my hips as not to lose me in the huge crowd after Jumaa prayer. But my sister was next to me and those turned out to not be my sister’s hands.
He didn’t move until she elbowed him away.
