Expat Woman In Oman Puts Pages Of Qur’an On Her Feet And Enters A Masjid


Asalamu Alaikum

Allegedly she is from France wallahu alim. When told that she was going to be arrested, she fainted. Her lips look dry, she might be dehydrated. It is very hot in the Gulf right now. Click the photos to enlarge them. 16 July 2013 update: According to a report on Oman Coast, the woman was laughing and crying at the same time which suggests that she may be possessed and/or mentally unstable wallahu alim. If true, shame on the two Omani men for advising her to do such an atrocious thing as rubbing the Qur’an on her feet to relieve pain. That is absolutely NOT the way to utilize the Qur’an for ar-ruqyah ash-shar’iyah subhanAllah.

Muscat: A European woman was arrested on Sunday in Sohar for desecrating the Quran, according to sources at the Royal Oman Police (ROP).

The accused tore pages from the holy book, the sources said. “She then rubbed these torn pages on her feet,” a witness said.

A resident near Al Hamadah Mosque in Sohar, about 231km north of Muscat, saw her desecrating the Quran. “The resident alerted police and officers from the Sohar police station who went to the spot and arrested the accused,” a source at the ROP confirmed.

The woman is detained pending further investigations.

A source said that this was the first time an expatriate had indulged in such a despicable act and to make it worse her act had come during Ramadan.

Neither her identity nor her nationality was made public.

  1. She must be insane or had a heat stroke to do such a thing! This is one of the oddest stories I’ve ever read. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  2. Jean, my friend who lives in Oman has been updating me on this woman’s story. Supposedly she gave a reason for her actions to the police: she had pain in her legs and two Omani men told her to put the Qur’an on it. This hasn’t been confirmed but doesn’t make sense in any way. What Muslim in their right mind would suggest such an unholy thing? Or was she purposely inflaming anti-Muslim sentiment? Although I don’t understand why she is living in a Muslim country if she hates Islam enough to do that. One of my friends said she looks possessed and yet another thinks she is drunk. Whichever is the case, things are definitely not looking good for her.

  3. This is interesting information. I suspect that they will discover that she was under the influence of some kind of drugs… For sure, anyone to do such a thing can not be in their right frame of mind. I’m sure the truth will come out after the authorities question her. Something is amiss — no normal person would do this…

  4. Something good I noticed out of a bad situation…no Muslim mistreated her for such an offensive deed. Testament to the true peaceful and forgiving nature which Islam teaches us.

A penny for your thoughts...
