Trust During Prayer Times

One phenomenon that continues to amaze me in Saudi Arabia is featured in this post.  The five daily prayer times require that businesses close for a half hour to an hour for each prayer.  This make no economic sense whatsoever, and I'm not aware of any other country in the world that closes for prayers.  

Shopkeepers will commonly leave merchandise out in the open, close up shop and go to pray.  No one steals or messes with stuff that is left out like this.  I cannot imagine this happening in the US.
