Maintaining silence in the Masjid

The Masjid is the most sacred place on earth and commands the highest respect. Talking about worldly affairs and involving in activities of worldly nature are prohibited in the Masjid.


Allah Ta'ala says in the Noble Quran: 'And the places of worship are (dedicated) for Allah, so do not invoke anyone along with Allah'. (Surah Jinn)

Hazrat Ali t narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “A time will come when nothing will remain of Islam except its name and nothing will remain of the Quran except its text; there will be Masjids but they will not resound with the praises of Allah...”
(Shuabul Imaan - Baihaqi)

Hazrat Saib bin Yazid (RA) narrates that once Hazrat Umar (RA) pointed to two men who were making noise in the Masjid and asked him to bring them to him. Accordingly, he brought them to Hazrat Umar (RA). He asked them where they lived. They replied that they are from Taif. On hearing this, Umar (RA) told them that if you had been residents of this place (Madinah), I would have reprimanded you for making noise in the Masjid of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). However, I excuse you today because you have come from out of town.” (Bukhari)

Talking about worldly affairs in the Masjid wipes out good deeds just as fire destroys wood; or as animals eat away grass. It is narrated from Hazrat Hasan Basri (Rahimahullah) that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A time will come on people when they will indulge in worldly and vain talks in the Masjid, so you should not sit with such people as Allah has no need for such people.” (Mishkat from Sunan Baihaqi)
