The Mosque Anonymous 05/20/2021 (Thu) 18:59:39 ID: ad8d65 No.219
The Mosque - the House of Allah Among the seven which are granted shade under the Throne of Allah on Judgement Day - the day when there is no shade but His - is the one whose heart is attached to the mosques. This is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 54. The mosque is the place in which Salah is performed. The Arabic word "Masjid" stems from the root s-j-d and means "place of prostration (to Allah)". Indeed the prayer in congregation is much better and more valued than prayer by oneself. The reward for it is twenty-seven times greater (Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 46) than praying alone. And it's mentioned in Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 81 that one who prays Isha' in congregation is like one who prayed for half of the night, and the one who prays Fajr in congregation is like one who prayed the entire night. And in Sunan Abi Dawud Book 2, Hadith 164 we are informed: "A man's prayer said along with another is purer than his prayer said alone, and his prayer with two men is purer than his prayer with one, but if there are more it is more pleasing to Allah, the Almighty, the Majestic." And the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said: "Convey glad tidings to those who walk to the mosque in the darkness. For they will be given full light on the Day of Resurrection." (Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 68). The mosque is the place in which Jumu'ah is held. On Friday the Imam delivers a Khutbah (sermon) to his community, and the Jumuah congregation is obligatory for Muslim men to attend. The Muslims should bathe before coming to the mosque, then they should come early and sit and listen attentively to this Khutbah and avoid playing, talking, eating or any distractions. The reward for attending Jumu'ah in the proper manner is tremendous. On Friday we should bathe ourselves, use perfume, wear the best clothes and clean our teeth. In Jami'at Tirmidhi Book 4, Hadith 9 we are informed: Aws bin Aws narrated: "Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said to me: Whoever performs Ghusl on Friday, and bathes completely, and goes early, arriving early, gets close and listens and is silent, there will be for him in every step he takes the reward of a year of fasting and standing (in prayer)." And in Sahih al Bukhari Book 11, Hadith 34 we are told that Salman Al-Farsi narrated: "Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven." The mosque is the place in which I'tikaf is practiced. This is what the Messenger of Allah - peace and blessings be upon him - used to do during the last ten tays of the blessed month of Ramadan (Bukhari Book 33). The I'tikaf is the retreat into the mosque, in which one spends his time worshipping Allah and leaving behind all worldly things. This is a Sunnah which is recommended during the last ten days of Ramadan and optional at any other time. The Mu'takif (the one who performs I'tikaf) may only leave his place for a necessary purpose, and return once the need is fulfilled, lest the I'tikaf be nullified. The Prophet of Allah - our teacher and role model, peace and blessings be upon him - used to insist on fulfilling this practice. Sadly today we have in large parts abandoned this great Sunnah.

Etiquette of the mosque Allah says in the Qur'an: إِنَّمَا يَعْمُرُ مَسَاجِدَ اللَّهِ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَى الزَّكَاةَ وَلَمْ يَخْشَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ ۖ فَعَسَىٰ أُولَٰئِكَ أَنْ يَكُونُوا مِنَ الْمُهْتَدِينَ "He only shall tend Allah's sanctuaries who believeth in Allah and the Last Day and observeth proper worship and payeth the poor-due and feareth none save Allah. For such (only) is it possible that they can be of the rightly guided." (Surah at Tawbah 18) Do's: Keeping the mosque clean. It was narrated from 'Aishah that the Messenger of Allah commanded that places of prayer be established in villages, and that they be purified and perfumed. (Ibn Majah 759) Avoiding bad smells. It was narrated that Jabir said: "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Whoever eats of this plant - the first time he said 'garlic' then he said, 'garlic, onions and leeks' [1] - let him not approach us in our Masjids, for the angels are offended by that which offends mankind." (Sunan an Nasa'i 707) Walking to the mosque calmly. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “When the Iqamah are pronounced, do not come to it running, you should walk calmly with tranquillity to join the congregation. Then join in what you catch for and complete what you miss.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. In Muslim it is added: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “For when one of you is walking for Salat, he is, in fact, engaged in Salat.” (Riyadh As-Salihin Book 2 Hadith 24) Remembering Allah much. Allah says: فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ الصَّلَاةَ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ ۚ فَإِذَا اطْمَأْنَنْتُمْ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ ۚ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَوْقُوتًا "When ye have performed the act of worship, remember Allah, standing, sitting and reclining. And when ye are in safety, observe proper worship. Worship at fixed times hath been enjoined on the believers." (Qur'an 4:103) Sitting in circles where Allah is remembered. Anas reported God’s messenger as saying, “When you come upon the pastures of paradise feed on them.” On being asked what the pastures of paradise were he replied that they were circles where God is remembered. (Mishkat al Masabih Book 9, Hadith 46) Don'ts: Buying and selling. Narrated Abu Hurairah: That the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "When you see someone selling or buying in the Masjid then say: May Allah not profit your business. And when you see someone announcing about something lost then say: 'May Allah not return it to you." (Jami'at Tirmidhi 1325) It was narrated from 'Amr bin Shu'aib from his father that his grandfather said: "The Messenger of Allah forbade buying and selling in the mosque, and reciting poetry in the mosque." (Ibn Majah 749) Looking for lost property. See above. Passing in front of someone who is praying. It was narrated from Busr bin Sa’eed that Zaid bin Khalid sent word to Abu Juhaim Al-Ansari asking him: “What did you hear from the Prophet (ﷺ) about a man when he is performing prayer?” He said: “I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying: If anyone of you knew (how great is the sin involved) when he passed in front of his brother who is performing prayer, then waiting for forty,” (one of the narrators) said: “I do not know if he meant forty years, forty months, or forty days, ‘would be better for him than that.” (Sunan Ibn Majah Book 5, Hadith 143)

To summarize: The mosque is for: >performing the prayer in congregation, it is better than prayer offered alone. >arriving timely on Friday, listening attentively and without distraction to the Khutbah. >retreating in I'tikaf during the last ten days of Ramadan, avoiding worldly things and devoting oneself to worship. >keeping clean and tidy. >arriving in a calm, clean and pure state. >remembering Allah. The mosque is not for: >buying and selling. >looking for lost property. >disturbing the people in prayer.
Dajjal has already invaded most (if not all) masajid. That's why you can't make solah without disobeying the Hadith by standing 1 meter away from each other. What a sad state the ummah is in right now, dancing to every tune that Dajjal plays.
>>269 Dajjal has not appeared yet. And there are fatawa saying it's ok to keep distance out of necessity.
>>271 >Dajjal has not appeared yet. Of course not. But he has been released. >And there are fatawa saying it's ok to keep distance out of necessity. A fatwa is a legal opinion, and this fatwa in particular is done through an invalid ijtihad. Why is it invalid? Because an ijtihad can only be done when the ummah is facing an unprecedented situation. Is Covid an unprecedented situation? No, it is not. It is a disease outbreak, and there were disease outbreaks in the time of the Prophet and the Aslaf. The plague of Amwas comes to mind. Did the Prophet or the Aslaf enforce lockdowns and permit social distancing in solah during these plague? No, they did not. Then, we already have an example to follow : The Prophet did not social distance during solah in the times of plague. The Aslaf did not social distance during solah in the times of plague. So what gives us the right to do it? The answer : ignorance and arrogance. We'd rather follow the commands of Dajjal's WHO than the teachings of the Prophet. Reminder that in the times of plague, the Prophet's commands were only : "to not enter or leave a plague-affected area, and if you die to the plague while obeying this command, you die as martyr". Imagine being afraid to enter Jannah freely. This is the ummah today.
Happy Friday! >Aws bin Aws narrated: "Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said to me: Whoever performs Ghusl on Friday, and bathes completely, and goes early, arriving early, gets close and listens and is silent, there will be for him in every step he takes the reward of a year of fasting and standing (in prayer)."
