The Ruling on Students Making Noise in the Masjid – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad
Question: What is the ruling on some students gathering inside the masjid, speaking a lot, and raising their voices until their is noise/clamor inside the masjid?
Answer: “Raising voices and causing clamor in the Masaajid is unpleasant. It is necessary to protect the Masaajid from that. The masjid is only for the recitation of the Quran, remembering Allah, supplication, and learning beneficial knowledge. This is what the Masaajid are for. Clamor is befitting in the markets. It is not befitting a person to do what is not befitting in the Masaajid, like raising the voice, making noise/clamor, and disturbing those who are praying or reciting Quran or remembering Allah”.
