Weapons in a Mosque (Ahadith 442 – 443)
I heard Jabir bin ‘Abdullah saying, “A man passed through the mosque carrying arrows. Allah’s Apostle said to him, ‘Hold them by their heads.’ “
Narrated Abu Burda bin ‘Abdulla:
(on the authority of his father) The Prophet said, “Whoever passes through our mosques or markets with arrows should hold them by their heads lest he should injure a Muslim.”
Ruling: shouldn’t carry loaded/open-headed weapons inside a mosque because that puts Muslims in danger.
Islam teaches this. If Muslims do otherwise, can’t blame Islam for that, right?
