Raising Your Voice in a Mosque (Hadith No. 459)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Go through a few repeated Ahadith before we come to no. 459. Reminder benefits. :)

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 456:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

“Allah’s Apostle in his fatal illness came out with a piece of cloth tied round his head and sat on the pulpit. After thanking and praising Allah he said, “There is no one who had done more favor to me with life and property than Abu Bakr bin Abi Quhafa. If I were to take a Khalil, I would certainly have taken Abu- Bakr but the Islamic brotherhood is superior. Close all the small doors in this mosque except that of Abu Bakr.”

More on it here.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 457:

Narrated Nafi:

Ibn ‘Umar said, “The Prophet arrived at Mecca and sent for ‘Uthman bin Talha. He opened the gate of the Ka’ba and the Prophet, Bilal, Usama bin Zaid and ‘Uthman bin Talha entered the Ka’ba and then they closed its door (from inside). They stayed there for an hour, and then came out.” Ibn ‘Umar added, “I quickly went to Bilal and asked him (whether the Prophet had prayed). Bilal replied, ‘He prayed in it.’ I asked, ‘Where?’ He replied, ‘Between the two pillars.’ “Ibn ‘Umar added, “I forgot to ask how many Rakat he (the Prophet) had prayed in the Ka’ba.”

More on it here.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 458:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle sent some horse men to Najd and they brought a man called Thumama bin Uthal from Bani Hanifa. They fastened him to one of the pillars of the mosque.

More on it here.

 

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 459:

Narrated Al-Sa’ib bin Yazid:

I was standing in the mosque and somebody threw a gravel at me. I looked and found that he was ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab. He said to me, “Fetch those two men to me.” When I did, he said to them, “Who are you? (Or) where do you come from?” They replied, “We are from Ta’if.” ‘Umar said, “Were you from this city (Medina) I would have punished you for raising your voices in the mosque of Allah’s Apostle.

If you ever find yourself shouting/raising your voice in a masjid, remember this stern reaction of Umar (RA). Masjid is a sacred place. A place where Allah is remembered, worshiped. It requires a certain respect from us. A code of conduct, to be precise. Remember that book we used to read as kids called ‘Adaab-e-Zindagi’? Open it up and read the chapter titled ‘Masjid ke Aadaab’.
Or just look it up in Minhaj-ul-Muslim. :P

Wassalam.
