From Among the Masjid Manners.. (Hadith No. 732)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 732:

Narrated Ibn Juraij:

I heard Nafi’ saying, “Ibn Umar, said, ‘The Prophet forbade that a man should make another man to get up to sit in his place’ “. I said to Nafi’, ‘Is it for Jumua prayer only?’ He replied, “For Jumua prayer and any other (prayer).”

If it only happened in classrooms and other random places, I wouldn’t consider it a problem. But it happens in masajid! Wallahi, we are so ignorant of the teachings of Prophet (SAW), we don’t even know how to behave in a masjid. In this particular case, we aren’t considerate of other people’s comfort and ease.

Why do you ask the someone to get up from their place, only to sit there? Is there no other space in the masjid hall where you can sit? Or are you just too concerned about your ease that the other person and their comfort is of least importance to you?

Masjid is a sacred place. Yes, you need to show a particular behavior there. But we get trained through special places, special times and special things only to incorporate that training into our daily lives. For example, this Hadith talks about not making anyone get up from to sit in their place – in a masjid – for prayer. But you must not restrict it to prayer or masjid only. Apply it in your daily routine. Don’t make anyone get up to sit in their place – anywhere – for anything, unless it’s absolutely necessary. Not in a class, not on a dining table, not in a lounge, not on a couch, not in a public or private place. It’s bad manners. The other person does not feel nice, man!

I apologize for the weird way this post has been written. I just did not get the time to think twice while writing.. Mhmm.

Wassalam.
