Quba1. One should not engage in worldly talk, nor discuss worldly affairs in the Musjid.

عن الحسن مرسلا قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :يأتي على الناس زمان يكون حديثهم في مساجدهم في أمر دنياهم . فلا تجالسوهم فليس لله فيهم حاجة .(البيهقي في شعب الإيمان رقم 2701)

Hadhrat Hasan (Rahmatullahi Alaih) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A time is soon to dawn upon the ummah when people will discuss worldly affairs in the Musjid. Do not sit with such people, for Allah Ta’ala has no need for them.”

2. Do not quarrel or argue with anyone in the Musjid as this goes against the respect of the musjid.

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “To swear a Muslim is a major sin, and to fight with him is an act that can lead one to kufr.”

Hadhrat ibn Umar (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The following things should not be done in the Musjid. It should not be used as a thoroughfare, nor should weapons be drawn out in the Musjid

عن واثلة بن الأسقع أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: جنبوا مساجدكم صبيانكم ومجانينكم وشراركم وبيعكم وخصوماتكم ورفع أصواتكم وإقامة حدودكم وسل سيوفكم.  (ابن ماجة رقم 750)

Hadhrat Waathila bin Asqa’ (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Keep your children, insane people, your transactions of buying and selling, your quarreling and arguing, your raising your voices, your executing hudood (corporal punishments), your unsheathing your swords away from the Musjid (i.e. do not carry out these actions in the Musjid).”

3. The Musjid should not be used as a thoroughfare to get to the other side.
