What kind of talk is allowed in Masjid

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

'what kind talk is allowed in Masjid'

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)


In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 18:

18 The mosques of Allah shall be visited and maintained by such as believe in Allah and the Last Day, establish regular prayers, practice regular charity, and fear none except Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance. 


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verses 35-36:

35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a lamp: the Lamp enclosed in glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: lit from a blessed Tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West whose oil is well-nigh luminous though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light. Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things. 

36 (Lit is such a light) in houses (mosques) which Allah hath permitted to be raised to honor; for the celebration in them of His Name: in them is He glorified in the mornings and in the evenings (again and again). 


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the literal meaning of the Arabic term 'masjid' means 'a place where prostration or sajdah is done'; thus the very essence of the name 'masjid' implies that the main and very purpose of the mosques in Islam is solely for the Remembrance of Allah Subhanah. 


The first thing that the Messenger of Allah (saws) did on reaching Madinah was lay the foundation of a 'masjid'; and thereafter the masjid was used as an assembling place for the believers not only for their regular prayers, but also served as a 'city hall' or meeting place for the believers who wished to serve in the Cause of Allah.

Although the primary cause of the 'masjids' in Islam is to assemble to worship their Lord Most High in prayer, it is absolutely permissible to use these noble houses of Allah to do anything that will further the Cause of Islam.


During the Prophet's (saws) time, his mosque was used as an assembling place for the believers where they would pray, learn the deen from the Prophet (saws) and amongst themselves, recite the Quran, invite other people to Islam, assemble and make strategies to further the Cause of Allah, etc.; basically the houses of Allah were used at a 'city hall' where the believers could assemble and remember their Lord Most Gracious and strive together as a unit to further the Mission.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
