Masjid Rules

Al-Qur’ân Al-Kareem states that “The mosques of Allaah shall be visited and maintained by such as believe in Allaah and the Last Day, establish regular prayers, and practices regular (Zakaat) charity, and fear none (at all) except Allaah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance”. (9:17)

Do as many prayers in congregation in the Masjid, as possible.

Prayer in congregation is rewarded with 27 times more blessing than that said alone.

Do service to the Masjid by keeping it populated.

Go to the Masjid with eagerness and enthusiasm to say your prayers.

Keep the Masjid clean. Sweep it; dust it, fragrance it. Eat in the fixed place (down stairs,, not in the Masjid or School). Place the article that is in the wrong place, in its right place.

Greet the believer at the Masjid with sincerity and happiness upon seeing him or her. And don’t forget to smile to your fellow Muslim.

When sitting in the Masjid for the remembrance of Allah, seek humility and forgiveness and do not forget to feel that you are a guest and Allaah is the host.

When bringing small children to the Masjid, be mindful to keep them as quiet as possible out of consideration for those making Salat.

Do not use the Masjid as a throughway without purpose.

On entering the Masjid, use your right foot and say “O Allah, open the gates of Thy Mercy for me (Allahumm-aftah li abwaaba aromatic).”

On leaving the Masjid, use your left foot and say “O Allah! I seek your favor and blessings (Allahumma inni as’aluka min fadhlika).”

Do not rise your voice in the Masjid and let people do their Salât with Khoshoo’e and concentration.

Sisters should wear the Islamic veil (Hijaab). Take the flexible opinion when you (See the “The question of hijab”)

How devoted are we to the Masjid?

Do we ensure its upkeep and cleanliness? Do we attend to those we meet between its doors with sincere greetings and well wishes? Do we frequent the remembrance of Allah in mind and in our hearts or do we just go through the motions? Do we take for granted the needs of those who need help are being provided for without our input and resources? Do we support the efforts to propagate Al-Islam, which emanate (trust) from the Masjid? Do we invite others to the way of Allah and welcome them to the Masjid? Is the Masjid a nucleus around which our life rotates and is centered?

It is reported that the best part of the earth is that part on which a Masjid is raised. In the last few years, we have seen the destruction of Masjid in Bosnia, kosova and other parts of the world. Ask yourself, what would you do if you were separated form the Masjid? Ask yourself, what more you can do to support the Masjid and maintain it? Ask yourself, if you want for your brother what you want for yourself (a sign of belief as stated by Rasoolu-Allaah Muhammad, Salla Allaahu Alayhi WA sallama? Don’t wait for tomorrow to do what your belief beckons you to do. Tomorrow is not promised to you! Do it now, for the pleasure of Allah!

When you use anything; use it properly and return it to its place.

Keep the Bathroom clean and do not leave any trash there, also be aware of dirtying or contaminating the woudu area or by using the same shoes of bathroom in the area of wudu, the Hadeeth warned about no taking care of this issue as a major sin.

Use properly the Masjid’s installations, water, napkin, light etc. do not abuse or use more then your need because it is a (WAQF: God’s property) and it is a big responsibility before Allaah. f.. Before you leave be sure that cleanliness light, bathrooms, trash, the inside and outside of the Masjid is ok & beautiful. g.. Be sure that Masjid smells sweet smell and be aware of any bad smell.

This is only a reminder and we believe that you love the house of Allaah (The Masjid) and you are going to take care of it in the best way.

Brothers who come in Jamaa’ah (groups) should meet Imam for more details.
