Those who distracts themselves with Mobiles during Jumuah Khutbah.

Those who distracts themselves with Mobiles during Jumuah Khutbah based on the commentary by Imam Nawawi Rahimahullah in Riyad us saliheen.

 

Many a times we see our brothers in Masajid busying themselves with mobiles/watches/prayer beads during Jumuah khutbah. They either Play Games or Send and receive Text Messages or chatting on net or surfing websites etc. Some of our brothers take their mobiles in hand and just keep rolling up side down and some just keep locking and unlocking it after every 10 minutes. SubhanAllah. They think that what is prohibited is Speech during khutbah.

 

InshaAllah, we will see one Hadith and will try to understand the Issue.

 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “He who performs his Wudu’ perfectly and comes to Jumu`ah prayer and listens (to the Khutbah) silently, the sins which he has committed since the previous Friday plus three more days (i.e., 10 days) will be forgiven for him. One who distracts himself with pebbles during the Khutbah will not get the (Jumu`ah) reward”.
[Muslim].

 

Commentary By Imam Nawawi Rahimahullah on this hadith::

This Hadith brings into prominence the following five important points:
1. It induces one to take full care in ablutions, that is to say, it should be strictly performed according to Sunnah.
2. The excellence of Jumu`ah (Friday prayer), which is obligatory for every sane, adult, healthy and resident Muslim, whether he lives in a town or village. The Friday prayer is performed in the mosque in congregation. It has two Rak`ah at the time of noon prayer and is preceded by Khutbah of Imam (who leads the prayer). It is not
performed individually at home.
3. Whoever does one good act will get ten-times reward in return. According to this principle, one who performs a Friday prayer, his minor sins relating the Rights of Allah which are committed by him in ten days are forgiven.
4. Silence during the Khutbah is a must, otherwise, one loses the reward of Jumu`ah prayer.
5. It is also necessary for a Khatib to deliver a brief Khutbah.

 

 

Prophet Muhammed Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said:

“One who distracts himself with pebbles during the Khutbah will not get the (Jumu`ah) reward”.

 

It is clear from this that one should listen  attentively to the Imam during the Khutbah, and not play with anything such as a Mobile, watch,  prayer beads, or anything else, or you will lose your reward.
