Manners of the Masjid

This world is a means to get closer to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is waiting for us on the other side

Glorify the sacred in Islam like the Masjid

Ibn Hajja mentions twenty intentions of going to the Masjid

Prepare yourself for entering the Masjid

One should be in a state of dhikr

This is a time to bring yourself into account

Ibn Mashish said, "I seek help from you, to you. I seek assistance from you, to you."

Make your intention: I have left my house for nothing except for the sake of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

And Ask: I ask you for protect from the fire and to enter heaven

Ibn Hajja said when you intent to leave for the Masjid you should lower your gaze

When you enter the Masjid ask Allah to forgive your sins

Ask him to open his doors of mercy

Pray 2 units of prayer - even before you sit

Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) used to stop people using the Masjid as a pathway, by entering one entrance and exiting by another

We have been ennobled by Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala to place our faces on the places that the companions walked, in the Masjid Nabi

Give salat on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), give salams to those present, even if there is something there

Don't speak about worldly matters in the Masjid

Don't spit or walk in front of anyone

Remove filth

Don't bring children to the Masjid that are not toilet trained

Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala is the owner of the Masjid, would you like someone to come into your house and disrespect it?

You can spit in the Masjid if its sand and you can easily hide it

People who enter the Masjid are the people of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and the people of Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) are the people of hadith

Keep the Masjid tidy

Its not permissible to bring weapons into the Masjid, in the Hanafi madhab its an act of apostasy to do so. It will instil fear into people who are in the Masjid

Its not permissible to kill anyone in the Masjid

The etiquettes of the Masjid are very high

The woman who used to clean the Masjid of the Prophet, died. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) prayed over her grave and he saw her in a dream cleaning a Masjid in heaven

Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala is the host of the house and we are the guests
