Ruling on Wudu in case of laughing in mosque

Question 3: Does laughing in mosque invalidate Wudu?

Answer: No. However, laughing during Salah invalidates Salah but still Wudu will not become invalid. During the Salah that contains Ruku’ and Sujood, if an adult laughs in such a voice that he hears the voice of laughing himself, his Salah will become invalid, not Wudu. However, if he laughs so loudly that others also hear the voice of laughing, his Wudu and Salah will both become invalid. (Firdaus-ul-Akhbar, vol. 2, pp. 431, Hadees 3891)

Remember! Laughing in the mosque causes darkness in the grave. Therefore, one should not laugh in the mosque. (Madani Muzakarah, 3 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

Using or benefiting from something in pawn

Question 8: Is it allowed to borrow a sum of money by pawning something such as a house, etc., and what is the ruling on paying extra amount to the pawnbroker as a profit?

Answer: The pawned thing can neither be used nor be benefited from. For instance, if a house is in pawn, it cannot be used even for residence because residing in it is one of the ways of benefiting from it. No profit can be taken from it because it is actually the amount of interest. Taking and paying interest is a Haraam act leading to Hell.
