Book Name:Shaban ul Muazzam main nafil ibadaat

1.         proven way of stifling a yawn is that if you begin to yawn, then immediately imagine that the Prophets عَـلَيْهِمُ السَّلَام never yawned.

2.         Nothing of the world should be discussed inside the Masjid. However, if you want to say something related to the religion to someone, then it should be said to that person in a low voice after approaching him, rather than standing inside the Masjid talking loudly to someone standing on the road outside or someone who is calling from outside, and he is replying to him in a loud voice from inside the Masjid.

3.         Joking is already forbidden and is strictly impermissible in a Masjid. Laughing in Masjid is forbidden because it causes darkness in the grave. (Firdaus-ul-Akhbar, vol. 2, pp. 41, Hadees 3706)

However, there is no harm in smiling when necessary. Nothing should be thrown on the Masjid floor, but rather it should be gently placed on it. In summer, people often use hand-operated fans and then throw them onto the floor of the Masjid or at the time of placing something, it is dropped from a distance (making a noise), and that is prohibited. In short, respecting the Masjid is Fard for every Muslim.

4.         Breaking wind in the Masjid is prohibited. One should go out if necessary, Therefore, a Mu’takif should eat less food during I’tikaf and keep his stomach rather empty so that he may not have to break wind except at the time of defecation, because he is not allowed to go out for this.

5.         Stretching the legs towards the Qiblah is prohibited everywhere and one should avoid doing so towards any direction in a Masjid as it is contrary to the manners of the Masjid. Once Sayyiduna Sari Saqati رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was sitting in the Masjid alone, he stretched his legs out. Suddenly he heard a voice from a corner of the Masjid, ‘Do [people] sit in this same manner before the kings?’ He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه immediately pulled his legs back and did not stretch them out again until his death.
