HURMAT OF A MOSQUE

CLASS 5 - LESSON 3
HURMAT OF A MOSQUE
Hurmat means great RESPECT or
REVERENCE. When we go to a Mosque
or Imambara, we should realise that we
have come to remember Allah.
There is a difference between a Mosque
and an Imambara. A Mosque is where
prayers are offered.
An Imambara can be used for many
things, such as gatherings, food, prayers
and lectures.
This means that you can do certain things
in an Imambara that you cannot do in a
Mosque.
When you are in a Mosque, you MUST be quiet. People will be praying and it would
be VERY rude to talk. If you have to talk, it should NEVER be about things which are
not important.
When you are in a Mosque or an Imambara, your mind should be thinking about your
creator.
In an Imambara, it is all right to talk, BUT on certain occasions only. If there is dinner
or tea being served, you may talk, but when there is a lecture or du'a being recited,
you should keep quiet and remain in one place, without moving and causing
disruption.
If you see someone making a Mosque Najis, it is WAJIB for you to tell him to stop. It
is also WAJIB to clean it and make it Tahir.
You should NEVER run around in a Mosque/Imambara or use it to play games in.
You should behave in a Mosque AS IF it belonged to Allah.
Although we know that Allah does not need a house, we should pretend that Allah
was watching us and that we are close to him.

THE MOSQUE IS WHERE WE GET CLOSEST TO ALLAH IN OUR HEARTS.
When entering the Mosque, we should say:
"In the name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah and there is no power except that
of Allah."
When leaving the Mosque we should say:
"In the name of Allah, I seek the protection of Allah from Shaitan."
Why should we remain silent in a Mosque?
The reason why we should be silent in a
Mosque is so that we can learn and
understand more about Islam.
This means that when someone asks us any questions, we can help them by
answering and so please Allah.
We can also set an example to others and so gain Thawaab (reward) from Allah.
Ayatullah Khumeini has said that
"The one who shows the path of virtue is as worthy as the doer of it"
This means that if you show someone how to be good, and do something generous,
you get as much Thawaab as the person who does the deed.
When a lecture/du'a is in a language we cannot understand, we should remain silent
so as not to disturb others who are listening.
In conclusion, we should remain silent ANYWHERE where Allah is being praised or
remembered. This is to respect the One Who created us.
