The Ruling of Bringing Cellphones into the Masjid

From: Al-Qawlus-Sadeed: The Straight forward word

What is the ruling on bringing cell phones that have ring tones, pictures, and music into the Masjid?

That is not permissible in the Masjid or in any other place. However in the Masjid it is worse. That is because the Masjid should be respected. It is the place of worship and remembrance of Allah the Glorified, the Most High and a place for prayer and reciting the Quraan. The angels and the Muslims gather within it. Therefore it is not permissible to bring these types of offensive materials into the Masjid, not ring tones or music or pictures.

Shaykh Saalih bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan, May Allah preserve and protect him. (Member of the Major Scholars and Permanent Committee for Religious Rulings).
