Is it permissible to use mobile in mosques with Islamic tunes. In Masjid-E-Khaif (in Mina) during Haj women stay in women’s mosque whereas men stay in men’s mosque (usually those who live in K.S.A and go on their own not through any agent). It becomes easy to contact one’s mahram on mobile, though man can go at the door of women’s section and tell his name to guard and then He/She can call his name on loud speaker.
It is not appropriate to use cell phones in Masjids, unless absolutely necessary, for in entails disturbing those who are engaged in worship (ibadah). To harm and disturb another individual is a sin in itself, let alone when one is engaged in an Ibadah, such as offering Salat.
Allah Most High says:
“And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly bear (on themselves) a calumny and a glaring sin.” (Surah al-Ahzab, V.58)
“And who is more unjust than he who forbids that in places for the worship of Allah, Allah’s name should be celebrated.” (al-Baqarah, V. 114)
The solution to the problem in Hajj is that, one may contact one’s family by going out of the Masjid and using the phone. The one who is being contacted should keep his/her phone silent, as not to disturb others who are engaged in worship. Thereafter, he/she may go out of the Masjid and answer the call.
And Allah knows best
