May the Kuffaar entering the Masjid…???

no_entry_sign but isn't in Masjid's Wall

At August 5, 2008 when our practical work’s team went to the Kuta’s Pumping Station to followed Pumping’s training, We got something there. It was happening after We heard adzan’s voice and then We went to the Masjid Rahmat (the central masjid in Kuta, Bali) to pray dzuhur. We looked at the wall of Masjid, there is a writing…” No Entry for Non Mosleem!”. Suddenly, I wanna asked my self. Is that statement right??? Where’s the hujjah writing on???

Finally, I got the answer from al-Lajnah ad-Daa’imah Lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa. The committee for Islam Research and Fataawa. I hope this Fataawa is gonna help us to get the answer about the question above.

Recently, al-Lajnah ad-Daa’imah Lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa was asked,” What is the ruling on non-Muslims entering the masjid?”

Then they answered…

“For other masaajid in the world, some of the fuqahaa have said that it is permissible due to the absence of any evidence to prohibit it, while others said that it is not permissible, making qiyaas with al-Masjid al-Haraam.

The correct position is that it is permissible when it has a shar’ee benefit, or there is a need for it, like the non-Mosleem hearing something that may lead him to enter into Islam, since the Prophet Muhammad Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam tied up Thumaamah ibn Athaal al-Hanafy in the masjid before he accepted Islaam, and the delegation from Thaqeef and one from the Christians of Najraan came to the masjid before they accepted Islaam, due to the numerous benefits in that, like their hearing the addresses of the Prophet Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam and his admonitions, their witnessing the people praying and reading (Al Quran), and other great benefits that do not reach someone who does not keep to the masjid.

And with Allaah is the success, and may Allaah’s Salaah and Salaam be upon our Prophet, and upon his family and Companions.”

Certainly, the statement or wall’s writing at Masjid Rahmat Kuta, Bali is not Syar’ee and doesn’t suitable with Islamic Rules…

Taken by Fatawaa of al-Lajnah ad-Daa’imah Lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa Volume 6, Page 276, Fatwa No.2922

Wallahu Ta’ala A’lam…may it can help us to understanding Islam by using the English…

the image is incompatible, akhi…
I think the right purpose is for bio-hazard :(
why don’t you just taking picture in front of that Masjid yesterday? :?

but your posting was right, so sensitive with many unique things in Bali :D
there’s no rule which said that “non-Muslims are dis-allowed to enter Masjids”

I think, this is some kind of bid’ah that “they” have made :mrgreen:

Ya…ya… I know akhi.

Oh, yesterday you didn’t bring the camera to take it as a picture. Then how can I take it…???
Actually that sign isn’t suitable with my posting, but please make it so easy. I think the others will understand if I used that because I don’t have a camera.

Bid’ah…??? I cann’t judge that. But it could be so possible.

Barakallahu Fiykoom…

:roll: For how long that sign has been attached at there ? Hemm.. I never found a such thing like that before.. It’ll make a bad perception on a ‘kuffaar’ mind.. It will be good if that sign is changing to the procedure,
something like this :
1. This is mosque, whoever you are, please clean up yourself before enter.
2. Please don’t disturb or make a noise.
3. …etc..

Ya, gitu deh, pan lebih santun.. ya pa kagak ? ..oooopss..

I don’t know at all, akhi. Just looked arround…Your suggestion is right, exactly! Thank’s…

Barakallahu Fiykum…

I have a question. Why non muslim aren’t permitted to the Masjid.
it same that Muslim doesn’t want non Muslim to know about islam very much.
and of course, they will always have a negative worldview to Islam.

Lho – lho akhi…? Please read it again! Your statement were wrong. Barakallahu Fiykum…
