The smell permeates the masjid during Jum’ah which takes the peoples concentration off of the Khutba. Then, when the jummah is over, the men are hanging over the dividers passing their money and blocking the sisters path to the doorway to get the children either back to school, put their shoes on or leave, whichever the case may be. Some times there are men, who come through the curtain that dividesthe doorway access and block the sisters from leaving and refuse to move.
It is not permissible to buy and sell food in the Musjid.
It is against the honour and respect of the Musjid to do so. The trustees of
the Musjid should stop the practise immediately.
And Allah Taãla Knows Best.
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
