Screaming and shouting in the Musjid

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it allowed in a Musjid for someone to recite loudly a naat or nazam and people to start screaming and chanting. The screaming is literally shouting and people going into a trance. The screaming is not praises to Allah or his Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) but really shouting. The reciter also encourages such screaming. Is this practise allowed to take place in a masjid?


A: It is not at all right.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
