Focus on sermon, not phone: Imams

Imams called on Muslims to devote their attention to the Friday sermon attentively and refrain from fiddling with their mobile phones with games, surfing the Internet or the social media, affecting concentration on the message relayed during the sermon.

“Being distracted with a mobile phone while the Friday sermon is delivered is against the Sunnah and is considered a breach of etiquette,” said Imams at yesterday’s sermon.

“We should sit quietly and not let any distraction affects our concentration when the Friday sermon is delivered.

 “Such attitude should be left behind as it brings a big loss from reaping rewards that should have been gained when performing the Friday prayers,” they added.
