Imams up in arms over gadget distraction during Friday prayers


Religious authorities were up in arms over congregants using their smartphones during the Friday sermon, calling such an act a great loss and a waste.

“There are congregants ignoring the Friday sermon by talking and joking with each other, or using their smartphones. Some are negligent by not switching to the silent mode, affecting other congregants,” imams said in the Friday sermon, adding that some, without feeling guilty, browse the Internet, play games or use social media.
