Turn off the Hellphone Yo! It’s Prayer Time..

Salam, shataan phone

Does taking out your phone, checking who called you, canceling the call and shutting off the phone invalidate your salat in the middle of ruku?. I seen a brother do this yesterday in the Jumuah Prayer, i was asking myself like is that salat valid?, its so distracting, i mean in the middle of praising Allah you get a call from someone, the only wireless connection your suppose to be having in salat is with Allah, and no carrier can give you better connection than yourself, you have to conscious of what your doing in salat!

Technology is advancing at the speed of light or i should say some people’s salat..haha, but its so weird like seeing people talking on the phone when we are lining up for salat, or pulling out their sidekicks and making text messages, we seriously gotta learn to leave the world behind us when we start the salat, I don’t know if any of you ever heard of this but when we say Allahu Akbar to start the salat and raise our hands to our ears it looks as if we are leaving the world behind us then we lock ourselves in to the salat…and its Allah time!

What’s even more annoying is when some brother’s Haram ring tone goes off in the middle of Salat, and then when the Salat is done, everybody starts turning their heads wondering who’s cell phone it was, but having some dirty song play during prayer can get you in alot of trouble, so brother’s and sisters turn off your cellphone when you enter the masjid. Just the other day my phone went off during salat, and thank god it wasn’t no music ringtone but it was a constant bell that kept ringing and ringing, and when the salat was done, everyone was grilling me, my fault! they should make cellphones that don’t ring during salat and have automatic detectors.

At the end of the day, we just have to get our priority’s straight and Allah told us to pray 5 times a day, Thats it! and if we can’t shut off our phones for that little time and be conscious of Praising Allah then we have serious issues, i rather have drop calls then pick up sins….so think it over Inshallah. I hope we all don’t let this fast life and all these technological distractions take over time to pray, and make us forget about why we are praying. Ameen!

    If anything deserves a stoning, cell phones ringing during the salat do! In my town, you have to drive to the masjid, so there's no excuse to even bring the silly thing inside–just leave it in the car! Don't get me started on using the adhan as a ringtone…while it's marginally better than some dumb song, it still trivializes the deen in obvious ways.

    That really made the day for me today: it's true that people reeaalllly neeeed to leave their cell phones behind once it's time for Salah. I've almost got used to hearing some random person's ringtone in the middle of Jum'uah prayer or Tarawi prayer; it's really annoying as well as distracting. Thank you for explaining this to everyone who is pretty much that ignorant about this topic, since I hope that people follow this.

    Cellphones ringing during salah seriously make shaytan grin wide….. it makes their job easier! They might persuade everyone who has haram ring tone in their cellphones to do jamaah prayer at the mosque and make them ringing and ringing and ringing that makes you feel you are not doing salah in a mosque but instead a ……. somewhere else
