“’Ibn Mas’ood, may Allah be pleased with him, saw a man supplicating to Allaah while holding a stone, so he said, ‘When you beseech your Lord for some good then don’t ask Him while you have a stone in your hand.” Az-Zuhd of Ibn Mubaarak, 84.
Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr said, ‘Such things in their hands would weaken their devotion when supplicating. What have mobile phones done to the hearts then and how much have they turned away and hindered people from the Knower of the Unseen?’”

Questioner: What is the ruling about entering a mosque with mobile phones that have ringtones, pictures and music?
Al-Fawzaan: That is not allowed, not in a mosque or elsewhere, but [doing so] is even more severe in a mosque, because it is obligatory to respect it, it is a place of worship and remembrance of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى, [a place of] prayer and recitation of the Quraan, and the Angels and Muslims assemble in it. So these wrong actions [munkaraat] are not permitted in it, not the ringtones, not the music and nor the pictures.
