locate an open space and sit there. To thrust oneself between two sitting persons looks awkward. Fifth, entry into the
mosque should be followed by the performance of two Rak`ah prayer, even if the Imam is delivering Khutbah
(religious talk)
. Sixth, an attempt should be made to offer voluntary prayer before the Khutbah. Seventh, complete
silence should be observed during the Khutbah to the point that one is not allowed to say to the other person: "Keep
silent,'' if one does not want to loose reward. Eighth, if a man offers his Friday prayer by observing the said
conditions and prerequisites, his week-long sins will be forgiven by Allah. But these are exclusively minor sins
including failure in doing one's duty to Allah. As regards major sins, the sinner will not be forgiven by Allah unless
he sincerely repents from the sins. Similarly, a man's failure to do his duties towards his fellow-Muslim brothers or
sisters, in case he has wronged them in anyway, will not be pardoned unless he is forgiven by them.

`Amr bin Shu`aib on the authority of his father and grandfather reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
is not permissible for a person to sit between two people without their permission.''
This Hadith tells us that a man is forbidden to push himself between two sitting persons unless they
themselves allow him to do that.

Hudhaifah bin Al-Yaman (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Whosoever takes seat in the midst of an
assembly has been cursed by Messenger of Allah (PBUH) The Messenger of Allah curses the one who sits in the
middle of people's circle.
[Abu Dawud].
Herein, we are also told that a man must not push himself into the circles of some sitting people as
this shows no consideration for their feelings. A Muslim should not intrude on other people's personal affairs.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying
"The best assemblies are those in which people make room for one another.''
[Abu Dawud].
This Hadith tells us that the closely-sitting people have a feeling of narrowness and suffocation. On
the other hand, in a well-spaced meeting, one has a feeling of relief and comfort. The Hadith urges us to spread out
in assemblies and make room for one another to the comfort of everyone.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Whoever sits in a
gathering and indulges in useless talk and before getting up supplicates: `Subhanaka Allahumma wa bihamdika, ash-
hadu an la ilaha illa Anta, astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaika (O Allah, You are free from every imperfection; praise be to
You. I testify that there is no true god except You; I ask Your Pardon and turn to You in repentance),' he will be
forgiven for (the sins he may have intentionally or unintentionally committed) in that assembly.''
A senseless, boisterous talk, not related to the life to come, is unprofitable and warrants deprecation.
But since it is a small sin, it may be pardoned if one sincerely repents of it. Yet, it cannot be classified under the
