Italy..Children manipulate and infiltrate the ranks of those who pray the Tarawih prayers

During the month of Ramadan, various Islamic cultural centers in Italy experience a large influx of worshipers, especially members of the Moroccan community, to perform the five prayers in congregation, as the houses of the Most Merciful are crowded during the holy month. believe that to fast is only to abstain from eating and drinking, so that their stomach fasts and their heart and tongue break. By a number of manifestations that are not suitable for the fasting person, nor for his fast, nor for the sanctity of the holy month, including taking children to mosques to perform prayers with their families, especially the Tarawih prayers and prayers. They disturb the peace of the faithful and cause them to complain and distract them, because of their jokes, their laughter, their chaos, their running and their annoying quarrels.

There is nothing wrong with bringing a boy to the mosque, rather he should be accustomed to it and encouraged to do so, unless his presence disturbs the faithful and harms them with his movements and games, in which case he must not be brought; Because mosques were not built for play and fun, but rather for prayer, respect, remembrance and tranquility. The Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade some worshipers from reciting out loud over others, so how about playing? , running and moving from one place to another, which confuses the faithful and makes them lose their respect and confidence.

As soon as the imam and worshipers begin to perform the Tarawih prayers, many mosques in the country turn into arenas of children's quarrels, shouting and having fun. Some of them jump on top of each other and chase each other, amid laughter and bickering, like turning on speakers and changing windows, lights and air conditioners.

While parents believe that taking their children to pray with them at Islamic centers is intended to educate them on the virtues of prayer at the mosque, it seems clear that some parents do not realize that the age at which a child should visit the mosque is seven years. and more, because he is not aware of it, sufficiently when he is less than seven years old, but he can commit troublesome acts that harm the worshipers, thus making his father a sinner because of his actions.

After this incident, we must wonder about those responsible for the spread of the phenomenon of children playing in Islamic centers, particularly during the month of Ramadan: are they children, parents or mosque leaders? Of course, no one disputes the fact that young children without distinction are not held responsible for their actions and therefore cannot be held responsible for their inclination to play in mosques, especially if the atmosphere is empty for them and give them reasons to play. and have fun, and they are free from the company of their guardians.

Therefore, the burden of responsibility undoubtedly falls primarily on the shoulders of parents. These people must accompany their children to mosques if they are able and teach them the etiquette of entering them. In addition, part of the responsibility is not excluded from the caretaker of the mosque, who must be vigilant during the holy month. .
