Mosque Speakers In Saudi Arabia Can Only Be Used In Limited Capacities


Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs has imposed restrictions on the use of speakers in mosques in efforts to continue to make society comfortable for everyone.

Speakers can only be used for calls for prayers and for Iqamat

A circular has been issued by Abdul Latif Al Sheikh, Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs, to all mosques across the Kingdom, to limit the use of loudspeakers only for Azaan and Iqama and lower the volume of loudspeakers to one-third level.


The directive is based on Shariah

The circular is based on Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) Hadith in which he said: “Lo! every one of you is calling his Lord quietly. One should not trouble the other and one should not raise the voice in recitation or in prayer over the voice of the other.”

The rule is also based on fatwas by most senior Islamic scholars like Sheikh Mohammed bin Saleh Al Othaimeen and Saleh Al Fawzan, that loudspeakers in mosques should only used for Azan and Iqamat
