Often we hear children noisy in mosques during prayer or when preachers are preaching, then some worshipers forbid children from entering the mosque on the grounds that they still carry unclean if it hasn't been circumcised, often the child's parents don't accept it when their children are scolded in public. How does Islam provide a solution to this problem?
Parents are obliged to teach their children the procedures for worship starting from prayer, fasting and other obligations, even when children reach the age of seven must be taught to pray and if they enter the age of ten don't want praying, parents may beat him to the extent of frightening him.
In the Fatawa Dar Al-Ifta'Al-Misriyyah has been discussed regarding mosques and children, namely:
ﻛﻤﺎ ﻳﻨﺪﺏ ﺗﺪﺭﻳﺐ اﻷﻭﻻﺩ ﻋﻠﻰ اﻟﺼﻼﺓ ﻭاﻟﻄﺎﻋﺎﺕ ﻓﻰ اﻟﻤﻨﺎﺯﻝ ، ﻳﻨﺪﺏ ﺗﺪﺭﻳﺒﻬﻢ ﻋﻠﻰ اﻷﻋﻤﺎﻝ اﻟﺠﻤﺎﻋﻴﺔ ﻟﺘﻘﻮﻳﺔ ﺭﻭﺡ اﻻﺟﺘﻤﺎﻉ ﻓﻰ ﻧﻔﻮﺳﻬﻢ ، ﻭﻣﻦ ﺫﻟﻚ ﺷﻬﻮﺩﻫﻢ ﻟﺼﻼﺓ اﻟﺠﻤﻊ ﻭاﻟﺠﻤﺎﻋﺎﺕ ﻓﻰ اﻟﻤﺴﺎﺟﺪ
Parents must teach their children to pray and worship when at home, like that u also worked together to arouse his awareness of socializing for example Friday prayers and congregational prayers at the mosque.
From this explanation parents must teach first their obligations at home then be taught the importance of congregation in the mosque after they are able to distinguish well and bad or better known as mumayyiz. If the child has not been able to do that then the child should be taught first at home. This aims to not disturb other people who are worshiping.
If Muslims are too harsh to respond to children who are too noisy at the mosque, they will be traumatized to come to the mosque and this will be a problem for the Muslims themselves namely the Mosque will empty there is no congregation. Children are the next generation who must be directed not to be reviled, let alone get yelled at, love them as the key to their success.
