  1. All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

    It is confirmed in a Saheeh [sound] Hadeeth that was reported by Ibn Maajah in his “Sunan” that ‘Amr Ibn Shu’ayb reported from his father from his grandfather (‘Amr Ibn Al-‘Aas may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) forbade announcing lost items in the mosque. Moreover, Abu Hurayrah may Allaah be pleased with him narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “Whoever hears a man announcing in the mosque about some objects which he has lost, let him tell him ‘May Allaah not return it to you for the mosques are not built for that’.” [Muslim]

    Many scholars may Allaah have mercy upon them stated that the reason for which the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) forbade announcing lost items in the mosque is raising the voice. This reason applies to any lost item, be it a person, an animal or a property.

    Indeed, the Permanent Committee of Fatwa received a question that reads: “We saw in the Hadeeth that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) forbade announcing lost items in the mosque, like an ID card, a passport and so forth, but if the lost item is a human being, then is it permissible to announce that in the mosque, like an infant, a boy, a young man or an elderly man…? The answer of the Committee was as follows: “It is not permissible to announce lost items in the mosque regardless whether it is a property, an animal or a human being for the general prohibition of announcing lost items in the mosque.”

    Defining the item and telling people about it is included in the meaning of announcing it. Ibn Qudaamah may Allaah have mercy upon him when speaking about the definition of the lost property, he said: “One should not announce for it in the mosque because the mosque is not built for this purpose.”

    However, some scholars may Allaah have mercy upon them made an exception for announcing for a human being from the prohibition of announcing a lost item in the mosque, but in principle, one should stick to the general ruling unless there is something that specifies it.
