Buying and Selling goods at the door of a Masjid

Question 35: What is the ruling on selling things at the gate of the Masjid (mosque), especially before and after the Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer, since we have some people who sell things at the gate of the Masjid until the Friday Sermon starts and then enter the Masjid? If the merchandise are Siwaak (tooth-cleansing sticks) or perfume, then what is the ruling?

Answer: Selling at gate of the Masjid from outside is permissible, if it is done before the second Adaan (call to the prayer) which is called while the Imaam is sitting on the pulpit, but if it is after the second Adaan, then it is not allowed, because Allaah [Exalted and Sublime be He] prohibited it, saying: O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salaat (prayer) on Friday (Jumu‘ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allaah [Jumu‘ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salaat (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing).read more here.
