Mosques are holy places that should not be tainted by anything that is visibly or invisibly unclean. Glorifying the mosque can prevent disasters or punishments from happening. As stated in a bioigraphy, Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. saw a black woman slave in a mosque built specially for her by Allah in heaven for her noble and favourite deed of cleaning the mosque. This was among the matters highlighted by Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Dr. Ustaz Haji Awang Abdul Aziz bin Juned, the Stae Mufti in delivering the first Friday Sermon at the Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque in Kampong Mentiri.
The State Mufti said that satans are uneasy with mosques. They are uncomfortable with the mosque because it is the place where people recite the zikir, remembering Allah, where as to the satans, zikir are like bomb blasts over their heads. A mosque is undoubtedly a sacred and blessed place, and those inside are the source of blessings and safety for all.
Yang Berhormat cited Allah's decree in a Qudsi tradition interpreted as "Verily,Allah truly wishes to punish mankind for their sins on earth; however, when Allah sees there are still many people glorifying Allah's House and people loving one another for Allah as well as those asking for forgiveness at night before dawn, Allah withdraws his punishment from them. During the time of Prophet Muhammad, S.A.W., lived a black woman slave named Ummu Mahjan. She worked as a voluntary cleaner at the Prophet's mosque entirely for the love of Allah and Allah's House - the mosque. When Ummu Mahjan passed away, Rasulullah cried and prayed for her. Finally, the Prophet saw her sitting in a mosque built especially for her by Allah in heaven.
