“’Ibn Mas’ood, may Allah be pleased with him, saw a man supplicating to Allaah while holding a stone, so he said, ‘When you beseech your Lord for some good then don’t ask Him while you have a stone in your hand.”
Az-Zuhd of Ibn Mubaarak, 84.
Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr said,
‘Such things in their hands would weaken their devotion when supplicating.
What have mobile phones done to the hearts then and how much have they turned away and hindered people from the Knower of the Unseen?’”
