Ash Shaykh Abdullah Al Bassam said,

“Beautification of the Masaajid is not from the Sunnah, rather from the innovations. Also that which is in it from extravagance in spending and it is Haram, Moreover that which is in it from busying the hearts and loss of tranquility/submission which is the soul of worship!” End translation. [Tawdeehul Ahkaam 2/151]
