عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ “ لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يَتَبَاهَى النَّاسُ فِي الْمَسَاجِدِ ” .
رواه أبو داود و غيره
It was narrated that Anas bin Malik said:
“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘The Hour will not begin until the people compete with one another in decorating the mosques.'”
[Authenticated by al-Imam Albany rahimahullah]
The Lajnah ad-Da’imah stated in some of their Fataawa:
“This work is not permissible because of the authentic Hadiths reported concerning the prohibition of decorating Masjids. Moreover, this decoration will distract those who offer Salah (Prayer) by engaging themselves in looking and reflecting on these decorations and drawings.”
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’
Also the Lajnah (Permanent Committee For Scholarly Research And Ifta’) were asked:
(What is the ruling on) decorating the Masjids or writing Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) on their walls?
It is not permissible to do that.
