This question might deliver a hint or partial answer of my other question What is the fiqh ruling on lost property in mosques? and it has some relation with my former question: Do mosques in Islam have a sacredness and how is it defined?. But here I might ask about some more details about the specific ahadith on the topic of "Lost property anouncments in mosques?"
There are some ahadith on this topic like:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: If anyone hears a man crying out in the mosque about something he has lost, he should say: May Allah not restore it to you, for the mosques were not built for this. (Sahih Muslim, Sunan abi Daowd and Sunan ibn Majah)
Sulaiman b. Buraida reported on the authority of his father that when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) had said prayer a man stood up and said:
Who called for a red camel? (Upon this) the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: May it not be restored to you! The mosques are built for what they are meant. (Sahih Muslim 1 & 2 and Sunan ibn Majah)
These ahadith can be understood as a prohibition for seeking something lost in a mosque and/or for announcing a lost maybe even for raising the voice in a mosque.
- Which of these possible conclusions actually apply?
- Are they restricted on doing this inside a mosque?
- Does this apply for humans too for example a father/mother seeking his/her son/daughter/child who has got lost in the crowd during their stay inside a mosque?
