Abu Ja’far Mansoor, the Muslim ruler, was once engaged in a discussion with Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) in the Musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). During the course of the discussion, Abu Ja’far raised his voice. As soon as he did this, Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) cautioned him saying, “O Ameerul Mu’mineen! Do not raise your voice in this Musjid, for Allah Ta‘ala corrected one group of people and taught them respect and etiquette saying,

لَا تَرۡفَعُوۡۤا اَصۡوَاتَکُمۡ فَوۡقَ صَوۡتِ النَّبِیِّ

‘Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)’

Allah Ta‘ala praised another group saying,

اِنَّ الَّذِیۡنَ یَغُضُّوۡنَ اَصۡوَاتَہُمۡ عِنۡدَ رَسُوۡلِ اللّٰہِ اُولٰٓئِکَ الَّذِیۡنَ امۡتَحَنَ اللّٰہُ قُلُوۡبَہُمۡ لِلتَّقۡوٰی ؕ لَہُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَۃٌ وَّ اَجۡرٌ عَظِیۡمٌ ﴿۳﴾

‘Those who lower their voices in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for piety, and for them is forgiveness and a great reward.’

And Allah Ta‘ala disliked the action of another group saying,

اِنَّ الَّذِیۡنَ یُنَادُوۡنَکَ مِنۡ وَّرَآءِ الۡحُجُرٰتِ اَکۡثَرُہُمۡ لَا یَعۡقِلُوۡنَ ﴿۴﴾

‘Indeed those who call out to you from outside the inner apartments, most of them lack understanding.’”

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) thereafter further explained and said, “The respect and etiquette that has to be shown to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) after his demise is the same as the respect and etiquette that had to be shown to him in his blessed lifetime.” When Abu Ja’far Mansoor heard this, he immediately accepted the correction of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah).
