Announcing Lost Property, or Selling in the Mosque (115)
The Prophet said: "If you see one who sells, or buys in the Mosque then say: Lã 'arbahallãhu tijãrataka(137)
and if you see someone announcing his lost [thing] then say: Lã radda 'allãhu `alaiyka dhallataka(138)

(137) May Allah not render your business profitable.

(138) May Allah not bring back your lost [thing].


'Al-'Adawee said it was comely and that it was reported by At-Tirmithi, #1321. At-Tirmithi said it was comely strange.
