Question

assalamualaikum
if i write word of mosque
replacement of word masjid are
its sin coz so many people said
that ,,Please try not to use the
word "Mosque" for "Masjid" as
it is derived from Mosquito by
jews plz tell me what to do
jazakallah khiar

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger.
The word ‘mosque’ which you
mentioned in the question
means Masjid, as far as we
know, and it does not mean
mosquito. Therefore, it is
permissible to call the Masjid by
this word [mosque] when
speaking or writing in English.
The fact that this word
[mosque] resembles the word
mosquito does not mean that it
is derived from it. Also, it is not
possible to forbid its use just
because of the claim that it is
the Jews who used it, and the
like. However, if its use is wide-
spread among the Christians for
the purpose of mocking, then it
becomes impermissible to use
it.
Indeed, Allah forbade the
believers from saying “Ra’ina”.
The word, “Ra’ina” in Arabic
literally means “consider us,”
i.e. give us time to hear you
and listen to us. The Jews used
to use the same word with the
meaning of an insult in their
language (Hebrew). Therefore,
the believers were ordered to
avoid this expression and use
instead the word “Unthurna” i.e.
“wait for us [so that we may
understand].” Allah Says (what
means): {O you who have
believed, say not [to Allah’s
Messenger], “Ra‘ina” but say,
“Unthurna” and listen.}[Quran
2:104]

Allah Knows best.
