The local Govt. of Karachi metropolis should impose ban on usage of loudspeaker

The Religious speeches (which are continuing these days) while living in a congested environment where the distance in between your apartment or house is hardly 10 – 12 feet from the house which is either opposite to you or situated adjacent to your house.

It goes very annoying and really a persistent nuisance for the dwellers living in the same vicinity or in the same community.
Even you can’t talk to your family because of using loudspeaker with full volume by the Maulvi/ Imam of specific sects who instead to do at designated place it is being carried out at community level in the houses & apartments.
I understand the owner of the house who is conducting such religious gathering at his/ her house should think that a regular use of loudspeaker will be harmful for their neighbor.

Owner who do daily arrangement for celebrating specific festival should care that around the house other people are also living, instead to listen to the preacher the people go panicky considering unethical attitude and not sensing and feeling the problem of older family members where there are some sick, kids & heart patients are also there how such heavy & hard voice will be getting him/ her more stressed and can cause brain hemorrhage.
The voice from loudspeaker impacts heavily with window glasses then anybody can understand how badly it affects to the brain of a patient who are facing such strikes on daily basis these days.

We being a Muslims are well aware that Islam teaches us to care for your neighbor and then your relative, the right of a neighbor has been defined in Holy Quran.
So I understand those who are doing such regular ‘sitting in their houses’ and using loudspeaker (with full volume) must avoid otherwise such unrealistic and ruthless trends if continued will lead to reverse the situation.
Further, Islam considers the rights of the neighbor to be extremely important. The Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) continued to urge the Prophet, to treat neighbors with kindness until he thought that the Sharee'ah would assign him a share of his neighbor's inheritance.

The Prophet,said: “Jibreel kept on recommending me to treat neighbors kindly and politely so I thought that Allaah would order [me] to make them [my] heirs.

The Quran recommends treating neighbors kindly - Allaah The Almighty Says (what means):

Worship Allaah and associate nothing with Him and

to parents do good and

to relatives, orphans,

the needy,

the near neighbor

the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side…Quran 4:36

Look how the Prophet, exhorted Muslims to be good to their neighbors and to honor them when he said: “… and whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, should serve his neighbor generously.”

The narration of Muslim states: “Should be good to his neighbor.”
I hope the Govt. of karachi metropolis will immediately issue a formal order to stop the usage of loudspeaker
There is arabic proverb that choosing your residence,” that it is according to the value and merit of the neighbor that the price of the residence should be estimated. A good neighbor is a source of happiness.
