Article summary: 

Muslims will face an LE10 fine if their cell phones ring during prayers at a Giza mosque, which is popular with al-'Ayāt town residents, the local media reported on March 30.

The fines will be used for upgrading the government-run mosque, which has become the first mobile-free place of worship in Egypt.

According to the local imam, the mosque is a sacred place of worship which must be respected and glorified.
