Allah the Glorified commanded Muslims to honor and enliven the mosque with His remembrance:

In houses [mosques], which Allah has ordered to be raised, in them His name is glorified in the mornings, and in the evenings (Quran 24:36).

Ibn Abbaas, Mujahid, and Al-Hasan commented: “The ‘houses’ are those mosques that were dedicated to the worship of Allah. And verily, the mosques light up the earth for the inhabitants of the heavens, just as stars light up the heavens for the inhabitants of the earth.”

The Blessed Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: “The bazaars (markets) are the worst of places, and the mosques the best of places.”

And who is more unjust than the one who prevents people from the mosques of  Allah, and His name should be celebrated? ―Whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except in fear. For them there is nothing but disgrace in this world and in the Hereafter, an exceeding torment. (Quran 2:114)
