Question

Has the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, been authentically reported to have ordered that the children and the insane should be prevented from entering mosques, and that he forbade raising voices therein?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.

The Hadeeth that you have referred to is narrated by Ibn Maajah,  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him through a weak chain of narrators as mentioned by Ibn Katheer  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him. Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him and others consider it weak.

Allaah Knows best.
