Is it permissible to announce about a lost child through the amplifiers of the Masjid? إنشاد الضوال باستعمال مكبرات صوت المسجد

All praise is due to Allah alone, and may the Salah and Salam of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

To answer your question, we say while seeking the success from Allah:

The Masjids should be free of loud voices and announcements about missing or lost objects because Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (may the Salah and Salam of Allah be upon him)) said: “Whoever hears a man making a lost property announcement in the mosque, let him say: May Allah not restore it to you, for the mosques were not built for this purpose.” Reported by Muslim (568)

This report indicates that Masjids should be free of such acts, and if there was a need to announce about such events then it should be outside the Masjid or at a place made specific for this purpose outside the Masjid just like the place made by Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him), which was called al-Butayhaa’.
