Bismillaah-ir-Rahmaan-ir-Raheem 

The Messenger of Allaah - sallallaahu alahyi wa sallam - described playing with pebbles and other similar things during the Khutbah of the Imaam as a foul act as he - sallallaahu alahyi wa sallam - described talking during the Khutbah. 

Al-Imaam Muslim, Aboo Daawud, At-Tirmidhee and others recorded in their books that the Messenger of Allaah - sallallaahu alahyi wa sallam - said:

'Whoever plays with pebbles has fouled.'

Ash-Shaykh Mash'hoor Hasan Salmaan - hafidhahullaahu - said: This is because it takes the heart away from concentration. Playing with subhah (prayer rosary), keys and what is similar also follows the ruling.
