Reciting the Quran through the Loudspeakers before the Friday Prayer

In some mosques in many parts of the Muslim world, Verses from the Noble Quran are recited through the loudspeakers before the Friday prayer, what is the ruling on this?

We do not know of any basis for this, either in the Book (of Allaah), or the Sunnah, or the actions of the Companions, or the righteous Salaf - may Allaah be pleased with all of them. Performed in the above-mentioned manner, it is considered innovatory which should be abandoned, because it is an innovation, and it may distract those who are praying and those who are reciting the Quran from their prayer and recitation. And Allaah, the Most Glorified, Most High knows best. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.
