I take cell phone in college for study purposes or for some dawah sometimes: if we take cell phoned in such conditions and not for haram purposes, is it allowed?
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My question is, if cell phones are not allowed in institutes , but if students bring it secretly , is it deception ? I take cell phone in college for study purposes or for some dawah sometimes , not always. All classmates take cell phone everyday secretly, my mother orders me to keep a cell phone in bag to inform about van if we get late , so if we take cell phoned in such conditions and not for haram purposes, is it allowed? I think teachers know that we take it secretly.

Take mobile in school
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 59: O you who believe, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those entrusted with authority amongst you. Then if there arises any dispute about anything, refer the dispute to Allah and the Messenger, if you truly believe in Allah and the Last Day. That would be the best way and most suitable for final determination.
If cell phones are forbidden in the college, then one who professes belief in Allah swt and the Last Day should always adhere to the laws.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
