Beating the duff in the musjid

Q: I came across this hadith: Aisha (Radiyallahu Anha) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Proclaim the nikah. Have it done in the masjids. Beat the daffs (tambourine drums without jingling discs or bells) for the occasion.” (Tirmizi vol. 1 pg. 207 Qadeemi) So is it permissible to beat the daff in masjid?

A: There was no practice of beating the duff in the musjid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
