On the authority of Abu al-Mutawakkil that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) and his companions used to sit in the Masjid when they were fasting and they said: We are purifying our fast. (Ibn Abee Shaybah #8881)

Ibn Hazm commented on this narration stating: "That's due to mixing and intermingling with the people can be a cause for the scarring of the fast. How much are we in need of reviving this guidance during the days of fasting."
