I own a petrol station and workers leave the station at Salah (Prayer) times to offer Salah, but one of them has to stay behind to guard
the outdoor equipment such as pumps and fire tools. Because petrol is very dangerous and highly flammable, is it permissible for me to ask one of the workers to perform Salah inside the station to guard it (Part No. 8; Page No. 55) while the rest of the workers perform their Salah in the Masjid (mosque)? Please provide me with your beneficial answer. May Allah safeguard you and reward you with the best.
A: If the case is as you mentioned, it is permissible for you to ask one worker to guard the station during the time of congregational Prayer.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
