Leaving the congregation and offering Salah at home

A: It is obligatory upon the people of the village to offer the five obligatory Salahs in the Masjid which is located amidst the villages because Salah in congregation is obligatory. The Masjids they have built in their houses should be used for performing the supererogatory Salah and voluntary night Salah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, (Part No. 7; Page No. 308)  Perform some of your (supererogatory) Salah at home and do not make it like graves (by not praying therein). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
