Offering Salah individually

Q: I hope Your Eminence will explain whether a person who offers Salah (Prayer) alone, even if in their houses, (Part No. 5; Page No. 58) is entitled to announce the Adhan (call to Prayer) and Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) and then start to offer Salah.

A: Muslim men are obligated to offer the Five Obligatory Daily Prayers in the Masjid (mosque) in congregation. If they have a Shar`y (Islamically lawful) excuse, it is permissible for them to offer Salah at home. If they offer it alone, they should only announce the Iqamah and not the Adhan.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
