Ruling on a Muslim abandoning congregational Salah to pray alone

A: It is obligatory to offer Salah in congregation. If a person prays alone while a congregational Salah is being offered, he will be doing something opposite to the Sunnah (whatever reported from the Prophet). This view is based on the reported evidence of Shari`ah in this regard.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
