Ruling on offering the Five Obligatory Daily Prayers at home because of feeling lazy to go to the Masjid
Q 3: My weekend is on Thursdays and Fridays, and
on those days I offer the Five Obligatory Daily Prayers at home, because I feel too lazy to go to the Masjid (mosque),
given that I have three children. What is the ruling on this?
A Muslim should offer the Five Obligatory Daily Prayers in the Masjid; it is impermissible for him to offer them at home, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
Whoever hears the Adhan and does not come to Salah, then there is no reward for this Salah, except with an excuse.
He (peace be upon him) said to the man who came asking him to let him offer Salah at home,
"Do you hear Adhan?" The man said, "Yes." He said, "Then answer it."
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
