Questions Regarding Prayer Hall
|Q.) In our company where I work, there is a hall which is dedicated for
performing prayers. There is no Imam and Muezzin assigned. Anybody becomes the Imam.
Except for Fajr prayers all prayers are performed there at proper timings with Azan.
Will the Prayer performed there be 27 times better than individual prayer?
A.) Salat performed in congregation at the designated hall is superior (27 times) than Salat performed individually. The Du'a before entering a Masjid may be recited and intention for Nafl I`tikaaf may also be made before entering the hall for Salat. Similarly, one will receive reward for every step taken towards the hall for Salat. However, performing Salat at the hall will not attain the virtue of performing Salat at the Masjid. And Allah Ta„la Knows Best.
