Audio link:

Question: What is the ruling about the one who hears the adhaan but does not go to the masjid to pray? Will his prayer be accepted if he prays at home or not?

Answer: Praying in congregation is obligatory. He – peace be upon him – said: “whoever hears the call [to prayer] but does not come to [the masjid], he has no prayer except with a [valid] excuse”. So it is mandatory for him to pray in congregation if he hears the call [to prayer] and is able to attend

[6] Excerpts From Fiqhul Ad-iyah Wal-Ad-kaar – [Wisdom Behind Istighfaar After The Salaah [i.e. after Tasleem] [PDF 1 page]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy



The wisdom behind [الاستغفار – (i.e. saying: أستغفر الله three times)] after Salaah is to manifest the soul’s wrong doing – that the slave [i.e. the performer of the prayer] did not fulfil the rights of the prayer – neither completely nor perfectly in the manner it is obligated; because it has to be the case that he did fall into some deficiency, shortcoming and negligence. Therefore, he seeks forgiveness in the hope that his shortcoming is relinquished and so that his Istighfaar [i.e. seeking forgiveness] can be a means of remedying the deficiency or shortcoming in his prayer.

Supplication When Leaving For Salaah In Jamaa’ah [i.e. in the Masjid]



O Allaah! Place light in my heart; light on my tongue; and place light in my hearing; and place light in my sight; and place light behind me and light in front of me; and place light above me and light below me; O Allaah! Grant me light. [Saheeh Muslim 763. Quoted by Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr in ‘Fiqhul Ad’iyah Wal Adkaar’ page 121’ section 3&4]

[سُبْحَانَ المَلِكِ القُدُّوسِ]

[Part of a hadeeth in Sunan An-Nasaa’ee reported by Ubay Ibn Kab (radiyallaahu-anhu) & declared Saheeh by Imaam Albaani (rahimahullaah) in Saheeh Sunan An-Nasaa’ee 1/372]

How many Rak’ats prayed before khutbah begins on the day of Jum’ah

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) says: There is no specified number of rak’ats to pray on jum’ah day (i.e. specified number of Rak’ats after one enters the masjid and before the khutbah), rather what is established is that the number of rak’ats is unrestricted due to the Hadeeth reported by Imaam Muslim (rahimahullaah) in Sahih Muslim- that whoever takes a bath on the day of jum’ah and prays what is decreed for him (i.e. before khutbah begins), keeps quiet until the khutbah finishes, and prays (i.e. with the Imaam), he will be forgiven (i.e. minor sins) from that day of jum’ah to the next Jum’ah….[Ref 1]

After Jum’ah prayer, one prays either two rak’ats [Ref2] or four Rak’ats [Ref 3]

[Ref 1: For further details, see texts of hadeeth in Sahih Muslim Number 857 and the speech of Sh Muhammad Baazmool in [    بغية المتطوع page 121 onwards]

[Ref 2: Hadeeth in Sunan Abu Dawud Number 1/70 & declared authentic by Imaam Albaani (rahimahullaah)]

[Ref 3: Hadeeth reported by Imaam Muslim Number 881]
