Masā’il Pertaining to Individual ‘Ibādah in the Masjid

Following the opening of the masājid for individual ‘ibādah, below are some important Shar‘ī guidelines and rulings to take note of:

1. In principle it is permissible to perform any ṣalāh in the masjid, i.e. Farḍ, wājib, sunnah, nafl, etc

2. It is a general rule that Farḍ ṣalāh in congregation is more rewarding in comparison to performing it individually. Therefore, if one’s circumstances allow one to perform Farḍ ṣalāh at home in congregation then the Farḍ ṣalāh should be performed at home in congregation rather than individually in the masjid. 

3. If one’s circumstances do not allow one to perform Farḍ ṣalāh in congregation at home, then one is at liberty to perform Farḍ ṣalāh at home or in the masjid.

4. However, due to the blessedness of the masjid, it is better to perform one’s individual Farḍ ṣalāh in the masjid rather than at home.

5. If one decides to perform Farḍ ṣalāh in the masjid, one should bear in mind the mustahab and preferable times.

6. It is not permissible to perform any ṣalāh, whether at home or in the masjid, at three times:

a. from sunrise till the sun has completely risen from the horizon (approximately 15 minutes from sunrise)

b. midday (approximately 10 minutes before zawāl i.e zuhr beginning time)

c. before sunset (approximately 15 minutes before sunset)

7. It is not permissible to perform nafl ṣalāh at two times

a. after ṣubh ṣādiq (true dawn) i.e. fajr beginning time till the sun has completely risen.

b. after performing the Farḍ of ‘aṣr ṣalāh until sunset

8. It is permissible to engage in ‘ibādah other than ṣalāh (e.g. tilāwah, dhikr, du‘ā, etc.) throughout the day in the masjid or at home.

9. All ‘ibādah should be carried out in a manner in which others engaged in ‘ibādah are not inconvenienced or disturbed.

10. The sanctity of the masjid should always be upheld, hence one should at all times adhere to the etiquettes, cleanliness, etc. of the masjid.

Fasting is a shield.

The Fasts of Muharram

Sayyidunā Ibn ‘Abbās Radhiyallahu 'anhu says, “I did not see Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam anxiously await the fast of any day, which he gave preference to over other days, but this day, the day of ‘Āshūrā (10th Muharram).” (Al-Bukhārī)

Note: In other Ahādīth Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam has encouraged to fast on the 9th or 11th also.

The 9th and 10th of Muharram will fall on Friday 28th August and Saturday 29th August

The Fasts of Ayyām-ul-Bīdh

Sayyidunā Milhān Al-Qaysī radhiyallahu 'anhu says, “Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam would encourage us to keep the fasts of Bīdh i.e. the 13th, 14th and 15th.” He further says that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam mentioned, “It is equivalent to fasting every day.” (Abū Dāwūd)

The Ayyām-ul-Bīdh will fall on Tuesday 1st, Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd September.

All are advised to make the most of these opportunities and practice upon the sunnah of Rasūlullāh sallāhu 'alayhi wasallam.
