THE PLACE OF SALAAT

CLASS 5 - LESSON 15
THE PLACE OF SALAAT
Islam teaches us that we have to respect the things which belong to others,
and that we should not use them without the owner’s permission.
The above rule has to be remembered at all times especially when you want to
perform your Salaat.
The place where you intend to pray must either be yours or you must have the
permission of the owner to use it
If the place does not belong to you and you do not have the permission of the owner
to use it then your Salaat is Batil.
Of course, if you go to Masjid (mosque), you do not need anyone’s permission to
perform your Salaat in there.
WHY? Because……
MASJID IS THE HOUSE OF ALLAH,
IT IS BUILT FOR PRAYING TO ALLAH
Also remember that Allah wants us to pray in a clean place. Therefore always keep
your room clean and Tahir. If you have a musalla in your room, always fold it after
praying and keep it in a place where it will remain Tahir and clean.
The following conditions must be observed for the Place of Salaat
�� Salaat can only be offered in someone's place with their permission. (Mubah)
�� The place where you perform your Sajdah must be Tahir. Where you stand or sit
while performing Salaat can be Najis, as long as there is no possibility that this
Najasat will effect your body or clothes.
�� You cannot offer your Salaat in a place where you are not sure you will be able
to complete your Salaat or that there is a possibility of danger to your life, for
example on a busy road in the rush hour.
�� The place where you pray must not be unstable, like on a bed or a couch.
�� There should be enough space to stand and perform Rukuu and Sajdah
properly.
�� If women and men are praying in the same room, then the women must stand
behind the men. The minimum difference should be that her place of Sajdah be
at least in line with his thighs during Sajdah. It is better that there be a curtain or
wall in between.
�� The place where the head is kept for Sajdah must not be 4 fingers joined
together above or below the place where the knees and toes are put.
