It's better to pray with others plus it's more reward

in our family we only get to pray fajr and maghrib together. The rest we pray on our own.

Assalamu Alaikum

When it is the holidays all my family pray together and in school days my two Brother go to Madrasa (separate ones) so therefore I pray with my Mother and sometimes my Sister and if my Mother had finished before I began my Salah then I read it on my own.

Assalamu Alaikum

Assalaam Alaykum.


Prophet Muhammed(saw) said it is better to pray with family or with other people rather than yourself. It is sunnah. That is why it is soooo important for the brothers to go to Friday congregational prayer. I leave you with this thought insha'Allah.

Allahu 'Alm (and Allah knows best)

BarakAllahu Feekum.

Sunnah is the following of the Prophet Muhammed(saw) which is recorded in the Hadith or Ahadeeth=(plural for Hadith) So whenever you hear 'Sunnah' it was what the Prophet Muhammed(saw) did or what is commended by him.

No problem dear sister :)


Hadith is a reported statement,action, or approval of the Prophet Muhammed(saw). Aswell as his character and his physical desciption.


We know the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) by way of the hadith. The word “sunnah” literally means a set of practices or a mode of behavior. Like the Qur’ân, the Sunnah is revelation that Allah revealed to His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and like the Qur’ân, it has been meticulously preserved. However, unlike the Qur’ân, it is not the direct, literal word of Allah.



  • It is obligatory for Muslims to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). First of all, it is revelation from Allah who says about His Prophet Muhammad: “He does not speak of his own desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him.” [Sûrah al-Najm:3]

So if a female is leading the prayer, obviously for females only...the prayer is more rewarded as opposed to praying on your own?

  • [First of all, it is revelation from Allah who says about His Prophet Muhammad: “He does not speak of his own desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him.” [Sûrah al-Najm:3]

Allah did not promise to protect the hadith from corruption.

If you read the verse you have quoted in its context, you will see that the 'inspiration' is clearly referring to the Qur'anic revelation.


It's sad that even new Muslims are being told such misinterpretations.

Salamu alaikum,

I pray on my own, got noone else to pray with *sniff*. I could try and get my cat to join in I guess...:okay:

Anyway, I was wondering, I heard there is a hadith that says if someone avoids Jummah (intentionally) for three weeks then Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) closes his heart....is this applicable for men and women? I'm guessing it's sunnah for men to attend Jummmah, is it the same for women, or is it recommended for women???

Thanks,

Salam:)

when I was young we used to pray together me and my siblings.. then I abandoned prayer, religion in the entirety of my teenage yrs, when I went to college, eh I'd do it sometimes and let it go alot.. when I went to grad school (lived on my own) started to pray then fully but also by myself. I am not sure I'd like to pray with or around people.. on occasion my 2 year old niece will barge in on me grab something to cover her head even a diaper and look at me and immitate, it almost makes me want to burst out in laughter (astghfor Allah)..

I think the importance of togetherness in prayer is to establish the habit of it, but honestly as one grows older, I can't imagine praying along with someone else, it would probably lose its solemnity for me.. but I appreciate it on tarawee7, Ramadan, 3eed, those sorts of grand days..

We usually pray fajr, maghrib, and isha together. I pray dhur at school, and asr alone at home, since everyone always has their own schedule at that time.

It varies depending on if it is the weekdays or weekend. During the week, my husband & I usually pray Fajr, Mahgrib and Isha together because during the time for Dhuhr and Asr he is at his office and I am home. However on weekends, we pray most prayers together.

Salam,
