Answer:

 

Prayer in congregation obligatory

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: I have heared from my friends that if a man offer his prayer in house than it is not acceptable he should go in Mosque,


Performing the obligatory prayers in congregation is a Sunnah Mu'akkadah (absolutely preferred Sunnah) of the Messenger of Allah (saws) for the believing males of the Ummah.

 

Ibn 'Umar reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "Prayer in congregation is superior to a prayer performed individually by twenty-seven degrees."

Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

 

It would obviously be preferred and best that the believers offer their obligatory prayers in congregation in the Mosques; and if that is not possible for a valid reason, then the next best thing is to offer it in congregation with the brothers wherever one is; and if even that is not possible, the absolute last legal option is to offer it alone.

 

Your Question: even in Islam there is an order for a man that if he wants to recite Quran then he would have to go in Mosque

One may recite or study the Glorious Quran wherever and whenever one wills, provided the place where one recites it or the person who recites is pure from major impurities. There is absolutely no condition or obligation in Islam that one may recite the Quran only in the Mosques; one who is pure from major impurities may recite it whenever and wherever one wills and pleases.

 

Your Question: One more thing he told me some Ahadith in which Hazarat Muhammad (P.BU.H)said about those men who offer their prayer in house that "if those have no children and women in their home than i would burn their houses who offer their prayer in home not in Mosque.

Abu Hurairah also reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "By Him in whose Hand is my soul! I have considered ordering a fire to be kindled and then ask someone to lead the people in salah, and then go to the men [who did not attend the prayer in congregation] and burn their houses over them!"

Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.626 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the 'Isha' prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl." The Prophet (saw) added, "Certainly I decided to order the Mu'adhdhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer, and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer, along with their houses!"

 

If one, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, only contemplates on the above words of the Messenger of Allah (saws), about whom Allah Subhanah Himself Declares in His Quran We sent you not (O Mohamed (saws)), except as a Mercy to all the worlds (21:107); one would realize how much importance the Prophet (saws) gave to the obligatory prayers being performed in congregation in the Mosques! Unless and until one has an extremely valid reason to leave performing the obligatory prayers in congregation in the Mosques, it would not behove and befit a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to do so.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

 

Burhan
