4. One should ensure that he performs his five daily salaah on their prescribed times. Men should perform all their salaah in the musjid with jamaat and women should perform their salaah at home.

عن عبد الله ابن مسعود أنه كان يقول: من سره أن يلقى الله عز وجل غدا مسلما فليحافظ على هؤلاء الصلوات الخمس حيث ينادى بهن فإن الله عز وجل شرع لنبيه صلى الله عليه وسلم سنن الهدى وإنهن من سنن الهدى وإني لا أحسب منكم أحدا إلا له مسجد يصلي فيه في بيته فلو صليتم في بيوتكم وتركتم مساجدكم لتركتم سنة نبيكم ولو تركتم سنة نبيكم لضللتم

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu anhu) would say, “Whoever wishes to meet Allah Ta’ala tomorrow (i.e. on the Day of Qiyaamah) as a Muslim, he should guard his five daily salaah through performing them at a place where the azaan is called out (i.e. the musjid). Allah has prescribed for His Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) Sunan-e-Huda (such acts of worship which are guidance for you through and through), and verily these (i.e. performing the fardh salaah in the musjid) are from the Sunan-e-Huda (i.e. the prescribed acts of worship in Deen). I do not know of any of you who does not have an area in his home reserved for performing (nafl) salaah. If you perform the fardh salaah in your homes and abandon your musjids, you will be discarding the emphasized sunnah of your Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), and as soon as you will abandon his sunnah, you will certainly go astray.”

عن عبد الله بن سويد الأنصاري عن عمته أم حميد امرأة أبي حميد الساعدي أنها جاءت الى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقالت: يا رسول الله إني أحب الصلاة معك قال: قد علمت أنك تحبين الصلاة معي وصلاتك في بيتك خير من صلاتك في حجرتك وصلاتك في حجرتك خير من صلاتك في دارك وصلاتك في دارك خير من صلاتك في مسجد قومك وصلاتك في مسجد قومك خير من صلاتك في مسجدي قال: فأمرت فبني لها مسجد في أقصى شيء من بيتها وأظلمه وكانت تصلي فيه حتى لقيت الله جل وعلا (صحيح ابن حبان، الرقم: 2217)

Hazrat Ummu Humaid (radhiyallahu anha), the wife of Hazrat Abu Humaid As-Saa’idi (radhiyallahu anhu), once came to Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), I long to perform salaah behind you.” Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied, “I am aware that you long and desire to perform salaah behind me. However, your salaah in the inner portion of your bedroom is more rewarding than your salaah in your bedroom. Your salaah in your bedroom is more rewarding than your salaah in any other part of your home. Your salaah in your home is more rewarding than your salaah in the musjid of your locality. Your salaah in the musjid of your locality is more rewarding than your salaah in my musjid (i.e. Musjid Nabawi).” Hazrat Ummu Humaid (radhiyallahu anha) (in obedience and compliance with the mubaarak desire of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)) instructed that a small place be reserved for her salaah in the innermost and darkest portion of her bedroom, and she would devotedly perform all her salaah there until the end of her life.
