Asalam-o-Alaikum My dear brothers,
The country I currently live in does not allow for a Call to prayers to be made, therefore according to the below hadith, is my prayer Invalid at home or is it valid because i could not hear the call to prayer?
It was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever hears the call to prayer and does not come, there is no prayer for him [i.e., his prayer is not valid], unless he has an excuse.” Narrated by Ibn Maajah, al-Daaraqutni, Ibn Hibbaan and al-Haakim with a saheeh isnaad. It was said to Ibn ‘Abbaas, what is an excuse? He said, Fear or sickness.
I know that I will receive much greater deeds if I pray in a mosque and in congregation but this is very difficult in this country.
just to re-assure my heart, am I doing wrong by praying at home?
