In an environment (house) where the woman is of a Christian faith (Catholic) and has crosses around the premises, how can a Muslim man perform his salat's? Is this allowed? Or is the Muslim prohibited from praying in such an area?

May Allah SWT guide us all. Ameen.

  • Corollary question: can a muslim husband allow his wife to decorate the home with idols?

  • Not sure I follow? - they are just crosses with no idols on them Commented Oct 15, 2016 at 5:18
  • Honestly i live in a deep catholic region but crosses in houses seem to me an exception so your scenario is far away from reality. Maybe a cross on the wall in some room is more realistic.

  • An idol in islam isn't just a figure of a god being worshiped, it's any object that is worshiped or represents something that is worshiped other than allah. I was always under the impression a cross qualifies as an idol, whether there is a sculpture of jesus on it or not.

    No what i mean is: the man in islam is in charge of his wife and family. The solution to stay together in such a situation is to have at least one special room. However many scholars on fatwa sites would support the idea of imposing yourself your relugious views etc. on your non-Muslim wife.

Yes, it is. That is why it is permissible to marry people of the book. You should pray just like you pray in normal circumstances.
