Performing Salaah at home when there is a severe downpour

Q: In the UK the weather is often cold and wet and I am a young teenager. Sometimes I want to go to pray salah with the jamaat but due to the weather my mother stops me fearing that I will become ill. Shall I disobey her and fulfil Allah Ta’ala’s command or obey her and read at home? Would I get a sin for not obeying my mother or missing salah with jamat?


A: If it is a severe downpour then you rather perform your namaaz at home.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
