Following the Salaah in the Haram from the hotel jamaat khanas

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In some hotels in Makkah mukarramah, e.g. hilton, zam zam towers, they have jamaat khanas that overlook the Haram shareef. For Jumuah and some salaah when busy, people read Salaah in these following the Imaam in the haram. Is this permissible? The saffs continue past where the hotel is along streets.


A: If the jamaat khana is not part of the Haram in any way nor are the saffs of the Haram Shareef joining up to the saffs of the jamaat khana then this namaaz is invalid.

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