Going to a musjid that is far from one’s house

Q: There is no masjid which pray namaz as per the true Sunnah method in our area. The nearest masjid is almost 14 km away. The nearest masjid follows Hanafi Fiqh. What should I do; should I pray alone at home or I got to the Hanafi masjid and pray as per Sunnah method?


A: You should visit the musjid. If you cannot visit the musjid for all your salaah then at least some salaah of the day or night should be in the musjid.

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