Making Jamaat with one’s female household and not going to the Musjid

Q: Will the jamaat with the female household exclude one from all the severe warnings?

A: From the general wording of the hadeeth it will appear that this will not guard him against the warning of leaving out jamaat. Hence, Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had intended to burn the homes of those who did not attend the musjid jamaat salaah. They could have very easily said that they are doing jamaat with their families at home. The sahaabah and the pious of the past did not regard this as a substitute and equivalent for musjid jamaat.

عن أبى هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لقد هممت أن آمر بالصلاة فتقام ثم آمر رجلا فيصلى بالناس ثم أنطلق معى برجال معهم حزم من حطب إلى قوم لا يشهدون الصلاة فأحرق عليهم بيوتهم بالنار (سنن أبي داود رقم 548)

عن ابن عباس قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من سمع المنادى فلم يمنعه من اتباعه عذر قالوا وما العذر قال خوف أو مرض لم تقبل منه الصلاة التى صلى (سنن أبي داود رقم 551)

عن أسامة بن زيد قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم لينتهين رجال عن ترك الجماعة أو لأحرقن بيوتهم (سنن ابن ماجة رقم 795)
