Performing Salaah on the bare floor

Q: When praying at home where you are certain that there is no najaasat on the floor, will it be ok to pray directly on the floor? Or is it still better to use a prayer rug?


A: If the floor is clean, one can perform Salaah on the floor or on a Musallah.

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