Midmorning prayer at home or in the mosque?

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed
Translated by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad

Is it better to pray the midmorning prayer at the masjid or in the home?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It is better to perform the midmorning prayer in the masjid than in the home, as al-Badr al-Zarkashi said and confirmed by the late scholars of the school”.

Shaykh al-Islam Zakariyya said in his commentary on the Rawd, when mentioning which supererogatory prayers are recommended to be prayed in the masjid, “Al-Zarkashi said, including the midmorning prayer, because of the hadith as related by Abu Dawud.”


السؤال : هل الأفضلُ فعل صلاة الضحى في المسجد أم البيت ؟
الجواب : فعلُ صلاة الضحى في المسجد أفضلُ من فعلها في البيت كما قاله البدرُ الزركشي وأقرُّوه ، قال شيخُ الإسلام زكريا في “شرح الروض” ذاكراً ما يستحب من
النوافل في المسجد ما نصه :” قال الزركشي وصلاةُ الضحى لخبر رواه أبو داود “.اهـ
