Salah
Salah
Voluntary prayers in the house are more virtuous than in the Masjid because of the following:

 

1. Secret. Praying voluntary prayers in the house is staying away from showing-off and causing people to be impressed. It is also a way to conceal actions from people. This is a principle in optional acts of worship that they should be done in secret.
 
2. Serenity. Praying voluntary prayers in the house is a cause for complete serenity and sincerity.
 
3. Mercy. Praying voluntary prayers in the house establishes the remembrance of Allah and prayer therein; this causes the descent of mercy upon the residents of the house, and this causes the devil to stay far way. Bani Israeel were commanded to make their houses places of praying Salaah when they were suffering under Pharaoh.
 
4. Graveyard. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: ‘Perform some of your prayers in your homes, and do not turn them into graveyards (i.e. a place where prayer is not performed.’ (Bukhari) The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam is reported to have performed optional prayers at home.
 
5. Extra Reward. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: ‘The voluntary prayer of a man where people do not see him is worth twenty-five times more than in a place where people would see him.’ (al- Jaami as-Sagheer)
