Rulings and Etiquettes specific to the Houses of Allaah (masaajid), the most beloved places to Allaah Subhana'.
By Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee
An important answer from Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee, the noble scholar from Madeenah, concerning the discouragement of some regarding building masaajid in the West.
The Noble Scholar, Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee
Answered by al-'Allaaamah 'Ubayd Ibn 'Abdullaah al-Jaabiree
[Q]: (O noble scholar) Allaah has blessed us with a centre which our brothers (community) have rented. All praise is for Allaah, it is the first salafee centre in which the five daily prayers and the jumu'ah are established. However, some salafee brothers said that it is not considered to be a masjid since we, the community do not own the building. Based on this, they stopped praying jumu'ah with us.
By al-'Allaaamah Muhammad Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhaab al-Bannaa
[Q]: Here in the West, we live in cities where there are no salafee masaajid. Al-hamdulilah, the salafee brothers are gathered there to use a facility as a masjid, some of them have lease terms for many years. In the masjid, the salawaat (prayers) are established five times a day, salaatul-jumu'ah and a designated Imaam (is present). Unfortunately, some of our brothers say that this facility is not considered a masjid because the building is not owned by the Muslims, and as such, they do not make tahiyatul-masjid (the two-unit prayer of greeting the masjid) and they pray the jumu'ah prayers with others who are not salafees (since they don't consider this building to be a masjid).
