Where can Muslims offer salah? It is highly recommended to offer salah in the mosque. When we pray in mosques it serves many benefits because we are praying in the House of Allah. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) encouraged Muslims to build mosques. When we pray in the mosque we will pray in congregation and the rewards for this are higher. Plus it helps establish and strengthens the community.
If we can’t pray in a mosque for whatever reason, then we can pray anywhere. The condition is that it should be a pure and clean place. If you are outside playing a sport or in a parking lot, then you can pray. Make sure that the spot where you make sujood is free from any impurity such as urine and feces.
From the wisdom of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “the earth was made as a masjid.” So we can pray anywhere on Earth as long as there are no impurities.
We must remember as well that we have to direct our salah in the direction of the Kabah. You can find out the qibla these days via apps no matter where you are.
