Umm Sadia Prays At Home

Umm Sa’dia (radi Allahu anha) came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said: “O Prophet of Allah! I wish to offer my Salat with you in congregation in the Masjid.” The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied: “I know how much you desire to offer your Salat behind me in congregation, but offering the Salat in the innermost part of your house is better than offering it in your living room, and offering Salat in the living room is better than offering it in your courtyard, and offering Salat in the courtyard is better than offering it in your neighbourhood Masjid, and offering your Salat in the neighbourhood Masjid is better than coming to my Masjid.” [Musnad Ahmed]

In Ibn Khuzaimah, this narration also includes the statement that after Umm Sa’dia heard the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), she set aside a place in the innermost and darkest corner of her house for Salat and offered her Salat there as long as she lived.

For a woman, to offer her Salat at home is even better than offering it in Masjid al-Haraam and Masjid an-Nabawi where offering one Salat is better than offering 100,000 Salats and 50,000 Salats respectively.
