Question

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakathuhu
My home is far away from masjid, usually adhaan I will not be audible in my home,Am I obliged to pray in masjid? I know the adhaan and salaat times. it will take 5 minutes to go masjid in vehicle. Will I get extra rewards I pray in masjid

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

There is a great reward for praying in the mosque. In any case, you are rewarded if you go to the mosque to pray in it.

You are obliged to pray in congregation, even if it is in your house, with one of your family members. By doing so, you are acquitted from sin.

Nonetheless, your going to the mosque is better and greater in reward, as there is a great reward in populating the Mosques of Allah.

Allah Knows best.
