The Ruling upon a Rented Building Being a Masjid

Written by troid.org admin on . Posted in Masjid

  Shaykh ʿUbayd ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Jābirī

[Q]: (O Noble Scholar) Allāh has blessed us with a centre which our brothers (community) have rented. All praise is for Allāh, it is the first Salafī centre in which the five daily prayers and the Jumuʿah are established. However, some Salafī brothers say that it is not considered a masjid since we, the community, do not own the building. Based on this, they stopped praying Jumuʿah with us.

The noble Shaykh was asked the following question during a June 2004 tele-link with brothers in Toronto, Canada:

[Q]: (O noble scholar) Allāh has blessed us with a centre which our brothers (community) have rented. All praise is for Allāh, it is the first Salafī centre in which the five daily prayers and the jumuʿah are established. However, some Salafī 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 jumuʿah with us.

[A]: Shaykh ʿʿUbayd al-Jābirī, "Give my salāms to them and let them pray jumuʿah and the jamāʿah (the five daily prayers) with their brothers. Give my salām to them, and my call to them is that (they should) attend, (be with) their brothers and to pray with them, jumuʿah and jamāʿah. This (building) now takes the rulings of a masjid so long as it is rented for the purpose of ṣalāh. It takes the rulings of the masjid, until Allāh paves the way (for you) to have an independent masjid.
