Is it Permissible to Pray in a Multi-Faith Prayer Room – Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jābirī (hafiẓahullāh) Answers

Translated by Abū ‘Abdillaah Hassan as Somaali

The question is, in some places you find, like the airport a place of prayer, amusallah which is mushtariq, which is shared for the Christians and the Muslims and others, so is it permissible for the Muslim to pray in the likes of this place whilst upon his journey?

So the Shaykh said;

This place will either fall into one of two things. He said firstly, that in this place there is present the religious activities or religious signs of the Christians that will confuse the one who is praying from his Ṣalāt. He said then in this situation, this type of place then you cannot pray in it, and he said that the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘The ‘ard, (the earth) has been made a Masjid for me, and likewise a purifier’. So if the prayer arrives and one of you finds that the time of the prayer has come then you should pray wherever you are. Secondly that this place is empty; it doesn’t have any of their religious signs present, then the Muslim he can pray in this place if this is the case. He said, and he gave an example: like if there is a clear cross, then the person shouldn’t pray in this type of area, and he said whatever the case, it’s better if you can pray if there is another place you can use to pray then it’s better.
