Rewards of Praying at a Mosque | Penny Appeal
Many children attend Madrassah classes to learn about and connect with their faith. Mosques are a pivotal part of faith that comes with great reward. For some, it’s a community centre to meet friends and local loved ones. For others, it’s a sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The first Mosque
“Whoever purifies himself in his house, then comes to the mosque of Quba and prays there, he will have a reward like the Umrah pilgrimage,” the Prophet (ufdfa) said.
The rewards in the Quran and Hadith
The reward for a prayer offered in congregation is 27 times greater than for a prayer offered alone. “He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of Allah’s houses (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat.”
The Mosque Project
Over 8,153,600 prayers have been prayed in our mosques over the last ten years, and the number is growing every day; you can be a part of this and build your house in Jannah with Sadaqah Jariyah, on-going charity that benefits you even after you leave this world.
Do you pray in a mosque?
The simplest mosque would be a prayer room with a wall marked with a “mihrab” u2013 a niche indicating the direction of Mecca, which Muslims should face when praying u2013 and it could also be used to house schools and community centers.
Can Muslims pray to God?
(While there is a prayer leader in the mosque – the imam – he is not a priest, but rather a person who knows a lot about Islam.) Muslims pray directly to God.

In Islam, God is never depicted in any image, and the Qur’an expressly forbids ascribing partners to share His singular sovereignty, because He is the absolute one, without a second, indivisible, and incomparable being who is comparable to nothing.
Can you pray to Allah anywhere?
The Qur’an teaches that the entire world is a mosque, so Muslims can pray anywhere; the important thing is to remember Allah by worshipping him five times a day.
Can a woman wear pants to a mosque?
Wear modest, loose-fitting clothing; men should wear long pants, and women should wear pants, full-length skirts or dresses with long sleeves. Non-Muslim women are encouraged to wear a headscarf in the prayer hall, which can be provided upon request.

Although the majority of Muslims consider alcohol to be haram (forbidden or sinful), a sizable minority consumes it, and those who do frequently outdrink their Western counterparts. Chad and a number of other Muslim-majority countries lead the world in alcohol consumption.
Do Muslims believe in reincarnation?
In light of this, the Quran rejects the concept of reincarnation, despite preaching the existence of the soul. The fundamental belief in Islam is that there is only one birth on this planet, and that after death, one will be judged as to whether they should go to hell or be reunited with God once and for all.
What is the difference between God and Allah?

Allah is most frequently referred to in the Quran with the pronouns Hu or Huwa, which, while commonly translated as “him,” can also be translated gender-neutrally as “them,” as is the case with the feminine equivalent, Hiya. Quran 112:3u20134 states: “He begets not, nor is He begotten.”
Can you make dua whenever you want?
Make dua whenever you want; don’t let these ultra-strict voices stop you from doing legitimate worship; it’s not required after every prayer, but it’s also not wrong; I heard a while ago that doing dua after every fard (obligatory) salah is considered bida’h.
Can I make dua whenever?
Method 1 of 3: When to Make Dua. Make dua before or after prayer (salah), or at any time during it. Some people believe it is appropriate to make dua at any time during prayer, including before or after it, but in any case, each of the five daily salah provides a perfect opportunity to make dua.
Can you pray anywhere?
Any Christian can pray anywhere at any time, and if Christians are allowed to do so, others will be allowed to do so as well. Christian students, I encourage you to pray without ceasing, as God’s Word commands, but don’t make a show of it. God will hear you if you pray earnestly.
