Question # : 49205

Saudi Arabia

Q3. I want to make my room a masjid as you suggested in your lecture establishing an Islamic environment and me and my sister share the same room, I asked her but she is not convinced as we use internet in our room and pictures come on the internet and mosques should not have tasavir, and if I select a corner of my room for the masjid then there will still be pictures? So in that case can I make a small corner for masjid?
And second thing we also eat and sleep in our room can, if I make a masjid then can we eat and sleeping it?
And thirdly when we are in periods can we stay my room which I am going to make masjid, as women in menstruation cannot enter masjids so please suggest!

(Fatwa: 24/30/L=01/1435)

It is mustahab to specify a place in one’s home for worship.
قوله فى مسجد بيتما وهوالمعد لصلاتها الذى يندب لها ولكل أحد اتخاذه كما فى البزارية . نهر . و مقتضاه أنه يندب الرجل أيضاً أن يخصص موضعاً من بيته لصلاته النافلة (شامى: 3/429)
You may fix one corner of your room for prayer etc rather it is mustahab. However, the place shall not carry the ruling of Shariah masjid; hence it shall be lawful for you to eat, drink, sleep and stay in the state of haiz in that room.

Allah knows Best!
