    Title: Congregational Prayer at home

    Question: (1) I have a question regarding praying at home. Recently I have been placed under quarantine order at home due to one my family member had covid 19. So, is it okay to do congregational prayer at home with my mom and sister? Note that I'm the only male at home. And will I get reward of congregational Prayer? (2) Another question: Is there any difference in reward for congregational Prayer at mosque and outside mosque (at home/office)?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (1) Yes! You can offer salah with jamat at home with your mother and real sister. You become the Imam and stand in the front row and your mother and sister will stand behind you in a row. You will get reward of jamat while offering salah in this way.

    (2) You will get reward of jamat while offering salah with jamat outside the mosque at home or in the office. However, you will not get reward of performing Salah in mosque. And praying with jamat in the mosque is twenty-seven times more rewarding.
