    Title: Ruling for prayer hall

    Question: In our college we have a common prayer hall, where Christian, Hindus also worship in their ways, and we Muslims also offer namaz five times a day with jamat, and whenever there is a coincidence for prayer time with these groups we would offer our namaz outside the room. Even the room doesn't carry any of the belongings of these groups like idols and all, after finishing their work they would carry them with them. At this moment should I get reward for sun-nah way to entering a masjid like steeping right leg in etc? Should I recite the dua of entering and exiting out of masjid in this case also?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 509/531/L=5/1438)

    This place is not a Shariah mosque. The ruling pertaining to enter the right leg before entering and reading the dua is specific only with the Shariah mosque. Hence one should not follow these rules while entering in such places.
