    Title: Near to college, in a room, Muslim students offer Zuhr salah in jamah with azan, but due to different times, few students come afterward and they also give azan and offer salah in jamah at the same room

    Question: Near to college, in a room, Muslim students offer Zuhr salah in jamah with azan, but due to different times, few students come afterward and they also give azan and offer salah in jamah at the same room. So, is it allowed to do so at a same place, and also if that room is having any Hindu idol placed in it, is salah valid? What are the possibilities in this case, please focus?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 778/657/B=1433) It is lawful to offer salah in college room after calling azan and iqamah. Students who come late they should offer salah only by saying iqamah, they need not to call azan. If there is any idol or picture placed in the room then salah shall be makrooh tahrimi therein.
