Our Brother is unable to unwilling to consider the following differences:
4th is extremely important and Jazakallahu Khayran for pointing it out.
Due to lack of distinction, he lumps all of the above in a single category and then issues summary judgements and points out contradictions which are not as clear as his mind sees.
Anybody else should see the distinctions and then call for improvements for our Sisters. I have vocally and clearly advocated a rethink on this issue, nevertheless I strongly disagree with this Brother’s method of lumping everything in a single basket and treating everything as the same, when it isn’t!
Your query is based on a false understanding and inability to distinctly identify different strands of an issue. If someone proceeds with answering your queries without first clearly highlighting the errors which led to the queries it will be nothing but an exercise in futility.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
A MOSQUE in Islam is a special designated building clearly, deliberately and exclusively made for acts of worship. The foundation of this designation is in various verses of the Qur’aan and Ahadeeth, for example:
[9:18] The mosques of Allah are only to be maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and establish prayer and give zakah and do not fear except Allah , for it is expected that those will be of the [rightly] guided.
There are acts which CANNOT be done anywhere else but in this designated area for example Aitekaaf and it is in various verses of the Qur’aan and Ahadeeth, for example:
Narrated by 'Aisha (RA) The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to (put) bend his head (out) to me while he was in Itikaf in the mosque during my monthly periods and I would comb and oil his hair. [Bukhari]
Salah can be performed on any place on Earth and not exclusively in a Mosque. Any pace, any building, any garden, any park, any room can be used for this purpose (provided that it is clean).
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The earth has been made for me a place of prayer and purification, so whenever the time of prayer comes for any man of my ummah, let him pray. [Bukhari]
But just because you have prayed in a room or a building it DOES NOT make it a MOSQUE! There is no Scholar (to my knowledge) who has stated that a place of worship becomes a MOSQUE but each MOSQUE is a Place of worship.
For example I am at work and I will go into a Meeting room and pray and others also use this (Meeting) room but it is NOT a MOSQUE. It remains a (Meeting) room.
If you disagree with any of this provide your evidence.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
