Perform your (voluntary) Salah (prayer) in your homes

Zaid bin Thabit (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu) reported:

The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

“O people! perform your (voluntary) Salat (prayers) in your homes because the best Salat of a man is the one he performs at home, except the obligatory Salat.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

This Hadith tells us that the Nawafil and Sunnah prayers should be performed at home. It goes without saying that all the Fard constituents of every Salat are to be performed in the mosque (Masjid) in congregation. The order to perform the Nawafil prayers at home shows its merits. Firstly, it saves a person from showing off, and secondly, houses are blessed due to them.
