Reward of congregational prayer even not in mosque


assalamu alaikum can we get a reward of 27 rakhas when we pray in a office .? because we cant leave the office to pray in masjid?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

You must be referring to the superiority of the congregational prayer over the individual prayer by 27 degrees (27 times); one gets this reward when he performs the prayer in congregation whether this is in the mosque or at the work place.

You should know that in principle the congregational prayer should be in the mosque, but if there is a sound excuse, then it is permissible to perform it at the work place. However, a Muslim should be keen on performing the prayer in congregation in the mosque as much as possible.

Allaah Knows best.
