Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan Regarding Masaajid in Rented Buildings in the West

Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan (hafidhullaah) responds to those who claim it is not permissible to use a rented building as a Masjid.

The questioner made it seem like the people were saying that Salat in this rented place is not permissible and that they dont want to make Salat in it at all. Rather the people do not say that. They say that it is not an official Masjid if the building is rented. They don't say it is not permissible to make Salat in a place like that.

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree on the Ruling Upon a Rented Building Used as a Masjid

The Shaykh was asked in June 2004 in a link up with the brothers at TROID, the following question:

Question: (O! Noble scholar), Allaah blessed us with a centre that which our brothers rented. And all praise is for Allaah. It is the first Salafi centre in which the five daily Salaah and Jumu`ah are established. However, some Salafi brothers said that it is not considered to be a Masjid since we don't own the place (i.e. we are renting it). Based on this they stopped praying Jumu`ah with us.

Shaykh Ubayd: Give my salaams to them and let them pray Jumu`ah and Jamaa'ah (5 daily prayers) with their brothers.

Give my salaam to them, and my call to them is that to attend (be with) their brothers and to pray with them Jumu'ah and Jamaa'ah. This (masjid) now takes the rulings of Masjid so long as it is rented for the purpose of Salaah. It takes the rulings of the Masjid, until Allaah paves the way to have independant Masjid.
