    There is a greater reward when reading with congregation than your own, why miss the chance when it can be done.
    Actually, i don't think there is, if a person is able to do qiyaam in long hours with proper qur'anic tajweed, they might in fact be gaining more by staying away from the congregation. But generally speaking it is better to go as people are not likely to be motivated to do tahajjud at home.

    Nah it is a sunnah. But sunnah is not a MUST as you said before.

    I know Sunnah does not have the same status as Fard, but it is almost Fard when the person is healthy, has the time and has no other excuses for missing out on it. As I said Taraweeh is Sunnah Muakkidah a highly recommended sunnah, missing it out regularly without a valid excuse can lead to a sin. Muslim's nowadays want the easy way out, whatever is the easier option they want to follow even if that means missing out on the practices of the prophet SAW.

    exactly. it really angers me. especially the way I've been asked on here; it's like OMG NO WAY YOU HAVE TO BE ONE OTHERWISE GTFO YOU ARE NOT MUSLIM. SIMPLE

    it's like wth, sometimes things are a bit more complicated than that especially with my circumstances.
    I agree but at the same time, you must be aware of what your family follows then? Different sects are slightly different and even though you class yourself as simply a Muslim, it is hard to be just that, and not be a Muslim who follows a certain theology. I mean, I follow the Sunni one, but I just don't refer to myself as a Sunni as much as I refer to myself as a Muslim. If that makes sense

    Sorry but I'm not that deeply informed about the theologies. I do what's required that should be enough. I'm seriously not going to go into this though.
    Lol, where do you learn what's required? I'll leave you alone as you seem frustrated, but believe me, you do follow an opinion even though you might not be aware of it.

    Ibn `Umar quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: "The reward of salah performed congregation outweighs that of salah performed individually by twenty-seven degrees." (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

    Abu Hurayrah quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: "The prayer of a man in congregation is twenty-five times more superior (in reward) to his prayer in his house or the market – and this is because he makes the wudu' (ablution) and perfects it, and goes to the mosque with the sole intention of performing salah. He does not take a step without being exalted in degree and having one of his sins obliterated. When he prays, as long as his wudu' is still valid, the angels continue to pray [for him]: 'O Allah, bless him. O Allah, bestow Mercy on him.' He is considered as if he is performing salah as long as he is waiting for the salah." (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

    I knew that was coming, those are in reference to the fardh salah. Those that are sunnah however, it is better to perform them alone, i don't know how many people know this but the Prophet saw recommended sunnah prayers to be performed at home, after the congregation, he (saw) used to pray his sunnah after reaching his house.

    :yep: I agree.
    I also read in a few places about it being a sin if it is deliberately ommitted. And just to make sure I just re-checked on an islamic website and it also said that it is Sunnah Muakkidah

    I was suprised by the length of Obama's message to the muslims, it is clearly a political agenda but even so, that was rather an extensive research on Islam by a president.

    Well I was referring to the Fard salaah anyways, in response to someone who said it's okay to also read at home, when in case you'll be missing out on the reward if it is possible to go. Yes I agree though about reading the Sunnah at home.

    It brought a big smile to my face. I'm sure he knew the things already as his dad was a Muslim. He was talking as if he knew all that rather than rehearsed.
