Can one pray in dark room.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Can We pray in a dark room? Can we pray in a dark room even though you have lights available. is there any harm to offer prayers without light... as i have heard that if any one prayers in a dark room his prayers get "Makru" is it True.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Can one pray in dark room
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
To the absolute best of our knowledge, there is nothing in either the Quran or the Sunnah which declares or even implies that ones praying in a room with light has more merit or advantage or rewards than one praying in a dark room.
Rest absolutely assured brother that the validity of the prayer has absolutely no relevance to the amount of light available in the room or place one offers their prayers!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
