Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Sometimes the time for prayer comes and I am in the house of one of the Christians, so I take my prayer mat and pray in front of them. Is my prayer valid even though I am in one of their houses?

Praise be to Allaah.
Yes, your prayer is valid. May Allaah make you even more keen to obey Him, especially with regard to performing the five daily prayers on time. It is the Muslim’s duty to try to pray them in congregation, and to pray them in the mosque whenever possible.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
