I stay far from the masjid, more than a kilometer away. Myself and my brother made an experiment whereby my brother started calling Adhan from the house while I was at a place between the masjid and the house but I did not hear his calling thereby I was satisfied that making swalah at the masjid wasn’t compulsory for me. I was then advised to ask. What is your opinion knowing that (in the experiment we did) the calling was in the night and the place I tried to listen to the calling from was almost between the house and the masjid and also my brother shouted? May you please tell me if it is wajib (compulsory) or nafil (supererogatory)?
هل يجب الصلاة في المسجد؟
