Ask an Alim

I understand that a house that has music playing, its residents prayers are not accepted. can I pray in my garage

Q:

i understand that a house that has music playing, its residents prayers are not accepted. can I pray in my garage, its detached from my house. would this be ok and allow my prayers to be accepted?

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.

Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

Jurisprudentially praying in a place where music is played does not in itself invalidate the prayer. However, the more pure and the more spiritual a place is, the more benefit you get as an individual from the prayer.
