“I had considered ordering for the prayer to be established, then I would order every man to pray and set loose men who have with them logs of wood upon a people who did not come to the prayer and I would burn their houses with the fire.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

This clearly indicates that there is no excuse for men to make a congregation at home if they have a Masjid near them and it is possible for them to pray in one.....

6 Virtues of praying at the Musjid 
The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: 

The effort of Dawah & Tabligh is a non-profit non-political transnational religious movement. The movement primarily aims at Islamic spiritual reformation by working at the grass roots level, reaching out to Muslims across all social and economic spectra to bring them closer to the practices of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).

The effort of Dawah & Tabligh exclusively focuses on making Muslims 'better and purer' and always inviting each and every human being in the world irrespective of their colour, caste, creed, sex or regional variations.

Important Virtues of the Musjid

Allah SWT says: The example of those who spend their property in the way of Allah is as that of a grain growing seven ears (with) a hundred grains in every ear; and Allah multiplies for whom He pleases; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing [2:261]

Allah SWT says:The mosques of Allah shall be visited and maintained by such as believe in Allah and the Last Day, establish regular prayers, and practice regular charity, and fear none (at all) except Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance. [9:18]

Rasulullah (Sallellahu Alihe Wassalam) said, ‘Whosoever builds a house (Masjid) for the pleasure of Allah, whether it be small or large, Allah builds for him a house in paradise.’(at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaymah, Ibn Hibban, Abu Dawud, and Ahmad)

Uthman (RA) said, I heard the Rasulullah (Sallellahu Alihe Wassalam) said: "Whoever builds a Masjid, desiring thereby Allah's pleasure, Allah builds for him the like of it in Paradise."(Bukhari: Vol 8, Chapter 65)

It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah(RA) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded that mosques should be built among the houses (i.e., in each neighbourhood), and that they should be cleaned and perfumed.” (narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 594; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 279).

The Blessed Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Whosoever removes adhaa (anything repulsive or harmful) from the Masjid, Allah will make a house for him in Jannah.” (Ibn Majah)

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) passed by a grave and asked his companions about it. His companions replied it is the grave of Umm Muhjan. The Prophet (S) rebuked them because they did not inform him of her death and then prayed the funeral prayer over her. He then said: ‘Why did you not inform me?’ They replied- you were sleeping and we did not like to wake you’. The Prophet prayed for her and had great respect for her as she used to spend her efforts in cleaning the house of Allah and the Prophet’s masjid.” (Related by Muslim)

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that a black man (or a black woman) used to clean the mosque, and he died. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) asked about him, and they said that he had died. He said, “Why did you not tell me? Show me his grave.” (Or he said, “her grave.”) So he went to her grave and offered the funeral prayer for her. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 458; Muslim, 956).

Ibn Hajar said in Fath al-Baari, “The hadeeth indicates the virtue of cleaning the mosque, inquiring after servants and after friends if they are absent.”

"Spitting in the Masjid is a sin and its expiation is clean it." When the prophet (S.A.W.) saw a spit in the Masjid, he used to remove it with a stone. The companions of the prophet (S.A.W.) used keep the Masjid clean. Imam Abu Dawod reported that Abdullah bin Omar (R.A.) used to put perfume inside the Masjid when Omar (R.A.) sat on the Minbar to deliver Friday speech.
