The whole earth is a mosque

The Prophet (peace and blessings of God be upon him) said:

“The whole earth has been made a mosque (or a place of prayer) and a means of purification for me, so wherever a man of my ummah may be when the time for prayer comes, let him pray.”

(Sahih Bukhari, 335)

  1. So Muslims can pray in a brothel then I guess?

    • Psalms 66:4 “All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name..”

      Do you guess that a brothel worships your God from the above verse?

    • What would a Muslim be doing in a brothel in the first place? Why would they go out of their way to enter a brother to pray. I know its hard but try and be less moronic. Trust a pagan paulian to resort to such filth.

    • Why don’t you start praying? Learn to walk before you try to run.

    • Hello Indian.

      Re Ps 66:4

      “All the earth shall worship thee – That is, all the inhabitants of the world will bow down before thee, or render thee homage”

      A sample reading of any commentary will reveal that earth is a reference to people, not a geographical place. Nice try though.

      Now, how about your hadith- can those inside a brothel pray to your god? You see, your prophet Muhammad clearly had a geographical mindset with that Hadith, completely unlike the psalm you tried to deflect to.

      So please do attempt to be a good da’ee and answer the question.

    • Thirsty my pal, I lived in a Muslim majority country for many a year and have a guess who frequented the brothels and their religion? So my question is completely valid- can your co religionists complete their prayers inside the brothel? Apparently, Muhammad thinks so…

      Who frequents brothels in Christian majority countries?

    • I think in order to understand the hadith,we need to have some common sense at least.

    • Agree. So if your prophet is not meant to be taken literally, where should Muslims pray, I.e not the whole earth?

    • Paulus,

      You said “A sample reading of any commentary will reveal that earth is a reference to people, not a geographical place. Nice try though.”

      So you qualified ‘all the earth’ as people from the commentaries. Then why not learn which places are forbidden for prayer as well from the other hadiths ? I’m not a da’ee and your dumb question only merited that response.
