Missing Salah With Jamah

Asalamualaikum Hazrat. 

I wanted to confirm if I am sinful for not performing my Fajar salah at the mosque.

I start work from 10am until 8pm, so when I get up for salah, I’m really tired, and during the week-days when I got work, I don’t go to the mosque because I am too lazy, sleep, and tired. I also don’t want my lack of sleep not to affect my work commitments/progress.

My questions:

  1. Am, I sinfuk?
  2. Do, I still get the reward for the salah without it being makruh even though I did not go to the mosque?

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

In Islamic Shari‘ah, missing salah with jamah without a Shar‘ai excuse has been rebuked in the ahadith of Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam. Making a habit of missing salah with jamah and offering it at home is incorrect and you should try your utmost best to go to the mosque for fajr salah.

By offering salah at home, one will get the reward for the salah but will surely miss the reward which is promised for offering salah with jamah.
