Prayer room used by people of different religions

Question ID: 27157


I work at a company that employees over 200 people all of different faiths. The owners (Non-muslim) kindly set up a special room for prayer (Prayer room) for all those who wish to pray.

To my knowledge only Muslims perform salaah their (females), and I not anyone of the other religious faiths.
When I asked some if they were to use the prayer room will they burn aggarbati and lubaan (for the Hindus), they said no. No idols or any religious signs are in the Room. But know I think that the others are taking interest in the Prayer Room…so I would like to know, could I still read my salaah there even if someone (non Muslim) during some part of the day prayed there at a different time.

If you need any clarity in this please let me know

Salaat will be valid but it is not good.

Have a memorandum of understanding, that no religious signs or symbols of any religion will be allowed to be displayed by any religious grouping.
