It can only be prayed behind the Imam in mosque.

@irfan Alam This salah is not a mandatory salah it is nafal and it can be prayed at home for there is no proof that it must be offered behind imam, especially in light of the facts that praying it behind a imam was implemented by umar ibn khattab and not the Rasul saws. So I must ask for your textual proof for your statement. Salaam

I told it by my own knowledge. If its wrong then Ya Allah forgive me. I will clarify with my Mufti Sir then I will reply again...

Salam. Is an optional prayer, but is strongly recommended to pray it in the masjid. However, it is permissible for you to pray it at home. You won't get any sins for missing it or for not praying it at the masjid, just more reward if you do go.

Hope this helps. Allah knows best
