When you reach the day of judgment Allah will put in a balance your bad things in one side and your good things in the other side. Hassanates are among the good things, every good act from you to human, to animal etc...generate hassanates like good credits (or good points) that will play in your favor in the day of judgment. These hassanates will offset part of your bad acts.

Abu Dawud, Book 002, Hadith Number 0553.

Narrated By Ibn Umm Maktum (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) : Apostle of Allah (Sallal Laahu Ta'ala Alayhi Wa Sallam), there are many venomous creatures and wild beasts in Medina (so allow me to pray in my house because I am blind). The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Ta'ala Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: Do you hear the call, "Come to prayer", "Come to salvation"? (He said: Yes.) Then you must come.

there was one more source for this hadith explaining it in details

Sahabi E Rasool Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam came to the Prophet Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. This Sahabi was blind. So he asked the Noble Prophet Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam if he can read namaz at home. He said no. Even though this Sahabi lived far away. Nabi E Kareem Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam told hyim to get a rope and and tie one end to the msoque and one to his house. Whenever he wants to come to the mosque then he should follow this rope.

Abu Dawud, Book 002, Hadith Number 0551.

Narrated By Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) : If anyone hears him who makes the call to prayer and is not prevented from joining the congregation by any excuse (he was asked what an excuse consisted of and replied that it was fear or illness) the prayer he offers will not be accepted from him.

Abu Dawud, Book 002, Hadith Number 0547.

Narrated By Abu Darda' (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) : I heard the Apostle of Allah (Sallal Laahu Ta'ala Alayhi Wa Sallam) say: If there are three men in a village or in the desert among whom prayer is not offered (in congregation), the devil has got the mastery over them. So observe (prayer) in congregation), for the wolf eats only the straggling animal. Sa'ib (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) said: By the word Jama'ah he meant saying prayer in company or in congregation.

all my answers to your questions was in the first hadith itself. u can make out that there is no reason to offer SALAH at home but then to for clearing your doubts more properly I mentioned the other two hadith. so I conclude that u should NOT OFFER SALAH AT HOME when there is no problem or suffering...if u are free and have no problem then U MUST OFFER YOUR SALAH AT MOSQUE...!!!

vote or award points to my answer if you are satisfied..! u can even leave me with a feedback..! BARAKALLAH FEEKUM...!!!

A. Present-day working conditions are so different from what used to be the case in old days. Therefore, scholars of past generations may have said certain things about prayer which may not be easily applicable today. If people in an office arrange their own congregational prayer, when prayer falls during working hours, that is perfectly appropriate, even though a mosque is close by. No matter how close the mosque is, going there takes more time. If this can be accommodated with the needs of the work, then it is fine for the employees to go there. But if prayer in the office is more convenient, or even more suited to the requirements of the work, it is better to pray there. When the Prophet preached his message in the fortieth year of his life, there was not any specific building for offering prayers. The early Muslims used to perform their prayers in the narrow alleys of Mecca or beside the Kabah under the leadership of Umar. In other words, any place for prostration before God was considered as a Masjid (place for sujud). In the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, a sanctuary is not a fundamental necessity as every place is the same to ALLAH. A Muslim can bow down to ALLAH in all humility any where as the prayer is the expression of the submission of the created to the Creator.

In the Hadith (prophetic tradition) the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: "Wherever the hour of prayer overtakes thee, thou shalt perform the prayers and that is a Masjid"

Wa Alaikum Aasalam Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Barkatuhu , Dear Brother Our Prophet Rasulullah (P.B.U.H.) used to offer every Sunnat salat at home. But Farz , he was praying in the Mosque. So as for as we also must pray Farz salat in the Mosque only. While praying salat in the office you can make a group and offer Farz salat if you have couple of Muslim brothers. or else alone also you can pray But always try to make Farz salat in the Mosque or with group of brothers in the office. Wa Salam.

Assalamualaikum, of course your salat is valid as far as you do it properly with Wudu and the right number of raqaat etc...The difference is when you pray in the mosque we call it Salat Al Jamaa meaning praying with a group you got more hassanates. That's it.
