Performing Salaah Outside The Masjid Boundary Due To Renovation


A Masjid is currently being renovated. The area of the Masjid boundary is due for renovation next. 

Can the entire boundary area of the Masjid be closed off and Salaat read in the Sahn (courtyard), which is not included in the boundary? Or does some portion of the actual Masjid have to be left accessible so that Salaat can be performed in the actual Masjid? 


The entire Masjid boundary may be sealed and Salaah may be performed in the courtyard (Sahn) due to a necessity, which in this case is renovating the Masjid.
