Performing Salaah in multi faith prayer rooms

Q: Is it permissable to pray in multi faith prayer rooms, such as the ones they usually have at airports? These rooms are mostly used by Muslims but also some non-Muslims use them for praying and apart from Islamic material they also contain bibles and books of other religions. The question came to my mind since, if I remember it correctly, we are not allowed to enter into buildings of worship of other religions?



: Do not perform Salaah in that room, instead perform Salaah in one corner of the airport in a place where you will not inconvenience anybody. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

باب الصلاة في البيعة وقال عمر رضي الله عنه إنا لا ندخل كنائسكم من أجل التماثيل التي فيها الصور وكان ابن عباس يصلي في البيعة إلا بيعة فيها تماثيل

عن عائشة أن أم سلمة ذكرت لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كنيسة رأتها بأرض الحبشة يقال لها مارية فذكرت له ما رأت فيها من الصور فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أولئك قوم إذا مات فيهم العبد الصالح أو الرجل الصالح بنوا على قبره مسجدا وصوروا فيه تلك الصور أولئك شرار الخلق عند الله (صحيح البخاري # 434)
