Answer

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) prohibited a Muslim from reserving a certain spot in the mosque for performing prayers. It is the religious duty of other Muslims to tell this person that whoever takes a spot first is the one most deserving of it.
And God the Almighty knows best.
