Pol Lt Somboon Sakhon, a duty officer at Ra-ngae police station, said the M-79 grenades exploded and caused large holes on the roof and the ceiling.
The windshield of a car parked nearby was damaged by debris.
Mr Najmuddin, one of the nine members of the Wadah group, told police that loud explosions at the front of the house woke him from his sleep.
Investigators said it appeared two men on a motorcycle fired the two M-79 grenades at Mr Najmuddin's house and then fled.
It is the second attack on Mr Najmuddin's house in just over a year.
Police blamed separatist insurgents opposed to peace talks between the National Security Council-led delegation and the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) insurgency movement.
