Great Rewards · Salah (Prayer)

No Salaat (prayer) is more heavy (harder) for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the ‘Ishaa prayers

Bismillaah, wal-hamdulilaah, was-salaatu was-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah,
as Salaamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh

383. Narrated Aboo Huraira (radhi Allaahu anhu) :- The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

“No Salaat (prayer) is more heavy (harder) for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the ‘Ishaa prayers, and if they knew the reward for these Salaat (prayers) at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl.” The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) added, “Certainly, I intended or planned or decided to order the Mu’adhdhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqaama and then take a fire flame to burn all those (men along with their houses who had not left their houses) so far for As-Salaat (the prayer) (in the mosque).”

Daily-Hadith · Salah (Prayer)

Salat in congregation is twenty-five times more rewarding

1065. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,

A man’s Salat in congregation is twenty-five times more rewarding than his Salat at home or in his shop, and that is because when he performs his Wudu’ properly and proceeds towards the mosque with the purpose of performing Salat in congregation, he does not take a step without being raised a degree (in rank) for it and having a sin remitted for it, till he enters the mosque. When he is performing Salat, the angels continue to invoke Blessings of Allah on him as long as he is in his place of worship in a state of Wudu’. They say: `O Allah! Have mercy on him! O Allah! Forgive him.’ He is deemed to be engaged in Salat as long as he waits for it
