It is reported that there are 3 special masjids that we can earn big rewards from. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) told us about that in the following hadith:

  1. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: ”The prayer in my masjid (Masjid An-Nabawi) is better than one thousand (1000) prayers in any other masjid with the exception of Masjid Al-Haraam, and a prayer in Masjid Al-Haraam is better than one hundred thousand (100,000) prayers.” 
  2. Abu Ad-Dardaa’  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him reported on the authority of the Prophet , that the reward for praying at the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah) is equal to the reward for one hundred thousand regular prayers; the reward for praying at the Prophet’s Mosque (in Madeenah) is equal to the reward for one thousand regular prayers; and the reward for praying at the Al-’Aqsa Mosque (in Jerusalem) is equal to the reward for five hundred regular prayers. [Al-Bazzaar] This is an authentic narration.

From the hadith we learned that praying in:

  1. Masjidil Haram (Makkah) =  100,000 prayers
  2. Masjid An-Nabawi (Madinah) = 1000 prayers
  3. Masjidil Aqsa (Palestine) = 500 prayers

One thought on “The rewards of praying at the 3 Sacred Mosque

  1. Reblogged this on abdullatef@attamimi and commented:

    Recently, I had a chat with a syaikh about “Shopping During Hajj Trip”. He said that normally, he will advice that at Makkah or Madinah, try the best to concentrate on Ibaadah. He suggested that Hujjaj or those who go for umrah should spend their time about two days in Jeddah for shopping. The goods at Jeddah is cheaper because there is a port at Jeddah.

    Went I re-read this post, I understand why he advice us to concentrate on Ibaadah when we go to Makkah and Madinah.
