عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ رَكْعَتَا الْفَجْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا فِيهَا ” .(مسلم)
Aaisha RA said that Prophet SAW said, “Two units of Fajar are better than this world and everything in it.” (Muslim)
- This hadith is referring to two units before the obligatory prayer. How great is the reward of the actual prayer! And how much greater is the reward in congregation!
- Prophet SAW did not say that the reward is better than this world. Rather this world and all that it contains.
- Imagine, if I told you to come to Fajar in congregation and you will receive a million dollars. We will make every single effort to make sure we attend and not a single person will miss it. Why do we miss it when the reward far exceeds that?
- Sheikh Saeed Kamli said that this shows you that the infinitesimal of the next world is far greater than the infinite of this world.
