Salah

Objection by a brother regarding leaving Madinah for propagating Islam

Question

A brother in the Path of Allah (Tabligh), after the bayan, narrated the virtues that praying in Masjidul Ḥaram has 100,000 times rewards and praying in Masjidun Nabawi has 50,000 times rewards, but the Sahabah still left Arabia to spread the Din.

In response, a brother raised the following question:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) migrated to Madinah, and even after conquering Makkah, returned to Madinah again. He also spent the rest of his life mostly in Madinah. We have to follow the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), so what should we do?

Please give us a brief explanation in light of the abovementioned facts.

Proof for spacing the surahs in salah

Question

Is there any reference from the sunnah for the issue wherein the fuqaha say that it’s makrooh to leave 1 small surah in qisar mufassal during salah?

For example, if I recite surah lahab in the 1st rak’at, then in the second rak’at I cannot recite surah falaq because I will be leaving out 1 small surah in between.

I found the fatwa in shami but there is no mention of a Hadith.

So on what basis do we say it’s makrooh?
