Five daily salahs equal fifty in reward

Question

It is said that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) was told even though Allah reduced the number of Salahs from fifty (50) to five (5), the Ummah would get the reward of fifty. Please cite the Hadith that backs this up and if it is authentic?

 

Answer

This is mentioned in the famous Hadith of Mi’raj in Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 349, and is therefore authentic.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
