Does it appear in the Hadith that performing Salah in Masjidun Nabawi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is rewarded 50,000 times?



Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘…and Salah in my Masjid is fifty thousand times better than in other Masjids…’

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1413 with a weak chain. Also see: Misbahuz Zujajah, Hadith: 504 and Targhib, vol.2 pg.215)


Note: Other authentic versions state the reward in Masjid Nabawi to be a thousand times better.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith:1190)

This will not be considered as a contradiction,

ولا مفهوم للعدد٫ فلذا لا يعتبر مخالفا



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
