Virtues of salah in congregation

Question

I hear people saying

1. Salah in congregation in the Masjid earns  25-27  times more reward,

2. There is a narration in ibn Majah saying it’s 500 times.

Which, one is more authentic?

 

Answer

The first one is authentic, and is recorded in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
