Praying in the two sacred mosques, more rewarding
We have been told that each namaz that we offer in the K'abah will give us the reward of a 100,000 prayers; similarly, that for each namaz we offer in the Masjid-e-Nabvi, we will be blessed with the reward of 50,000 prayers. Kindly guide us as to how far this understanding is correct and whether this is substantiated by the Qur'an and Hadith.
It's an understanding that is based on information contained in an authentic hadith. We know that praying at a particular night (lailatul qadr) brings us reward equivalent to 1000 months of practice compared to the normal rule. Likewise, it seems that praying in these two sacred mosques has been declared to be more rewarding compared to praying in other mosques. Like in the material world, if you sow a seed at the right time in the right soil, your returns will be more; similar is the case with the spiritual world. Such
incentives, if communicated through authentic sources, do tend to bring in more effrot and sincerety for the believers, provided they take it in the right spirit.
