Ahadith on the Virtues and Importance of Jama’at


Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 2-Salat and its virtues

1. Ibn Umar radiallahu anhu narrates from Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the virtue of offering salaat with jama’at as
being 27 times more rewarding than offering it alone.

2. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: “It is better to offer salaat
with another person than to offer it alone. And it is even better to offer it
with two people. And the bigger the jama’at, the more beloved it is in the sight
of Allah.”
