Important Explanation About Isha Prayer and Subuh Prayer in Mosque ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain an important explanation about Isha and Subuh prayers which is unknown to many people. As we know, the two prayers are prayers performed by someone in a state of exhaustion due to activities from morning to evening, and in the condition of someone just waking up. In general, someone will feel heavy doing the two prayers. But there is a huge privilege that someone will get if he wants to do both with other people in the mosque.
As always, before I explain Isha prayer and Subuh prayer in mosque further, I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to our discussion.
Hadith About Isha Prayer and Subuh Prayer in Mosque
The hadith that I mean is as follows;
عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ ؛ قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ؛ أَثْقَلُ الصَّلَاةِ عَلَى الْمُنَافِقِيْنَ صَلَاةُ الْعِشَاءَ وَصَلَاةُ الْفَجْرِ ، وَلَوْ يَعْلَمُوْنَ مَا فِيْهِمَا لَأَتَوْهُمَا وَلَوْ حَبْواً . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ
From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, he said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “The most difficult prayers performed by hypocrites are Isha prayer and Subuh prayer. If they know the rewards that are in the two prayers, then they will do both though by crawling.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
There are some important things related to the hadith above that we need to know;
One; The hadith explains about the recommendation to do the Isha prayer and the Prayer prayer with the people in the mosque. The sentence that shows it is the saying of the Prophet Muhammad, “If they know the rewards that are in the two prayers, then they will do both though by crawling.”
Two; The hadith explains, that we may take many obstacles to get reward.
Three; It is true, the hadith above does not specifically explain how much merit will be obtained by someone who performs Isha prayer and Shubuh prayer with others in the mosque. But if we reflect on the words of the Prophet Muhammad, “If they knew the reward that are in the two prayers,” then we can make sure the reward is very large.
Four; The hadith explains, that we must not imitate hypocrites.
That is a brief explanation of the theme of this article. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
