Hadith Explanation

A Thousand Hindrances

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If people became aware of the rewards and blessings of offering prayers in Jamaat, they would hasten to join the Jamaat for prayer despite a thousand hindrances. The first row of a Jamaat for prayer is like the row of angels. It is better for two men to offer prayers together than separately. The larger the congregation the dearer it is to Allah.” [Abu Dawud]

What is there on earth for which you are willing to work through a thousand hindrances? Is there anything worth it?

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) tells us that the benefit a man will obtain by offering prayer in Jamaat is worth having to work through a thousand hindrances to get to.

For men, the best place to perform their prayer is the Masjid. If the Masjid is too far away, make a Jamaat of Muslims wherever you are. But do your best to avoid praying all by yourself.
