The Prophet of All°h (blessings of All°h be

upon him and his family) said: :( )
“Jibr°˜il came to me after Æal°t al-Zuhr accompanied
by 70,000 Angels and said (to me), ‘O’ Mu¶ammad! !"#$% & '( )*+, - !./ 01 % 234 5.6 7% 8 9)6: ;< =4

The Prophet replied, ‘What are these two gifts?’

and the Earth were to be changed into ink and all the
trees were to be changed into pens and all of the Jinn
and Mankind along with the Angels were to try to record the reward (for one Rak`at) they would not be able to
record it. O’ Mu¶ammad! The Takb¢r that the believers perform with the Im°m (of the Æal°t) is better than 60,000 Øajj
and `Umrah and better than the world and all that is contained within it 70,000 times over. The one Rak`at that the
believers pray with the Im°m is better than 100,000 din°r of charity given to the poor people. The Sajdah that the
believers perform with the Im°m in Jam°`at is better than freeing 1,000 slaves.’” (Mustadrak al-Wasa˜’il, Volume 1, Page 487)

Ponder upon this point: If you were to pray just one 2 Rak`at Æal°t in Jam°`at with 10 people just ONE TIME, this would
be equivalent to performing the Æal°t of 23½ years (17 Rak`at per day x 365 days in one year x 23½ years = 145,600)!!
