Three masjids for which it is prescribed to travel for the purpose of worship

by Allama Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer

There are three masjids for which it is prescribed to travel for the purpose of worship.

1 Masjid UL Haram.
2 Masjid UN Nabvi.
3 Masjid UL Aqsa( Baitul muqaddas).


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not travel (specifically) to any mosque except three: al-Masjid al-Haraam, Masjid al-Aqsa, and this mosque of mine.” (Sahih Al-Bukhaari, 1996).

Reward of offering one salah in

1 Masjid il Haram is equal to 100000 salah
2 Masjid in Nabvi is equal to 1000 salah
3 Masjid il Aqsa is equal to 250 salah

This reward is multiplied by 27 times if salah is offered in congregation

So every Muslim can go any where to seek knowledge ,information or for worldly benefit but no Muslim should go to any place to get additional reward except above mentioned places
