Nabi (saw) bersabda,
The Importance of Praying in Congregation
The Prophet (s) said:
صلاة الجماعة أفضل من صلاة الفذ بسبع وعشرين درجة
Prayer in congregation is twenty-seven times the value of prayer by oneself. (Bukhari, Muslim)
Why is it twenty-seven times? What importance happens in a month on the 27th day? Israa’ wa ‘l-Mi`raaj and Laylat al-Qadr! Allah (swt) sent the Holy Qur’an to His Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), on Laylat al-Qadr, the 27th night of Ramadan! So whenever anyone prays Salaat al-Jama`ah he will get the blessings as if he read the whole Holy Qur’an, because every salaat you pray in jama`ah you are not praying in this room, but this room will disappear and you will pray it bayna yaday ar-Rahman, between the Hands of Allah in the Divine Presence.
For every prayer prayed in jama`ah you will receive the complete blessings of the Holy Qur’an which Allah granted His Prophet (s)! From that secret Awliyaullah like to pray Salaat-al-Jama`ah and now we ask Allah (swt) to give us that power to pray Salaat al-Jama`ah.
