Hadith Explanation

They would Draw Lots for It

“Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) used to invoke the mercy of Allah three times upon those who formed the first line, and only once upon those who were in the second line.” [Nasai]

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) said: “People do not know the high degree of reward and blessings reserved for the people who form the first line of prayer. If they knew it, they would start drawing lots for the privilege of joining the first line.” [Bukhari]

People sit all night outside the embassies of countries they want to immigrate to, so that they can be first in line for the visa when the embassy opens in the morning. Isn’t Jannah the land every Muslim should want to migrate to? Why don’t we have the same concern to join the first line of prayer for it?
