Salam,

Then why did the Prophet of Allah s.a.w.a.s. stayed in Madinah after Hijra and even after al-Fath Makkah and performed most of his prayers in Masjid An-Nabawi?

Do you have the Arabic? I have never heard of a hadith that says that.

Yes, prayer in Mecca rewards more than prayer in Medina. However, after the conquest of Mecca, the Prophet (s) and Imam `Ali (as) preferred not to stay in Mecca for more than a day at a time, in respect of its holiness. In general, it's not recommended in our fiqh to live in a sanctuary city. Our nafs can't handle being in a sanctified place for too long - we end up becoming desensitized to its holiness and start sinning or disrespecting it. The ma`sumeen don't sin, but they were probably showing us how to respect the sanctuary, and wanted to avoid the makrooh there as well.

Salamun alaikum,

Indeed, there is great reward in the prayer performed in the Masjidul Haram. In Islam, great emphasis is laid on performing prayers in a mosque. Masjidul Haram is superior to all the mosques, and after it, the order of priority is as follows:

  • Masjidun Nabi (in Madina)
  • Masjid Kufa (in Kufa)
  • Masjid Baytul Maqdas (in the occupied Palestine)

Then comes the number of Jami' Masjid (central mosque) of every city, followed by the mosques situated in one's locality, and then that of the bazaar.

 For women, it is better to pray at such places where they are best protected from Na Mahram (unrelated men), regardless of whether that place is her home, a mosque or anywhere else.
