Salaah in al-Musjid an-Nabawi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Question:
 

Is the virtue of performing forty Salaah in al-Masjidun Nabawi in Madinah Munawwarah for the one who prays the forty Fardh Salaah consecutively or intermittently?

Answer:
 

The virtue is for the one who performs forty Salaah consecutively (without missing a Salaah in-between) in the Musjid of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as mentioned in the Hadith.

من صلى في مسجدي أربعين صلاة، لا يفوته صلاة، كتبت له براءة من النار، ونجاة من العذاب، وبرئ من النفاق

Whoever prays forty Salaah in my Musjid (al-Musjidun Nabawi), without missing any will be absolved from the fire of hell and its punishment and will also be absolved from hypocrisy.

(Musnad Ahmed, Hadith #: 12583, Narrated by Anas bin Malik)
