“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, enjoined fifty prayers upon my Ummah, and I came back with that until I passed by Musa, peace be upon him, who said: ‘What has your Lord enjoined upon your Ummah?’ I said: ‘He has enjoined fifty prayers on them.’ Musa said to me: ‘Go back to your Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, for your Ummah will not be able to do that.’ So I went back to my Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, and He reduced a portion of it. Then I came back to Musa and told him, and he said: ‘Go back to you Lord, for your Ummah will not be able to do that.’ So I went back to my Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, and He said: ‘They are five (prayers) but they are fifty (in reward), and the Word that comes from Me cannot be changed.’ [1] I came back to Musa and he said: ‘Go back to your Lord.’ I said: ‘I feel too shy before my Lord, the Mighty and Sublime.'” [1]See Surah Qaf 50:29.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: When one of you recites “By the fig and the olive” (Surah 95) and comes to its end “Is not Allah the best judge?” (verse 8), he should say: “Certainly, and I am one of those who testify to that.” When one recites “I swear by the Day of Resurrection” (Surah 75) and comes to “Is not that one able to raise the dead to life? (verse 40), he should say: “Certainly.” And when one recites “By those that are sent” (Surah 77), and comes to “Then in what message after that will they believe? ” (Surah 50), he should say: “We believe in Allah.”
