Assalamu Alaykum :)

Today's quiz is about prayers.

One of these Prophets advised Prophet Mohammed Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, to ask Allah to reduce the number of prayers, because we would not bear it. If it wasn't for this Prophet, Muslims would be praying 50 times a day instead of 5 prayers.

Who's this Prophet?

A) Prophet Musa (Moses)

B) Prophet Isa (Jesus)

C) Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham)

It was prophet Mosa peace be upon him
The hadith regarding the Prophet’s Night Journey and Ascension is narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim, so it is in the highest degree of authenticity. The hadith states that when Almighty Allah initially prescribed fifty daily prayers on the Muslim nation, Prophet Moses advised Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to return to Allah and ask Him to make them less than fifty. Then Allah granted the Prophet’s wish and made them only five daily prayers that are equal to fifty prayers in reward.

It was Musa (RA)!
Part of the hadith is as follows:
Narrated Malik bin Sasaa: .."Then we ascended to the 6th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Moses who said, 'You are welcomed O brother and. a Prophet.' When I proceeded on, he started weeping and on being asked why he was weeping, he said, 'O Lord! Followers of this youth who was sent after me will enter Paradise in greater number than my followers.' Then we ascended to the seventh heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Abraham who said, 'You are welcomed o son and a Prophet.' Then I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma'mur (i.e. Allah's House). I asked Gabriel about it and he said, This is Al Bait-ul-Ma'mur where 70,000 angels perform prayers daily and when they leave they never return to it (but always a fresh batch comes into it daily).' Then I was shown Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. a tree in the seventh heaven) and I saw its Nabk fruits which resembled the clay jugs of Hajr (i.e. a town in Arabia), and its leaves were like the ears of elephants, and four rivers originated at its root, two of them were apparent and two were hidden. I asked Gabriel about those rivers and he said, 'The two hidden rivers are in Paradise, and the apparent ones are the Nile and the Euphrates.' Then fifty prayers were enjoined on me. I descended till I met Moses who asked me, 'What have you done?' I said, 'Fifty prayers have been enjoined on me.' He said, 'I know the people better than you, because I had the hardest experience to bring Bani Israel to obedience. Your followers cannot put up with such obligation. So, return to your Lord and request Him (to reduce the number of prayers.' I returned and requested Allah (for reduction) and He made it forty. I returned and (met Moses) and had a similar discussion, and then returned again to Allah for reduction and He made it thirty, then twenty, then ten, and then I came to Moses who repeated the same advice. Ultimately Allah reduced it to five. When I came to Moses again, he said, 'What have you done?' I said, 'Allah has made it five only.' He repeated the same advice but I said that I surrendered (to Allah's Final Order)'" Allah's Apostle was addressed by Allah, "I have decreed My Obligation and have reduced the burden on My slaves, and I shall reward a single good deed as if it were ten good deeds."

Some scholars say that Musa continued to encourage the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to ask for a decrease because he knew how challenging it would be for the ummah, and he also wanted to continue meeting Rasullullah. Allah knows best.
