Q: Some masaajid have a two-storey building. Is the reward for praying in the first row of the second floor equal to that of praying in the first row of the first floor?
A: No. The first row in the upper level will only commence after the bottom level is full. Hence, the first row in the upper level will be like the saff after the last saff of the bottom floor.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
