Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
He who
goes to the mosque in the morning or in the evening, Allah prepares for him a place in Jannah whenever he goes to
the mosque in the morning and returns from it in the evening
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith points out the merit of going on foot to the mosque for Salat, no matter whether one
goes in the morning or the evening. In fact, the heart of a Muslim should be attached to mosques and on account of
this, he goes there at all the prescribed hours of Salat to perform his Salat in congregation.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
He who purifies
(performs Wudu') himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an
obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah)
This Hadith has an inducement for offering Salat in the mosque and brings into eminence the merit
of doing so. The merit lies in the fact that one minor sin is pardoned at every step that is taken towards the mosque
and one's status (i
n Jannah
) is enhanced by one stage. This Hadith also mentions the vastness of the Mercy and
Blessing of Allah.

Ubayy bin Ka`b (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: There was a man of the Ansar whose house was
the farthest from the mosque. As far as I know, he never missed Salat (in congregation). It was said to him: "If you
buy a donkey, you may ride upon it in the dark nights and in the hot days.'' He said: "I do not like that my house
should be situated close to the mosque. I desire that my walking towards the mosque and returning home be
recorded to my credit.'' Upon this the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Allah has gathered all (rewards) for you
We learn from this Hadith that the location of the mosque at a long distance from one's house is
advantageous in the sense that one gains merits at every step when he goes to the mosque and returns from it. Not
only that, a minor sin of him is also pardoned at every step. This Hadith also highlights the merit of good intention.
One can attain many heights by dint of one's good intentions.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: There were some plots of land lying vacant around the
mosque. The people of Banu Salamah decided to move to this land and come nearer to the mosque. The Messenger
of Allah (PBUH) heard about it and said to them, "
I have heard that you intend to move near the mosque
.'' They
said: "Yes, O Messenger of Allah! We have decided to do that.'' Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
