O Banu Salamah! Stay in your houses, because your footprints (when you come to the mosque) will be recorded
He said this twice. They said: "We would not have liked it, had we moved near the mosque.''
This Hadith mentions the merit of living at a distance from mosque. It is better that such people who
lack the passion for worship and are not punctual in Salat should live near mosque so that they do not neglect the
obligatory prayers.

Abu Musa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
The person who
will receive the highest reward for Salat (prayer) is the one who comes to perform it in the mosque from the farthest
distance. And he who waits for Salat to perform it with the Imam (in congregation) will have a greater reward than
the one who observes it alone and then goes to sleep
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith tells us that a person who comes to the mosque for Salat from a longer distance earns a
greater reward than the others who live near the mosque. It also mentions the merit of performing Salat in
congregation and waiting for it till one performs it behind the Imam.

Buraidah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Convey glad
tidings to those who walk to the mosque in the darkness. For they will be given full light on the Day of
[At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud].
In the darkness
'' here indicates the Fajr and `Isha' prayers which are performed when it is dark.
Because of the street lighting nowadays we do not feel darkness in these hours in towns and cities but even then
these lights do not overcome the darkness completely. Thus in spite of the lights, Fajr and `Isha' prayers are the
prayers of the dark. Their merit mentioned in this Hadith is that those Muslims who go to the mosque for these
prayers will be endowed with perfect light on the Day of Requital by means of which they will easily cross As-Sirat,
while those who will be deprived of this light will be facing great trouble in crossing it.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Shall I not
tell you something by which Allah effaces the sins and elevates the ranks (in Jannah).
'' The Companions said: "Yes
(please tell us), O Messenger of Allah.'' He said, "
Performing the Wudu' properly in spite of difficult circumstances,
walking with more paces to the mosque, and waiting for the next Salat (prayer) after a observing Salat; and that is
Ar-Ribat, and that is Ar-Ribat
This Hadith has already been mentioned. It has been repeated here to show that meticulous care in
respect of purification, Salat and worship is akin to Jihad for the sake of Allah, and fight against the enemy in the
battlefield. See the commentary on Hadith No.1030.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
