This will always apply.” (Muslim)

• Abu Hurayrah radhiyallahu anhu reported that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “There are angels who take turns in being with you in the night and other angels in the day and they meet together at the prayers of Fajr and ‘Asr.

• Ubayy ibn Ka‘b radhiyallahu anhu said, “There was a man of the Ansar and I do not know of any man who lived further from the Masjid than him. He never missed a prayer. It was said to him, “You should buy a donkey which you could ride in the dark and when it is very hot.” He said, “It would not make me happier if my house were right next to the Masjid. I want my steps to the Masjid to be written down for me and also my return when I return to my family. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “Allah will combine all that for you.” (Muslim)
• Jabir radhiyallahu anhu said, “The area around the Masjid was empty and the Banu Salama wanted to move near to the Masjid and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam heard about it. He said to them, “It has reached me that you want to move near to the Masjid?” They said, “Yes, Messenger of Allah, we do want that.” He said, “Banu Salama, keep the houses you have. Your footprints are written down. Keep the houses you have! Your footprints are written down.” (Muslim)

• Abu Musa radhiyallahu anhu reported that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “The people who get the greatest reward for the prayer are those who live furthest away and then the next furthest.

That is what you should hold on to. That is what you should hold on to.” (Muslim)
