Superiority of taking many steps in order to reach the Masjid

350. Narrated Abu Musa (radhi Allaahu anhu):-

The Prophet (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said,

The people who get tremendous reward for As-Salat (the prayer) are those who are farthest away (from the mosque), and then those who are next farthest and so on. Similarly one who waits to offer Salat with the Imam has greater reward than one who offers Salat and goes to bed

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith No.623, Vol.1]
