Riyad as-Saliheen 1068

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "By Him in Whose Hand my life is, I sometimes thought of giving orders for firewood to be collected, then for proclaiming the Adhan for Salat. Then I would appoint an Imam to lead Salat, and then go to the houses of those who do not come to perform Salat in congregation, and set fire to their houses on them."

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله ﷺ قال: "والذي نفسي بيده، لقد هممت أن آمر بحطب فيحتطب، ثم آمر بالصلاة فيؤذن لها، ثم آمر رجلا فيؤم الناس، ثم أخالف إلى رجال فأحرق عليهم بيوتهم" ((متفق عليه))
