Riyad as-Saliheen 137

Ubayy bin Ka'b (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
There was a man, and I do not know of any other man whose house was farther than his from the mosque, and he never missed Salat (in congregation). It was said to him (or I said to him): "If you buy a donkey you could ride it in the dark nights and in the burning sand." He said: "I do not like my house to be by the side of the mosque, for I (eagerly) desire that my steps towards the mosque and back from it should be recorded when I return to my family." Upon this Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Allah has granted you all the rewards for you".


Another narration says: "You will get the reward for what you have anticipated".

الحادي والعشرون: عن أبي المنذر أبي بن كعب رضي الله عنه قال: كان رجل لا أعلم رجلاً أبعد من المسجد منه، وكان لا تخطئه صلاة فقيل له، أو فقلت له: لو اشتريت حماراً تركبه في الظلماء، وفي الرمضاء، فقال: ما يسرني أن منزلي إلى جنب المسجد، إني أريد أن يكتب لي ممشاي إلى المسجد، ورجوعي إذا رجعت إلى أهلي، فقال رسول الله ﷺ:
"قد جمع الله لك ذلك كله" ((رواه مسلم)).
