The excellence of proceeding towards the masjid walking

Hadith: Arabic Text followed by English Translation. 

عن أبي بن كعب رضي الله عنه قال‏

كان رجل من الأنصار لا أعلم أحدًا أبعد من المسجد منه، وكانت لا تخطئه صلاة‏!‏ فقيل له‏:‏ لو اشتريت حمارًا تركبه في الظلماء وفي الرمضاء قال‏:‏ ما يسرني أن منزلي إلى جنب المسجد إني أريد أن يكتب لي ممشاي إلى المسجد، ورجوعي إذا رجعت إلى أهلي، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏قد جمع الله لك ذلك كله‏”

رواه مسلم ٦٦٣

Ubayy bin Ka’b (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

There was a man of the Ansar whose house was the farthest from the mosque. As far as I know, he never missed Salat (in congregation). It was said to him: “If you buy a donkey, you may ride upon it in the dark nights and in the hot days.” He said: “I do not like that my house should be situated close to the mosque. I desire that my walking towards the mosque and returning home be recorded to my credit.” Upon this the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah has gathered all (rewards) for you.”
