عن عبدالله ؛ قال : من سره أن يلقى الله غدا مسلما فليحافظ على هؤلاء الصلوات حيث ينادى بهن . فإن الله شرع لنبيكم صلى الله عليه وسلم سنن الهدى وإنهن من سنن الهدى . ولو أنكم صليتم في بيوتكم كما يصلي هذا المتخلف في بيته لتركتم سنة نبيكم . ولو تركتم سنة نبيكم لضللتم . وما من رجل يتطهر فيحسن الطهور ثم يعمد إلى مسجد من هذه المساجد إلا كتب الله له بكل خطوة يخطوها حسنة . ويرفعه بها درجة . ويحط عنه بها سيئة . ولقد رأيتنا وما يتخلف عنها إلا منافق ، معلوم النفاق . ولقد كان الرجل يؤتى به يهادى بين الرجلين حتى يقام في الصف

‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud رضي الله عنه said,

“Whoever aspires to meet Allah as a muslim, let him uphold the habit of attending prayers whenever the call to prayer is given. Allah has shown your Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم the way of guidance, and these prayers (in the mosques) are part of that way. If you pray in your homes like this man who stayed in his home, then you have abandoned the sunnah of your Prophet, and if you have abandoned the sunnah of your Prophet, then you have gone astray. There was a time when the only type of person who would stay at home at the time of prayer was the one who was known to be a hypocrite. At that time, a man would be brought supported by two others, until he stood in the rows of worshipper.”

[Sahih Muslim]
