The Hadith (Inspired Sayings) of Mohammed

Zeal and Attention to Religion

Mohammed having some trouble getting up zeal for Mosque attendance -- Sahih Buhari-- Volume 3, Book 48, Number 854:

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "If the people knew what is the reward of making the call (for the prayer) and (of being in) the first row (in the prayer), and if they found no other way to get this privilege except by casting lots, they would certainly cast lots for it. If they knew the reward of the noon prayer, they would race for it, and if they knew the reward of the morning (i.e. Fajr) and Isha prayers, they would present themselves for the prayer even if they had to crawl to reach there.

Hadith of Mohammed Ayesha reports, (Al-Bukhari, 1:44), "The Prophet used to rest in my bosom during my menstruation period and recite the Koran..."
