Hadith on Siyam: The Prophet hastens to break his fast

Abu ‘Atiyyah reported: Masruq and I visited Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, and he said, “O mother of the believers, there are two companions of Muhammad and neither of them hold back from doing good. One of them hastens to break his fast and to perform the evening prayer, while the other delays breaking his fast and performing the prayer.” Aisha asked, “Who is the one who breaks his fast and performs prayer?” He said, “It is Abdullah ibn Mas’ud.” Aisha said, “The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, used to do so.”

عَنْ أَبِي عَطِيَّةَ قَالَ دَخَلْتُ أَنَا وَمَسْرُوقٌ عَلَى عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا فَقَالَ لَهَا مَسْرُوقٌ رَجُلَانِ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كِلَاهُمَا لَا يَأْلُو عَنْ الْخَيْرِ أَحَدُهُمَا يُعَجِّلُ الْمَغْرِبَ وَالْإِفْطَارَ وَالْآخَرُ يُؤَخِّرُ الْمَغْرِبَ وَالْإِفْطَارَ فَقَالَتْ مَنْ يُعَجِّلُ الْمَغْرِبَ وَالْإِفْطَارَ قَالَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ فَقَالَتْ هَكَذَا كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَصْنَعُ
