Hadith on Jama’ah: Come to Isha and Fajr, even if crawling

Abu Darda reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Worship Allah as if you can see Him, for if you do not see Him, He surely sees you. Prepare yourself for death and beware of the supplication of the oppressed, for it will be answered. If one of you can attend the evening and dawn prayers, even if you must crawl, then do so.

عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ اعْبُدِ اللهَ كَأَنَّكَ تَرَاهُ فَإِنْ كُنْتَ لَا تَرَاهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَرَاكَ وَاعْدُدْ نَفْسَكَ فِي الْمَوْتَى وَإِيَّاكَ وَدَعْوَةَ الْمَظْلُومِ فَإِنَّهَا مُسْتَجَابَةٌ وَمَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يَشْهَدَ الصَّلَاتَيْنِ الْعِشَاءَ وَالصُّبْحَ وَلَوْ حَبْوًا فَلْيَفْعَلْ
