Could you reference this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Allah does not grant a slave to engage in anything more rewarding for him than two rak’ahs of Salah which he offers and certainly righteousness is spread over his head so long as he is engaged in Salah. Man does not come nearer to Allah with anything better than that which came forth from Allah Ta’ala meaning thereby the Qur’an.”



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2911)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
