Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would hasten when approaching Madinah

Question

Could you reference the narration?

“Whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) returned from a journey and saw the walls/high parts of Madinah he would spur on his camel and if he was on an animal [a horse/donkey] he would make it gallop out of his love for Madinah”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1802 and 1886)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
