Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“One who leaves home in the state of wudu to proceed to the Masjid for fard salah secures the reward of a Haji in the state of ihram.” (Sunan Abi Dawud)
Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 559)
This narration will be classified as sound (hasan) by Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) according to his principle in his book; Hidayatur Ruwat.
(Refer: Hidayatur Ruwat, Hadith: 695. Also see: Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 213/214)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
