What is the reference for this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“If people only knew what [reward] there was to call the Adhan and to [stand in] the first row [in congregational Salah], and could find no other way to get it than drawing lots for it, they would draw lots for it”



Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 615-2689 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 437)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
