Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhiallaho anho):
 Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The reward of  the prayer offered by a person in congregation is twenty five times greater than that of the prayer offered in one’s house or in the market (alone). And this is because if he performs ablution and does 
it perfectly and then proceeds to the mosque with the sole intention 
of praying, then for every step he takes towards the mosque, he is 
upgraded one degree in reward and his one sin is taken off (crossed 
out) from his accounts (of deeds). When he offers his prayer, the 
angels keep on asking Allah’s blessings and Allah’s forgiveness for 
him as long as he is (staying) at his Musalla. They say, ‘O Allah! 
Bestow Your blessings upon him, be Merciful and kind to him.’
And one  is regarded in prayer as long as one is waiting for the prayer.”

 Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol.1 : No. 620
