I would like to know the reference for the following Hadith:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was never more regular and particular in offering any optional Salah than the two rak’ah Sunnah of the Fajr prayer



Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahullah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).
