Local masjid more rewarding or further masjid?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question: Do you get more reward going to your local mosque or do you get more reward going to a mosque which is more further?

—————— —————- —————————

Answer:

It is more virtuous that a person performs Salah in his local Masjid, rather then a Masjid further away, even though the congregation may be larger there. This is because his local Masjid has a right over him. If he goes to the other masjid, this will constitute to abandoning his local masjid.

وَمَسْجِدُ حَيِّهِ وَإِنْ قَلَّ جَمْعُهُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ الْجَامِعِ وَإِنْ كَثُرَ جَمْعُهُ….بَلْ فِي الْخَانِيَّةِ: لَوْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لِمَسْجِدِ مَنْزِلِهِ مُؤَذِّنٌ فَإِنَّهُ يَذْهَبُ إلَيْه وَيُؤَذِّنُ فِيهِ وَيُصَلِّي وَلَوْ كَانَ وَحْدَهُ لِأَنَّ لَهُ حَقًّا عَلَيْهِ فَيُؤَدِّيه. (البحر الرائق 1/659)
