Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, Book II, Chapter CLXXII, P.235

(857) Anas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, one day led us in the prayer, and when he completed the prayer he turned his face towards us and said: O people, I am your Imam, so do not precede me in bowing and prostration and in standing and turning (faces, i.e. in pronouncing salutation), for I see you in front of me and behind me, and then said: By him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, if you could see what I see, you would have laughed little and wept much more. They said: What did you see, Messenger of Allah? He replied: (I saw) Paradise and Hell.
