Sahih Muslim Book 4, Hadith Number 1472.

Chapter : Compensation of the missed prayer and excellence of observing it promptly.

Jubair b. Nufair reported: I went along with Shurahbil b. al-Simt to a village which was situated at a distance of seventeen or eighteen miles, and he said only two rak’ahs of prayer. I said to him (about it) and he said: I saw ‘Umar observing two rak’ahs at Dhu’l-Hulaifa and I (too) said to him (about it) and he said: I am doing the same as I saw the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) doing. (This Hadith has been transmitted by Shu’ba with the same chain of narrators and it is narrated from Simt, and the name of Shurahbil has not been mentioned, and he said that he had gone to a place called Dumin, situated at a distance of eighteen miles from him.)
