Abu Umaamah (radiya Allaahu ‘anh) related that the Prophet (sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said :
“Each of [the following] three has a guarantee with Allâh – that if he lives, he is taken care of , and if he dies, he will enter Paradise: One who enters his house with ‘Salaam’ has a guarantee with Allâh ‘Azza Wa-Jall (The Most Mighty and Exalted); One who goes out to the Masjid has a guarantee with Allâh; and One who geos out in the way of Allâh has a guarantee with Allâh.” 
 Al-Adab Al-Mufrad (1094). Al-Albaanee said, “Saheeh.”
Narrated ‘abdu ALlaah ibn ‘Umar (رَضِيَ الله عَنْهُمَا) that the messenger of Allaah (صَلَّى للَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said:
“He who prays ad-Doha, fasts three days every month and does not abandon Witr neither travelling nor at residence, will have the reward of a martyr written for him”
[atTabarani in Muyamma’ azZawa’ed (241/2), declared saheeh by sheikh al-Albani (rahimahu Allaah) in sahih at-Targhib wa Taarhib, no. 595]
Note: ad-Doha starts when the sun raises the length of a spear (approximately 10 to 20 minutes after sunrise) and ends about 15 to 30 minutes before the adhan for duhr, it is prayed in pairs of rakats and can consist of at least two, to as many rakat as you would like beyond that.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
My friend (the Messenger of Allah) (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) directed me to observe fast for three days in every month, to perform two Rak`ah (optional) Duha prayer at forenoon and to perform the Witr prayer before going to bed.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
CHAPTER 21. The superiority of one who prepares a Ghazi (i.e. warrior of Jihad) or looks after his dependents in his absence.
1230. Narrated Zaid bin Khalid رضي الله عنه : Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said,
“He who prepares a Ghazi going in Allah’s Cause is (given a reward equal to that of) a Ghazi; and he who looks after properly the dependents of a Ghazi going in Allah’s Cause is (given a reward equal to that of) a Ghazi.”

Imaam Aboo Ya`laa -rahimahullaah- reported in his ‘Musnad’ (11/238-239/6357):
“Ibraaheem ibn Ziyaad Sabalaan narrated to us: Aboo Mu`aawiyah narrated to us: Muhammad ibn Ishaaq narrated to us: from Jameel ibn Abee Maymoonah: from `Ataa· ibn Yazeed al- Laythee: from Aboo Hurairah, who said: Allaah’s Messenger Peace be upon him) said:
<<Whoever goes out to perform Hajj, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of a person who performs Hajj until the Day of Resurrection; and whoever goes out to perform `Umrah, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of one who performs `Umrah until the Day of Resurrection; and whoever goes out as a fighter in Allaah’s cause, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of one who fights in Allaah’s cause until the Day of Resurrection>>.”
Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in Saheehut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (no.1114): “Saheeh ligharihi”

“Whoever asks Allah sincerely for martyrdom [Allahumma inni as’aluk ash-shahadah], Allah will cause him to reach the status of the martyrs even if he dies in his bed.” [‘Sahih al-Bukhari’; # 1909]‘
[Al-`Adawee said it was sound, and that it was reported by by Muslim, page 55 of volume 13; Abu Dãwood, page 179 of volume 2; and Ibn Mãjah, #2797.]
‘And whosoever obeys Allaah and the Messenger then they will be in the company of those that Allaah has favoured: of the Prophets, the Truthful Ones (Siddeeq), the Martyrs and the Righteous – what an excellent company!’ (4:69).
