Sahih Bukhari | Volume 1 | Hadith Number 541
Narrated by 'Aisha
Allah's Apostle once delayed the 'Isha prayer and that was during the days when Islam still had not spread. The Prophet did not come out till 'Umar informed him that the women and children had slept. Then he came out and said to the people of the mosque: "None amongst the dwellers of the earth has been waiting for it ('Isha prayer) except you."
