Sunan Abi Dawood 1479
Narrated An-Nu'man ibn Bashir:

The Prophet ﷺ said: Supplication (du'a') is itself the worship.

(He then recited:) "And your Lord said: Call on Me, I will answer you" (xI.60).
حَدَّثَنَا حَفْصُ بْنُ عُمَرَ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ مَنْصُورٍ، عَنْ ذَرٍّ، عَنْ يُسَيْعٍ الْحَضْرَمِيِّ، عَنِ النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ الدُّعَاءُ هُوَ الْعِبَادَةُ ‏{‏ قَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ‏}‏ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
