Hadith on Sujud: Prostrate more to be with the Prophet in Paradise

Rabi’ah ibn Ka’b reported: I spent the night with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and I brought water him water for his ablution and his needs. The Prophet said to me, “Ask.” I said, “I ask for your companionship in Paradise.” The Prophet said, “And anything else besides that?” I said, “That is all.” The Prophet said, “Then help me do it for you by prostrating often.
