The natural reaction of the heart towards appreciation

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

“Hearts are predisposed to love someone who does them good and to detest someone who does them harm

 

Answer

‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith as baseless (batil).

(Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 365. Also see Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 3580)

 

One should not quote this as a Hadith.
