A Hadith Qudsi regarding worshipping Allah who has created us and sustains us

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith Qudsi?

Allah Ta’ala says: “O son of Adam, I created you, sustain you and you worship someone else? Son of Adam, I call you and you flee from me? Son of Adam, I remember you and you forget me?”

 

Answer

Imam Khalili (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said that these words were revealed to a Nabi of the past. ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration and says that these words were in the Injil [A Divine book if the past].

This narration has been transmitted through a weak chain as pointed out by Imam Khalili (rahimahullah) and others.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
