Another narration regarding we have been informed of all deeds which will take us closer to Allah/Jannah

Question

What is the reference for this Hadith?

ما تركت شيئا يقربكم إلى الله إلا وأمرتكم به

I have ordered you to carry out every [deed] that will draw you close to Allah

 

Answer

There are several narrations which discuss a similar subject matter as to that in your question. See here and here

 

However, I have not come across these exact words in any primary Hadith source. A similar (mursal) narration is recorded in Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq with some changes in the wording:

ما تركت شيئا يقربكم من الجنة ويباعدكم عن النار إلا قد بينته لكم

I have explained to you every such [deed] that will draw you close to Jannah and distance you from the Fire.

(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 20100)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
