Question

Kindly provide the reference, authentication, and Arabic wording of the following narration:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “Allah looked into the hearts of His slaves and found that the heart of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was the best of all His slaves’ hearts. So He chose him for Himself and sent him with His Message. Then He looked into the hearts of all His slaves after the heart of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and He found that the hearts of his companions were the best of all His slaves’ hearts, so He made them the helpers of His Prophet, fighting for the sake of his religion. So what the Muslims think is good, is good before Allah, and whatever the Muslims think is bad, is bad before Allah.” Read More »
