Is the following a Hadith?

“When one of you does something, Allah loves that you do it with excellence/thoroughly”



Yes, the above is a Hadith which is recorded by Imam Abu Ya’la and Imam Tabarani (rahimahumallah).

(Musnad Abu Ya’la, Hadith: 4386 and Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 901)


The Hadith is suitable to quote, despite it’s slight weakness.

(Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 4 pg. 98 and At Taysir of ‘Allamah Munawi, vol. 1 pg. 269. Also see Al Maqasidul Hasanah, pg. 122)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
