Is this Hadith reliable?
Allah Ta’ala said: “The most beloved act with which my servant worships me is sincerity for my sake.”
Kindly see the reference and authenticity of the Hadith here.
The Arabic text of the Hadith:
أحب ما تعبدني به عبدي إلي النصح لي
The more accurate translation is as follows:
Allah Ta’ala says: “The most beloved act with which my servant worships me is by being sympathetic to others/well wishing for my sake”
This translation is based on the explanation provided by ‘Allamah Sindhi (rahimahullah).
(Hashiyatus Sindhi ‘Ala Musnadil Imam Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 256)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
