Can you provide the reference for this narration:

إن من الإيمان أن يحب الرجل الرجل ليس بينهما نسب قريب ولا مال أعطاه إياه ولا محبة إلا لله عز وجل



Imam Abu Bakr Ibn Abid Dunya (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and not as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

(Kitabul Ikhwan, Hadith: 15)



It is part of Iman for a man to love another person, solely for the sake of Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla and not for any other motive.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
