Is it correct that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once told Sayyiduna Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) “I like for you what I like for myself”?
Yes. This is correct. Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said this and then offered him some advices.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1826)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
