Is this a Hadith?
أوحى الله إِلَى إِبْرَاهِيم إِنِّي عليم أحب كل عليم
‘Allamah Tajud Din Subki and ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahumallah) have stated that they have not come across a chain for this narration. The narration should therefore not be quoted until it can be verified.
(Tabaqatush Shafi’iyyah Al Kubra, vol. 6 pg. 288 and Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 18)
Allah Ta’ala revealed to Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam), ‘I am the All Knowledgeable and I love those who are knowledgeable’
See an authentic virtue of knowledge here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
