Is this a Hadith?
Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam ) said:
“The creation are the dependents of Allah and the most beloved of the creation to Allah are those who are the most caring to their/His dependents.”
This Hadith is recorded in the following sources on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu):
Musnad Abu Ya’la, Hadith: 3302
Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 6947
Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 7045-7047
The following sources have recorded this on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu):
Al-Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 10033
Al-Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 5537
Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 7048
This Hadith is weak, but suitable for encouraging the act of being kind and good towards others.
