What is the authenticity of this narration,

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.”

قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَحَبُّ مَا تَعَبَّدَنِي بِهِ عَبْدِي إِلَيَّ النُّصْحُ لِي



This Hadith is recorded by Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) in his Musnad with a weak chain. However the subject matter in this Hadith is well supported through other narrations.

This Hadith is suitable to quote.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol.5 pg.254. Also see Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.1 pg.87)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
