November 9, 2017

Ibn Abi Dunya reported: Hasan Al-Basri, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “ A man among the companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: By the One in whose hand is my soul, if you wish I will swear to you by Allah that the most beloved servants to Allah are those who cause Allah to be loved by his servants and who strive in the earth with good will.”

عن أبي دنيا عن الحسن البصري قال رحمه الله إِنَّ رَجُلا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَئِنْ شِئْتُمْ لأُقْسِمَنَّ لَكُمْ بِاللَّهِ أَنَّ أَحَبَّ عِبَادِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُحَبِّبُونَ اللَّهَ إِلَى عِبَادِهِ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الأَرْضِ بِالنَّصِيحَةِ
