Hadith on Taqwa: When he is told to fear Allah

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the most beloved statement to Allah is for a servant to say, ‘Glory be to you, O Lord, and your praise. Blessed is your name, exalted is your majesty, and there is no god besides you.’ The most hateful statement to Allah is for a man to say to another man, ‘Fear Allah!’ and he says, ‘Mind yourself!’

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بن مسعود قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ أَحَبَّ الْكَلامِ إِلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يَقُولَ الْعَبْدُ سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ وَتَبَارَكَ اسْمُكَ وَتَعَالَى جَدُّكَ وَلا إِلَهَ غَيْرَكَ وَإِنَّ أَبْغَضَ الْكَلامِ إِلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يَقُولَ الرَّجُلُ لِلرَّجُلِ اتَّقِ اللَّهَ فَيَقُولُ عَلَيْكَ نَفْسَكَ
