The most hated speech in the sight of Allah Ta’ala

Is the Hadith mentioned below authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The most hated speech to Allah is when a man says to another man, ‘Fear Allah!’ And he replies, ‘Worry about your own self!”‘



Yes it is. Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in ‘Amalul Yawmi Wal Laylah, on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a reliable chain of narrators.

(‘Amalul Yawmi Wal Laylah, Hadith: 849 -As Sunanul Kubra, Hadith: 10619-)


Imams Bayhaqi and Abul Qasim Al Isbahani (rahimahumallah) have also recorded this Hadith.

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 621 and At Targhib Wat Tarhib, Hadith: 766)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
