Dawud’s (‘alayhis salam) piety

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Did Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say this?

‘Dawud (‘alayhis salam) was the one who would worship [Allah] the most out of all men’

 

Answer

Yes. Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration and has graded it sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3490)

 

‘Allamah Tibi (rahimahullah) states that this is restricted to Dawud’s (‘alayhis salam) time. [i.e. Dawud ‘alayhis salam was the one who would worship [Allah] the most out of all men in his time]

(Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 3490)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
