Is this narration reliable?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Verily Allah loves the young person who spends his youth in Allah’s obedience.”



Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration.

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 5 pg. 360)


The chain consists of an extremely weak narrator. Many Muhaddithun have declared him a liar.

(Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 4 pg. 238, number: 7588 and Taqribut Tahdhib: 6225)
