The Most Beloved Speech to Allaah

On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him), the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) stated:

The most beloved speech to Allah is that the servant says: Glory be to You oh Allah, One who is far removed from any imperfections and for You is the praise. Blessed be Your name. And High is Your status. None has the right to be worshiped except for You. Indeed the most hated of the speech to Allah is that the person says to another person: ‘Fear Allah’ and then the person says in return: ‘Upon you is being concerned about yourself’ (i.e. worry about yourself by minding your own business).

Declared to have an authentic chain of narration by Shaykh al-Albaani in as-Silsilah as-Saheehah.

Original Arabic

إنَّ أحبَّ الكلامِ إلى اللَّهِ أن يقولَ العبدُ : سبحانَكَ اللَّهمَّ وبحمدِكَ ، وتبارَكَ اسمُكَ ، وتعالى جدُّكَ ، ولا إلَهَ غيرُكَ ، وإنَّ أبغضَ الكلامِ إلى اللَّهِ أن يقولَ الرَّجلُ للرَّجلِ : اتَّقِ اللَّهَ ، فيقولُ عليكَ نفسَكَ
