On the authority of Abu al-âAbbas Sahl bin Saâad as-Saâidee (r) who said:
A man came to the Prophet (s) and said, âO Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and the people to love me.â So he (s) said, âRenounce the world and Allah will love you, and renounce what the people possess and the people will love you.â A hasan hadeeth related by Ibn Majah and others with good chains of authorities.
