أحب الأعمال إلى الله إيمان بالله ثم صلة الرحم ثم الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر وأبغض الأعمال إلى الله الإشراك بالله ثم قطيعة الرحم» .
(حسن) … [ع] عن رجل من خثعم. الترغيب 3/223 المجمع 8/151)
It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“The most beloved deeds for Allah are belief in Allah, then maintaining family ties, then promotion of good and prevention of evil. And the most hated deeds for Allah are giving partnerships to Allah and then breaking off family ties. “
This hadith was narrated by Abu Ya’la (6839) from the words of a person from (the tribe) Has’am, may Allah be pleased with him.
Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith good. See Saheeh al-Jami ‘as-saghir (166), Sahih at-Targib wa-t-tarhib (2522).
In the isnad of this hadith, there is a transmitter who is not known, but this is a person from among the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, who was from the Has’am tribe. However, in accordance with the terminology of hadith, the unknown name of the companion does not harm the reliability of the hadith, for all the Companions were trustworthy. See at-Tag’lik at-ta’lik (5/21), Fathul-Bari (10/24).
