أَحِبَّ لِلنَّاسِ مَا تُحِبُّ لِنَفْسِكَ
(صحيح) … [تخ ع طب ك هب] عن يزيد بن أسيد. الصحيحة 72)
It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Wish for people what you wish for yourself!”
This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari in Tarih al-Kabir (3155), Abu Ya’la (5865), at-Tabarani in al-Mu’jam al-Kabir, al-Hakim (4/168), al -Baykhakyi in “Shu’ab al-Iman” (11129) from the words of Yazid ibn Usayd, may Allah be pleased with him.
Al-Hakim called the hadith isnad authentic, and al-Dhahabi agreed with him.
Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Sahih al-Jami ‘as-saghir (180), al-Silsilah al-sahiha (72).
In the version cited by al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak, it is reported that Yazid ibn Asad told that (once) the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked him: “O Yazid ibn Asad, do you want Paradise? I answered: “Yes!”, – (to this the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “So wish for your Muslim brother what you want for yourself (yourself)!”
