On the authority of Abu Al Abbas Sahl ibn Saad as-Saedi (Radhiallahu anhu), who said :
A man came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said:
“O Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and people to love me.”
He (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Renounce the world and Allah will love you, and renounce what people possess and people will love you.”
A Hasan (fair) Hadith related by Ibn Majah and others with good chains of authorities.
