Caution: Translations of Quran and Ḥadīth may lead to possible misapplications and misinterpretations. This site is intended for students of sacred knowledge that are proficient in comprehending classical Arabic and have a strong foundation in Islamic sciences. Also note that religious injunctions rely on several aspects beyond what one may glean through reading individual aḥādīth.

God only gives faith to the one He loves

hakim:94Daʿlaj b. Aḥmad al-Sijzī > Mūsá b. Hārūn and Ṣāliḥ b. Muqātil > ʿAlī b. Ḥamshādh > Abū al-Muthanná al-ʿAnazī and Aḥmad b. ʿAlī al-Abbār > Aḥmad b. Sahl b. Ḥamdawayh > Ṣāliḥ b. Muḥammad b. Ḥabīb al-Ḥāfiẓ > Aḥmad b. Janāb al-Miṣṣīṣī > ʿĪsá b. Yūnus > Sufyān al-Thawrī > Zubayd > Murrah > ʿAbdullāh

the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Allah has divided between you your characters just as he has divided between you your provisions. Allah gives worldly ˹provisions˺ to the one He loves and to the one whom He does not love, but He does not faith except to the one He loves."  

This ḥadīth has a sound chain and is solitary from Aḥmad b. Janāb al-Miṣṣīṣī. In this book, our criteria is that we collect aḥādīth from credible narrators if we do not find any hidden defects in them. We have found two supporting evidences of ʿĪsá b. Yūnus and one of them meets the criteria of this book and it is from Sufyān b. ʿUqbah, the brother of Qabīṣah.

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ «إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَسَمَ بَيْنَكُمْ أَخْلَاقَكُمْ كَمَا قَسَمَ بَيْنَكُمْ أَرْزَاقَكُمْ۔ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يُعْطِي الدُّنْيَا مَنْ يُحِبُّ وَمَنْ لَا يُحِبُّ وَلَا يُعْطِي الْإِيمَانَ إِلَّا مَنْ يُحِبُّ۔»  

«هَذَا حَدِيثٌ صَحِيحُ الْإِسْنَادِ تَفَرَّدَ بِهِ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ جَنَابٍ الْمِصِّيصِيُّ۔ وَهُوَ شَرْطٌ مِنْ شَرْطِنَا فِي هَذَا الْكِتَابِ أَنَّا نُخَرِّجُ أفْرَادَ الثِّقَاتِ إِذَا لَمْ نَجِدْ لَهَا عِلَّةً۔ وَقَدْ وَجَدْنَا لِعِيسَى بْنِ يُونُسَ فِيهِ مُتَابِعَيْنِ: أَحَدُهُمَا مِنْ شَرْطِ هَذَا الْكِتَابِ وَهُوَ سُفْيَانُ بْنُ عُقْبَةَ أَخُو قَبِيصَةَ» صحيح الإسناد

[Machine] "On the authority of Abdullah, he said, 'They divide the mercy of your Lord.' (Surah Az-Zukhruf, 43:32) Abdullah then said, 'I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, saying, "Indeed, Allah has divided your behaviors amongst you just as He has divided your provisions. Indeed, Allah gives the worldly goods to those whom He loves and those whom He does not love, but does not give the religion except to those whom He loves. So, whoever is given the religion by Allah has indeed been loved by Him."'"

God only gives faith to the one He loves

hakim:7301Abū al-Ḥasan ʿAlī b. Muḥammad b. ʿUqbah al-Shaybānī Bi-al-Kūfah > Ibrāhīm b. Isḥāq al-Zuhrī > Yaʿlá And Muḥammad Āb.ā ʿUbayd > Abān b. Isḥāq > al-Ṣabbāḥ b. Muḥammad al-Bajalī > Murrah al-Hamdānī > ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd

the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Allah has divided between you your characters just as he has divided between you your provisions. Allah gives wealth to the one He loves and to the one whom He does not love, but He does not give faith except to the one He loves. And whomever Allah gives faith to then He indeed loves him. I swear by the One who has the soul of Muḥammad in his Hand, a servant does not have Islam until his heart is in submission, and a servant does not have Islam until his neighbor is safe from his wickedness."  

This ḥadīth has a sound chain they did not collect it.
