Ibn Al-Mukandar said to Abu Hazim: “O Abu Hazim, there are so many people who meet me and ask Allah to give me blessings!
I do not even know them, and I have never done anything for them (yet they do this)!
Abu Hazim replied by saying: “Do not think that (their dua for you and their show of love) is because of (your actions). Rather it is (all) from Allah, so thank him!
Then he recited:
((Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – the Most Merciful will appoint for them affection.))
