David on Virtues: Allah loves those who perform these ten righteous deeds

Fadalah ibn Ubaid reported: David, peace be upon him, asked his Lord the Exalted about the most beloved deeds to him. Allah said, “They are ten deeds. If you do them, O David, you will not mention any of my creation but with good, you will not backbite any of my creation, and you will not envy any of my creation.” David said, “O Lord, I am unable to do these three, but I will hold fast to seven. My Lord, tell me about the most beloved to you, that I might love them for your sake.” Allah said, “They are a ruler who has mercy on people and judges people the way he judges himself, and a man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it seeking the countenance of Allah and in obedience to Allah, and a man who spends his youth and time in obedience to Allah, and a man whose heart is attached to the mosques due to his love for him and them, and a man who is seduced by a beautiful woman but he leaves her due to his fear of Allah, and a man who knows Allah is with him and they have pure hearts and wholesome earnings and they love each other for the sake of my glory and they remind each other of me, and a man whose eyes overflow with tears from the fear of Allah the Exalted.”

عَنْ فَضَالَةَ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ أَنَّ دَاوُدَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ سَأَلَ رَبَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَنْ يُخْبِرَهُ بِأَحَبِّ الْأَعْمَالِ إِلَيْهِ فَقَالَ عَشْرًا إِذَا فَعَلْتَهُنَّ يَا دَاوُدُ لَا تَذْكُرَنَّ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِي إِلَّا بِخَيْرٍ وَلَا تَغْتَابَنَّ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِي وَلَا تَحْسُدَنَّ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِي قَالَ دَاوُدُ يَا رَبِّ هَؤُلَاءِ الثَّلَاثُ لَا أَسْتَطِيعُ فَأَمْسِكْ عَلَّي السَّبْعَ وَلَكِنْ يَا رَبِّ أَخْبِرْنِي بَأَحِبَّائِكَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أُحِبُّهُمْ لَكَ قَالَ ذُو سُلْطَانٍ يَرْحَمُ النَّاسَ وَيَحْكُمُ لِلنَّاسِ كَمَا يَحْكُمُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَرَجُلٌ آتَاهُ اللَّهُ مَالًا فَهُوَ يُنْفِقُ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ اللَّهِ وَفِي طَاعَةِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَرَجُلٌ يُفْنِي شَبَابَهُ وَقُوتَهُ فِي طَاعَةِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَرَجُلٌ كَانَ قَلْبُهُ مُعَلَّقًا فِي الْمَسَاجِدِ مِنْ حُبِّهِ إِيَّاهَا وَرَجُلٌ لَقِيَ امْرَأَةً حَسْنَاءَ فَأَمْكَنَتْهُ مِنْ نَفْسِهَا فَتَرَكَهَا مِنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ وَرَجُلٌ حَيْثُ كَانَ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى مَعَهُ نَقِيَّةٌ قُلُوبُهُمْ طَيِّبٌ كَسْبُهُمْ يَتَحَابُّونَ بِجَلَالِي أُذْكَرُ بِهِمْ وَيُذْكَرُونَ بِذِكْرِي وَرَجُلٌ فَاضَتْ عَيْنَاهُ مِنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ
