The Narration of Ibn Umar, "By Allaah if I fasted all day...... but had no love for those who obey Allaah and hatred for...."


As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa raḥmatu ʾllāh. Is this a authentic narration?
‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said: “By Allah, if I fasted all day without eating, prayed all night without sleeping, spent all of my wealth in the Path of Allah, died the day I died, but had no love in my heart for those who obey Allah, and no hatred in my heart for those who disobey Allah, none of this would benefit me in the least.” [Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm ad-dīn]


Wa alaykum salaam wa rehmatullaahi wa barakaatuh

This narration is mentioned in Ihyaa Uloom ad-Deen of al-Ghazzaali (2/160). It could not be found in any other book among the vast encyclopedia of Hadeeth narrations. And in Ihyaa Uloom ad-Deen, it is mentioned without a chain. So it is not permissible to attribute this saying to Sayyidunah Abdullah bin Umar (radiallah anhu)

Wallaahu a'lam.
