حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏قُتَيْبَةُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏عَمْرٍو ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ‏ ‏رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ ‏ ‏أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَنْ أَسْعَدُ النَّاسِ بِشَفَاعَتِكَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَقَالَ لَقَدْ ظَنَنْتُ يَا ‏ ‏ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ ‏ ‏أَنْ لَا يَسْأَلَنِي عَنْ هَذَا الْحَدِيثِ أَحَدٌ أَوَّلُ مِنْكَ لِمَا رَأَيْتُ مِنْ حِرْصِكَ عَلَى الْحَدِيثِ ‏ ‏أَسْعَدُ النَّاسِ بِشَفَاعَتِي يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَنْ قَالَ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ خَالِصًا مِنْ قِبَلِ نَفْسِهِ

Abū Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “I asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, who will be the most fortunate of mankind in receiving your intercession on the Day of Resurrection?’ He replied, ‘I certainly thought, O Abū Hurairah, that no one would ask me about this ḥadīth before you, because of what I noticed concerning your great desire for [learning] ḥadīth. The most fortunate of mankind to receive my intercession on the Day of Resurrection will be those who say ‘Lā ilāha illa Allah’ sincerely, of their own accord.’”

(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī)
