أتينا حذيفة فقلنا : حدثنا من أقرب الناس من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم هديا ودلا فنأخذ عنه ونسمع منه ، قال : كان أقرب الناس هديا ودلا وسمتا برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ابن مسعود حتى يتوارى منا في بيته ولقد علم المحفوظون من أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أن ابنأم عبد هو من أقربهم إلى الله زلف

Abdur Rahman ibn Yazid reported that they went to Hudhayfah (رضي الله عنه) and requested him to narrate to them about one who was most close of all people to Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in style of living and habits that they might learn from him and listen to him.’ He said,

“The closest of men to Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in way of life and habits is Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) so much so that he would visit his house more regularly than us and knew his confidential affairs more than other sahabah. Indeed, Ibn Umm Abd (Abdullah ibn Mas’ud) was the closest to Allah than the others.’

[Ahmed 23468, Bukhari 3762 and Tirmidhi]
