Ibn Mas’ud on Dhikr: Remembrance more beloved to me than spending

Hilal ibn Yasar reported: Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “That I declare the glory of Allah many times is more beloved to me than spending the same number of coins in the way of Allah.”

عَنْ هِلَالِ بْنِ يَسَافٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قَالَ لَأَنْ أُسَبِّحَ تَسْبِيحَاتٍ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنْ أَنْ أُنْفِقَ عَدَدَهُنَّ دَنَانِيرَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ
