Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of Al-Khaba'a by which Allah has not been worshipped with anything more beloved than it
Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا علي بن بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس ابن عبد الرحمن، عن هشام بن سالم، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: ما عبد الله بشئ أحب إليه من الخبء. قلت: وما الخبء؟ قال: التقية.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Ali bin Ibrahim, from Muhammed bin Isa, from Yunus ibn Abdil-Rahman, from Hisham bin Salem, that he said: I heard Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, say: Allah has not been worshipped with anything more beloved to him than Al-Khaba'a. I said: And what is Al-Khaba'a? He said: Taqiya.
