إِنَّ اللهَ لَيَرْضَى عَنِ الْعَبْدِ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ الاَْكْلَةَ أَوْ يَشْرَبَ الشَّرْبَةَ فَيَحْمَدَ اللهَ عَلَيْهَا

Allah will be pleased with His servant if, when he eats something or drinks something, he praises Allah for it."

This was also recorded by Muslim, At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i.

Malik said about Zayd bin Aslam;

"He used to praise Allah in all circumstances."

أَنَا سَيِّدُ وَلَدِ ادَمَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَة

I will be the leader of the sons of Adam on the Day of Resurrection...

He quoted the Hadith at length, and in the Hadith, the Prophet said;

فَيَأْتُونَ نُوحًا فَيَقُولُونَ يَا نُوحُ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَوَّلُ الرُّسُلِ إِلَى أَهْلِ الاَْرْضِ وَقَدْ سَمَّاكَ اللهُ عَبْدًا شَكُورًا فَاشْفَعْ لَنَا إِلَى رَبِّك

They will come to Nuh and will say, `O Nuh, you were the first of the Messengers sent to the people of earth, and Allah called you grateful servant, so intercede for us with your Lord.'
