The Hadith: 'O My servant, obey me and you will be a godly servant...'

Q: I heard a Hadith Qudsy (Revelation from Allah in the Prophet’s words) repeated by some people, which states, “O My servant, obey me and you will be a godly servant who orders a thing to be and it will be.” Is this Hadith Sahih (authentic) or not?

A: This Hadith is not found in any of the books of Sunnah. Its meaning also shows that it is Mawdu‘ (fabricated Hadith), as it equals between a weak human being and the Creator, and makes them partners! Indeed, High Exalted is Allah above having a partner in His Dominion.Believing in this is considered Kufr (disbelief) and Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship), as Allah (Exalted be He) is the One Who orders anything to be and it will be, as He says (what means), Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, "Be!" - and it is!
