Riyad as-Salihin - On it being disliked to say My self is disgusted (khabuthat) Hadith

Riyad as-Salihin (The Meadows of the Righteous)


by Imam Nawawi

329. Chapter: On it being disliked to say, "My self is disgusted (khabuthat)"

1739. 'A'isha reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "None of you should say, 'My self is disgusted (khabuthat),' but rather he should say, 'My self is annoyed (laqisat).'" [Agreed upon]

Scholars say that khabuthat means adulterated which is the meaning of laqisat. The expression khubth is disliked.
