A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said, “O Messenger of Allah, guide me to such an action which, if I do Allah will love me and the people will also love me.” He (ﷺ) said, “Have no desire for this world (you may have it in hand  but not in heart or aim), Allah will love you; and have no desire for what people possess, and the people will love you.”[Ibn Majah]
