Narrated Anas bin Malik:

An Ansari woman came to the Prophet in the company of her children, and the Prophet ﷺ said to her, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, you are the most beloved people to me!" And he repeated the statement thrice.
حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ، حَدَّثَنَا وَهْبُ بْنُ جَرِيرٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّ امْرَأَةً، مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ أَتَتِ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَعَهَا أَوْلاَدٌ لَهَا فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏
"‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ إِنَّكُمْ لأَحَبُّ النَّاسِ إِلَىَّ ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَهَا ثَلاَثَ مِرَارٍ‏.‏
