It is reported that a man once came to ‘Abdullāh b. ‘Umar – Allāh be pleased with him – and said:

I love you for Allāh.

Ibn ‘Umar replied:

Then bear witness that I hate you for Allāh!

The man asked, “Why?”

He replied, “Because you sing in your adhān (call to prayer), and you take a wage [for calling it]!”
