عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ أَنْ تُؤْتَى رُخَصُهُ، كَمَا يُحِبُّ أَنْ تُؤْتَى عَزَائِمُهُ».
[صحيح] - [رواه ابن حبان]

Ibn ‘Abbās (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Allah loves that His dispensations be taken as He loves that His obligations be observed."
Sahih/Authentic. - [Ibn Hibbaan]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) informs us in this Hadīth that Allah Almighty loves that His servants take the dispensations He gives to make the rulings and acts of worship easier for them, due to some excuse. Allah loves this because a person taking a dispensation does not disdain to consider permissible what the Shariah declares permissible. Moreover, the dispensations make things easy for people. Indeed, Allah's love for His servants taking these dispensations is like His love for their observance of the duties He ordained on them. His command is the same regarding the dispensations and the obligations. Similar to this Hadīth is the verse that says: {Allah wants ease for you and does not want hardship for you} [Surat al-Baqarah: 185]. Examples of dispensations include wiping over the leather socks, shortening prayers during travel, and not observing fast in illness.
