Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin:

Shahr ibn Hawshab said: I asked Umm Salamah: How did the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) read this verse: "For his conduct is unrighteous (innahu 'amalun ghayru salih". She replied: He read it: "He acted unrighteously" (innahu 'amila ghayra salih). Abu Dawud said: This tradition has been transmitted by Harun al-Nahwi and Musa b. Khalaf from Thabit as reported by the narrator 'Abd al-Aziz.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو كَامِلٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ الْمُخْتَارِ - حَدَّثَنَا ثَابِتٌ، عَنْ شَهْرِ بْنِ حَوْشَبٍ، قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ كَيْفَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقْرَأُ هَذِهِ الآيَةَ ‏{‏ إِنَّهُ عَمَلٌ غَيْرُ صَالِحٍ ‏}‏ فَقَالَتْ قَرَأَهَا ‏{‏ إِنَّهُ عَمِلَ غَيْرَ صَالِحٍ ‏}‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ وَرَوَاهُ هَارُونُ النَّحْوِيُّ وَمُوسَى بْنُ خَلَفٍ عَنْ ثَابِتٍ كَمَا قَالَ عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ ‏.‏
