In this paper, we prove that any stable f-harmonic map from sphere ${\mathbb{S}}^n$ to Riemannian manifold (N, h) is constant, where f is a smooth positive function on ${\mathbb{S}}^n{\times}N$ satisfying one condition with n > 2. We also prove that any stable f-harmonic map ${\varphi}$ from a compact Riemannian manifold (M, g) to ${\mathbb{S}}^n$ (n > 2) is constant where, in this case, f is a smooth positive function on $M{\times}{\mathbb{S}}^n$ satisfying ${\Delta}^{{\mathbb{S}}^n}(f){\circ}{\varphi}{\leq}0$.
