On Those Who Will Be Envied by the Prophets & Martyrs on the Day

Bismillahi Rahmaani Raheem,

With the name of Allah, the most loving & caring, the always loving and caring,

Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: the Prophet (ﷺ) as saying:

There are people from the servants of Allah who are neither prophets nor martyrs; the prophets and martyrs will envy them on the Day of Resurrection for their rank from Allah, the Most High.

They (the people) asked: Tell us, Messenger of Allah, who are they?

He replied: They are people who love one another for the spirit of Allah (i.e. the Qur’an), without having any mutual kinship and giving property to one. I swear by Allah, their faces will glow and they will be (sitting) in (pulpits of) light. They will have no fear (on the Day) when the people will have fear, and they will not grieve when the people will grieve.

He then recited the following Qur’anic verse: “Behold! Verily for the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

As salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi, wa barakaatuh,

May peace of every aspect be upon you, along with the mercy of God and also His blessing


Sunan Abu Dawud: 3527
