Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Among Allah’s servants are people who are neither Prophets nor martyrs, but whom the Prophets and martyrs will deem fortunate because of their high status with Allah.”
They asked: “O Messenger of Allah! Inform us of who they are.”
He said: “They are people who loved each other for Allah’s sake, without being related to one another or being tied to one another by the exchange of wealth. By Allah, their faces will be luminous and they will be light upon light. They will feel no fear when the people will be feeling fear and they will feel no grief when the people will be grieving.”
Note: This has always been considered a reference to the Sufis, who emulate the loving-kindness of the blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) as the perfect example of such attributes.
