Awliya Allah

Holy Prophet (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

Among Allāh’s servants there are some who are neither prophets nor martyrs but on the Day of Judgement the prophets and the martyrs will envy their grades. The Companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allāh, tell us, who are those people?’ He replied: ‘those are the people who love one another on Allāh’s count. They are neither related to one another nor do they have any property to exchange. I swear on Allāh that they will have faces of light,they will be on pulpits of light. They will not have any fear when others will be afraid, they will not have any grief when others will be aggrieved.’ Then he recited the verse: Beware! No doubt, there is no fear for the friends of Allāh nor shall they be sad and sorrowful.(Yūnus 10:62)

♣ One of the companions of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) pitched a tent on a grave. He did not know that there was grave. It was the grave of human beings, who recited Surah Mulk to the end of it. He came to the Holy Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and said, “Ya RasoolAllah! (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), I pitched my tent over a grave without knowing that it was a grave. The man inside recited Surah Mulk to its end.” The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said, “It is the rescuer. It rescues from punishment of the grave.
