THE ELITE BLESSED BY ALLAH

As-Salaam alaikum,
Sayyada A’isha, may Allah be pleased with her, reported that Allah’s Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once said:–

“Musa (alaihi salaam) once asked Allah Ta’ala, ‘My Lord, tell me about Your
Most Exalted people.’ Allah Ta’ala responded:-
‘They are the ones who hasten to do what I want first, just like an eagle glides
with precision towards what it desires. They are the servants of My creation who
hasten to serve the guests like a young servant does in the house of his master.
They feel offended if any of My injunctions are violated, just like an angry tiger
does, for an angry tiger attacks with impunity no matter how many people it
faces.’

Hence, among Allah’s creation, there is an elite He blessed…. they are servants who take off the shoes of comfort, and dislike honor and status in this world. The admonitions and warnings of the Glorious Qur’an deprive their eyes from resting at night; understanding the words of the Benevolent King humbles to submission their body, mind and gaze.”
