Under the shade

Seven kinds of people are assured to be sheltered under the shade of God on the Day of Judgment (since there will be no shade except the shade of God on that Day)...they are:

> a just ruler…
> a young man who passed his youth in the worship and service of God...
> one whose heart is attached to the mosque (place of worship)...
> two people who love each other for the sake of God...
> a man who is invited to sin...but declines, saying 'I fear God'...
> one who spends his charity in secret, without making a show...
> and one who remembers God in solitude so that his eyes overflow.

~ Riyadh-us-Salaheen, Hadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) 376
