حضرت محمد (صلی الله علیه و آله):
إنّ أقرَبَكُم مِنّي غَدا و أوجَبَكُم عَلَيَّ شَفاعَةً: أصدَقُكُم لِسانا، و أدّاكُم لِلأمانَةِ، و أحسَنُكُم خُلُقا، و أقرَبُكُم مِنَ الناسِ.
The Prophet Muhammad (S):
Verily the closest of you to me tomorrow [in the Hereafter], and the most eligible of you for my intercession are those who are the most truthful ones, the most conscientious at returning a trust placed in their care, the most good-natured, and the ones who have close ties with people.
