Qualities of Allah's Servants...

[25:63] And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!";

[
25:64] Those who spend the night in adoration of their Lord prostrate and standing;

[
25:65] Those who say, "Our Lord! avert from us the Wrath of Hell, for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievous,-

[
25:66] "Evil indeed is it as an abode, and as a place to rest in";

[
25:67] Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes);

[
25:68] Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit fornication; - and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.

[
25:69] (But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy,-

[
25:70] Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful,

[
25:71] And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to Allah with an (acceptable) conversion;-

[
25:72] Those who witness no falsehood, and, if they pass by futility, they pass by it with honourable (avoidance);

[
25:73] Those who, when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord, droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind;

[
25:74] And those who pray, "Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."

[25:75] Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven, because of their patient constancy: therein shall they be met with salutations and peace,

[
25:76] Dwelling therein;- how beautiful an abode and place of rest!
(Al-Quran)
