In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Narrated Abu-Sa’eed Al-Khudri (May Allah be satisfied with him); ‘The Prophet (SAWS) said: “The people of Paradise will look at the dwellers of the lofty mansions (a superior place in Paradise) in the same way as one looks at a brilliant star far away in the East or in the West on the horizon; all that is because of their superiority over one another (in rewards).” At that, the people said; ‘O Allah’s Messenger (SAWS) Are these lofty mansions for the Prophets which nobody else can reach?’ The Prophet (SAWS) replied: “No! By Allah in Whose Hands my life is, these are for men who believed in Allah and also believed in the Messengers.” (Bukhari).
