Abu Hurayrah said: ‘The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said:

‘Allah, be He be blessed and exalted, has angels who travel the highways seeking out the people of dhikr. When they find people remembering Allah, the Mighty and Majestic, they call out to one another, ‘Come to what you hunger for!’ and they enfold them with their wings, stretching up to the lowest heaven. Their Lord asked then, and He knows better than them,

‘What are My slaves saying?’ They say: ‘They are glorifying, magnifying, praising and extolling You.’

He asks, ‘Have they seen Me?’ They say, ‘No, by Allaah, they have not seen You.’

He asks, ‘And how would it be if they saw Me?’ They say, ‘They would be even more fervent and devoted in their praise and worship.’

He asks, ‘What are they asking me for?’ They say, ‘They ask You for Paradise.’

He asks, ‘And have they seen it?’ They say, ‘No, by Allaah, O Lord, they have not seen it.’

He asks, ‘And how would it be if they saw it?’ They say: ‘They would be even more eager for it and they would beseech You even more earnestly.’

He asks, ‘And what do they seek My protection from?’ They say, ‘From the Fire of Hell.’

He asks, ‘Have they seen it?’ They say, ‘No, by Allaah, they have not seen it.’

He asks, ‘And how would it be if they saw it?’ They say: ‘They would be even more afraid and anxious to escape it.’

Allah says: ‘You are My witnesses that I have forgiven them.’ One of the angels says: ‘So-and-so is not really one of them; he came (to the gathering) for some other reason.’

Allah says, ‘They were all in the gathering, and one of them will not be excluded (from forgiveness).’’’
