He reserved for them the highest of Heavens, for they are the wisest of people." Al-Bara' added: "We asked: 'O Messenger of Allah, in what way are they wisest?' He replied: "They mainly endeavor to please their Lord, and they renounce curiosity, aspiration for leadership and comfort in this world, hence, the trials of the world are light and easy in their eyes, knowing that their exercise of patience in this world for a short while will help them attain permanent peace in their permanent life hereafter."
