Pulpits of Pearls

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have said: “On the Day of Qiyamat, Allah Ta’ala will resurrect certain groups of people in such a state that their faces will be radiant with light, they will be sitting on pulpits of pearls and others will envy their lot. They will neither be from among the Prophets nor from among the martyrs. Somebody asked the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to let him have more details about those people so that he may be able to recognize them. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied: “They will be the people who belong to different families and different places, but assemble at one place for the love of Allah Ta’ala and are engaged in His Zikr.”
