Description: The Prophet (S) said, ‘There are four distinguishing marks of the humble ones: they pay constant attention to Allah in private and in public, they carry out good works, they contemplate about the Day of Resurrection, and they engage in intimate supplication with Allah.’

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) : أمّا عَلامَةُ الخاشِعِ فأربَعةٌ : مُراقَبَةُ اللّه‏ِ في السِّرِّ والعَلانِيَةِ ، ورُكوبُ الجَميلِ ، والتَّفَكُّرُ ليَومِ القِيامَةِ ، والمُناجاةُ للّه‏ِ .
