Allah (SWT) also described the best of His creatures with Al-'Uboodiyah to Him bv saying.
"As to the righteous, they shall drink of a cup containing a mixture of Kaafoor. A fountain where 'Ibaad-u-Allah (worshipers of Allah) do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance." [Ad-Dahr:5-6] and
"And 'Ibaad-u-Ar-Rahmaan (the worshipers of the Most Beneficent; Allah) are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the foolish address them, they say 'Peace (on you)!"' [Al-Furaaan:63]
And when Ash-Shaitaan (Satan) said.
"O my Lord! Because You misled me I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on earth and I shall mislead them all. Except Your chosen, guided 'Ibaad among them." [Al-Hijr: 39-40]
Then Allah (SWT) replied
"Certainly, you have no authority over 'Ibaad-ee (My worshipers), except those who follow you of the wrong-doers." [AI-Hijr:42]
