Ameerul Momineen Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) said – I complained to Allah’s Prophet (s.a.w.a.) about those who envied me. The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said – O Ali! Are you not happy that the first ones who go to Heaven are me and you. Then our offspring will enter after us. Then our followers will come from the right and left.
