HADITH OF THE DAY
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said: When the people would be herded together on the Day of Judgment a caller would call out to me: O the Messenger of Allah you have been appointed to reward your friends and the followers of your Ahle Bait (a.s.) who loved them in your way and for your sake supported them and hated your enemies. So you may give them whatever you like. Then I will say: My Lord, Paradise. Then I will be able to give any place I like in Paradise. And that is the Maqaam-e-Mahmood that I have been promised.
