Ahmad and at-Tabaraani reported on the authority of ‘Abdullah b. ‘Amr who said: I was with the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم one day at sunrise when he صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“A people will come on the Day of Judgment whose light will be like that of the sun. Abu Bakr said: will that be we O Messenger of Allah? He said: No, You have a great reward but they will be the poor immigrants who will be raised from all regions of the earth. Then he said: blessed are the strangers, blessed are the strangers, and blessed are the strangers. He was asked: who are the strangers? He said: The righteous people who will be few good people amongst many bad people; those who disobey them are more than those who obey them."
