Surah Nisa Verse 69


وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ
وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا

“And all who obey Allah and the Messenger are with those upon whom Allah has bestowed favours, of the prophets, and the truthful ones, and the martyrs, and the righteous; and excellent are these companions!”
