Who are the cleverest of people?


SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) was asked: Who are the cleverest of people? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: Those who remember death more and prepare for it; they are the clever ones who have attained the honour of this world and the respect of the hereafter for themselves [1]. In another narration, the Prophet (PBUH) said: Remember death a lot, because remembering death will cleanse sins and make the human being unenthusiastic towards the world [2].
