At the Throne of Allah

عن عمرو بن ميمون ، قَالَ : لما رفع اللَّه موسى نجيا ، رأى رجلا متعلقا بالعرش ، فَقَالَ : يا رب من هَذَا ؟ قَالَ : هَذَا عبد من عبادي صالح ، إن شئت أخبرتك بعمله ، قَالَ : يا رب أخبرني ، قَالَ : كان لا يحسد الناس على ما آتاهم اللَّه من فضلَهُ.

Amr bin Maymun (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
When Allah raised Moses to him, and spoke to him, Moses saw a man attached to the Throne. He said: My Lord, who is that?
He said: he is one of My righteous servants. If you wish, I will tell you about his good works.
He said: My Lord, do tell me.
He said: He never envied people for what Allah gave them of His favor. *
