hadith riwayat Tirmidhi: Jabir narrated that the Messenger of Allah said:

"Indeed the most beloved among you to me, and the nearest to sit with me on the Day of Judgment is the best of you in character. And indeed, the most disliked among you to me, and the one sitting furthest from me on the Day of Judgement are the Thartharun, and the Mutashaddiqun  and the Muthafaihiqun." They said: "O Messenger of Allah! We know about the Thartharun (talk a lot), and the Mutashaddiqun (boast a lot, boss people), but what about the Muthafaihiqun?"' He said:"The arrogant (showing off)."

Muhammad ibnu Habib: what is a wali? when he is in shade, he does not want to be in sun, when he is in sun, he does not want to be in shade.'
