Consider the following hadith:

- حدثنا محمد بن بشار بندار، قال: حدثنا يحيى، عن عبيد الله، قال: حدثني خبيب بن عبد الرحمن، عن حفص بن عاصم، عن أبي هريرة، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: " سبعة يظلهم الله في ظله، يوم لا ظل إلا ظله: الإمام العادل، وشاب نشأ في عبادة ربه، ورجل قلبه معلق في المساجد، ورجلان تحابا في الله اجتمعا عليه وتفرقا عليه، ورجل طلبته امرأة ذات منصب وجمال، فقال: إني أخاف الله، ورجل تصدق، أخفى حتى لا تعلم شماله ما تنفق يمينه، ورجل ذكر الله خاليا ففاضت عيناه "

Translation:

Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu Anhu narrated that Rasulullah(ﷺ) said:

“Seven people Allah will shade them with His shade on the Day when there will be no shade except His shade (i.e., on the Day of Resurrection), and they are: A just ruler; a youth who grew up with the worship of Allah; a person whose heart is attached to the musjid; two persons who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah; a man whom a beautiful and high ranking woman seduces (for illicit relation), but he (rejects this offer by saying): 'I fear Allah'; a person who gives a charity and conceals it (to such an extent) that the left hand does not know what the right has given; and a person who remembers Allah in solitude and his eyes well up."[1]
