I would like to know the description of a person (his habits/profession/characteristic) who is equivalent or of higher status in hereafter than a pious Islamic scholar (Hafidh of Quran and Imam in a masjid who guides many people to Islamic way of life)?
If the answer is "none", does that mean I and every muslim should make effort in life to become an islamic scholar so that they are beneficial to the society and attain higher ranks in hearafter?.... If everyone aims for that what about people who are involved in business and politics who provide service and keep things in order (but don't get to do much other than obligatory acts)?... are they never going to be higher than a pious islamic scholar?
(sorry I have many questions but I thought someone with clear understanding might help me)
for your advice
