And they are happy to have you as their Imam

From Shaykh Abdul Hakim Murad's lecture

Narrated by Ammar bin Yassir:
I once heard Allah's Messenger, peace be upon him, say: "O Ali, Allah exalted is He has adorned you with an adornment which he has never adorned any of His servants with an adornment more beloved to Him than it. Which is the adornment of the saints, the good ones in the sight of Allah, doing without the things of this world, and He has made you somebody not relying on anything in the world, and the world hasn't any dependence on you, and He bestowed upon you the gift of the love of the poor, and he made them to be happy that they are your followers, and they are happy to have you as their Imam"
