These seven types of people are clearly mentioned in the hadîth.

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Seven are the persons whom Allah would give protection with His Shade on the Day when there would be no shade but His (i.e. on the Day of Judgment, and they are): a just ruler, a youth who grew up with the worship of Allah; a person whose heart is attached to the mosques; two brothers in Islam who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah; a man whom a beautiful woman of high rank seduces for illicit sex but he rejects this offer by saying: "I fear Allah"; a person who gives charity and conceals it to such an extent that his right hand does not know what his left has given, and a person who remembered Allah in private and his eyes shed tears. [Sahîh Muslim]
