From Surat al-Furqan 25 verse 72

وَإِذَا مَرُّواْ بِاللَّغْوِ مَرُّوا كِراماً

...."and whenever they pass by [people engaged in] frivolity, they pass on with dignity..."

Imam Jaafar al-Sadeq (ra) states:
"Dignity is leaving what does not concern you. Allah (swt) has slaves whose feet are on the ground, whose eyes are on the Heaven and whose spirits (Rooh) are with Allah, those are the Muridun *** : their bodies in this lower world, their Hearts in the next and their spirits with the Master (Mawla, Allah (swt)).

from Arada (wanted): the ones who are wanting the Face of Allah, generally the travellers on the Path or more specifically the followers of a Tariqa.
