Muhammad ibn Abdur Rauf Al-Manaawee commented on this hadeeth in Faydul Qadeer. He wrote :
1. The best people on the Day of Judgment refer to the Day of reward and punishment. That is the day where the veil will be lifted and whatever is unknown will become known. That is the day where the results for actions will be given.
2. Those who praise Allah highly refers to the people frequently praise Allah with His most beautiful characteristics: belonging to Him only. These people regularly praise Allah during good and bad times. Allah deserves praises from all mankind all the time.
