Righteous Gentile & Pious (Hassid) Noahide
Question: Observant and faithful Noahides are called in Hebrew, "Chassidei Umot Ha'Olam." What does this mean?

Answer: Maimonides teaches in Mishneh Torah (Laws of Kings 8:11) that if a Gentile accepts to fulfill, and precisely observes, the 7 Noahide Commandments, and does so because G-d commanded those Divine Laws in the Torah and informed the Jewish People through Moses that the Gentiles had previously been commanded to fulfill them - then he merits to have a share in the World to Come. Maimonides describes this person as: "harei zeh mei'chassidei umot ha'olam." If you will ask someone who knows Hebrew to verify that this precisely means, "then this person is from among the pious persons of the nations of the world," he will say, "Yes."
