When looking through the Quran, one will come across many instances whereby Allah explicitly mentions that He loves a certain type of person. These are 8 types of people Allah loves.
1) THOSE WHO DO GOOD
Allah says, “And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw (yourselves) with your (own) hands into destruction ( by refraining). And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.”
2. THOSE WHO REPENT
He says, “… Allah loves those who are constantly repentant…”
3. PEOPLE WHO PURIFY THEMSELVES
Allah says, “And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you… (Allah) loves those who purify themselves.”
4. THE PATIENT ONES
“…And Allah loves the steadfast.” Quran (3:146).
5. GOD CONSCIOUS PEOPLE
“But yes, whoever fulfills his commitment and fears Allah – then indeed, Allah loves those who fear him.”
6. THOSE THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN ALLAH
“… And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely (upon Him).”
7. THE JUST ONES
“(They are) avid listeners to falsehood, devourers of (what is) unlawful. So if they come to you, (O Muhammad), judge between them or turn away from them. And if you turn away from them – never will they harm you at all. And if you judge between them with justice. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.”
8. ONE WHO WHEN THEY FIGHT (EVIL) IN HIS WAY, THEY DO SO UNITED
“Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in a row as though they are (single) structure joined firmly.”
Let us try and perfect these 8 characteristics in order to gain the pleasure of Allah.
