The Loveof Allah – 7 Qualities that Allah Loves – Allah Loves those who turn to him

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. He guides His obedient servants to His love and admits the doers of good to His Paradise. I bear witness that there is no deity save Allah, having no associates. I also bear witness that our Master Mohammed is the Servant of Allah and His Messenger. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his pure blessed family and companions, and all those who follow them in righteousness till the Day of Judgment?

As to what follows,

I urge you, O servants of Allah, and myself to be aware that you are asked to obey Him the Most High, for He loves His obedient servants. The Almighty says, "Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him]." (9: 4).

Dear Muslims,

Allah the Most Exalted has urged us to show sincerity in His love, for He says, "Say, [O Mohammed], 'If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you." (3: 31). The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) also urged his companions to have a profound love in their hearts for Allah the Almighty and strive to draw closer to Him, the Most Exalted, by performing plentiful of righteous deeds.

In this context, many of the companions of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) used to ask him about the deeds that are conducive to please Allah the All-High and help them to win His love. This calls for a question on the deeds that Allah, the Most Gracious, loves most and enjoins His servants to perform much. The answer to this question is that the actions that Allah the Almighty loves are many. Yet, the most important of such acts is to be steadfast in performing the prescribed acts of worship.

On this account, it was narrated that Abdullah Ibn Masood, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "I asked the Prophet (Peace be upon him): 'Which deed is loved most by Allah?' He (Peace be upon him) said, 'To offer prayers at their early (very first) stated times'."

So, you are urged, O Servants of Allah, to maintain strictly your prayers, for Allah, the Most Exalted, says, "maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers and [in particular] the middle prayer and stand before Allah, devoutly obedient."  (2: 238). Draw closer to your Lord by doing all acts of obedience that He loves. You can even go nearer to Him, the Most Exalted, by observing all kinds of Nawafil (supererogatory acts of worship), whether prayers, charity or any other acts of righteousness. While, so doing, seek the love of Allah, the Most Sublime, and the attainment of his guidance.

An accentuation of this can be seen in the following narration for the Messenger of Allah about the things that His Lord loves most. He (Peace be upon him) said that Allah says, "And the most beloved things with which My servant comes nearer to Me, is what I have enjoined upon him; and My servant keeps on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (praying or doing extra deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him, so I become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks Me, I will give him, and if he asks My protection (Refuge), I will protect him; (i.e. give him My Refuge)."

Thus, whoever observes such acts of obedience and hastens to perform acts of goodness will, definitely, win the love of Allah and His satisfaction. As a result, Allah, the Most Compassionate will continue blessing them with His innumerable bounties. In this regard, it was reported that Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "The Prophet (Peace be upon him) was asked, 'Which deed is most beloved to Allah?' He (Peace be upon him) said, 'The most regular and constant deed even if it were little'."

In this Hadith there is an indication to the moderation that Allah the Almighty and His Messenger (Peace be upon him) love. Such moderation is based upon persistence on performing obligatory acts of worship as well as working as much hard as possible in accomplishing Nawafil, doing good deeds and adopting the approach of easiness. This way, the Muslim can, by Allah's grace, achieve betterment through excellence in obeying their Lord, and ultimately win His love and satisfaction.

Dear Muslims,

Love of Allah the Almighty requires us to know and do what Allah loves. Thus, it is good to know that in terms of relationships between Muslims, Allah loves Ihsan (kindness or perfection). The Most Exalted says, "And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good." (2: 195). The kindness that Allah the Almighty loves can be achieved through fearing Allah and being conscious of Him in all our word of mouth and deeds too. As such, when a Muslim should speak, one must say the best of words, and when carrying out a task, one must seek perfection and do it to the possible best.

Moreover, one should be kind towards others; give to those who are deprived, pardon whoever wrongs him, repel evil by that deed which is better, be patient and show persistence. While so doing, one should show persistence and seek the satisfaction of Allah and His love. Allah, the Most Exalted says, "and Allah loves the steadfast." (3: 146).

Amongst the other actions that are most beloved to Allah, the Almighty, is trusting Allah and relying upon Him, for the Almighty says, "indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him]." (3: 159). There is no doubt those who do their best, take the necessary means and rely upon their Lord, knowing that His arrangement is better that theirs, will cherish tranquility and assurance of the heart. Truly, those are the fruits of treating others in the manner that Allah loves, showing them leniency and tolerance. The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said, "Indeed Allah loves tolerance in selling, tolerance in buying, and tolerance in repaying."

Such tolerance entails that one should strive to be fair in all his dealings and avoid taking that which is not his right. Truly, such beautiful qualities are amongst those loved by Allah the Almighty, for He says, "indeed, Allah loves those who act justly." (5: 42).

O Servants of Allah,

This a precious opportunity to also advise each other on the values and ethics that Allah, the Most Exalted loves. Such values include beauty. This was emphasized by the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) when a man asked him, "O Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)! Verily, a person likes his dress to be nice and his sandals to be nice." Thereupon, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, "Indeed, Allah is beautiful and loves beauty."

In this context, beauty should be manifested in one's words of mouth, deeds and appearance. The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said, "Indeed Allah loves to see the results of his favors upon His servants." That is to say, in their outlook, good dressing and elegance. What more, Allah further loves to see the effects of His bounties to be reflected in people's hearts. This can be shown by thanking Him and acknowledging His favors. Allah the Almighty says, "And whatever you have of favor - it is from Allah." (16 : 53). So, one should be grateful to Allah the Most Giving for all His favors, whether small or big.

Urging for this, the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said, "Indeed Allah is pleased with the servant who, upon eating his food or drinking his drink, he praises Him for it." Here, "pleased" means loves his servant to do so. In fact, thanking Allah for His bounties and recognizing that whatever favors one has is bestowed by Allah and that all provisions are in His hand, is conducive to impart purity to the soul and heart, which will, in return, be filled with earnest love to Allah.

Such sincerity can be manifested in cooperation with others in all that which is good and performing acts of kindness. As a result, people will love one another and become amongst those whom Allah loves and thus raise their status in this world and in the Hereafter. In this regard, the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) related that Allah the Most Sublime said, "Those who love each other for the sake of My Majesty shall be upon podiums of light, and they will be admired by the Prophets and the martyrs."

With this in mind, let us invoke Allah the Almighty to grant that we love Him and love those He loves. O Allah, please make us love all deeds that may draw us nearer to your love. 

May Allah the Almighty guide us all to obey Him and obey His Messenger Mohammed (Peace be upon him) and obey those He have commanded us to obey in line with His orders: "O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority amongst you." (4 : 59).

7 Qualities that Allah Loves

1. Repentance: “Indeed Allah loves those who are constantly repentant.” (Holy Quran 2:222)

2. Purification: “Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.” (Holy Quran 2:222)

3. God-consciousness: “Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].” (Holy Quran 09:04)

4. Goodness and perfecting our good deeds: “And Allah loves the doers of good.” (Holy Quran 3:134) The complete verse reads, “Who spend [in the cause of Allah] during ease and hardship and who restrain anger and who pardon the people - and Allah loves the doers of good.”

There are four actions mentioned in this verse by which one can do good:

a) Spending in the cause of Allah in times of ease

b) Spending in the cause of Allah in times of difficulty

c) Restraining anger: Sufyan ibn ‘Abd-Allah al-Thaqafi said to the Prophet (peace be upon him), “O Messenger of Allah, tell me something that will be of benefit to me, and make it brief and concise.” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied, “Do not get angry, and Paradise will be yours.” (At-Tabarani)

d) Pardoning people, by overlooking their mistakes and faults. This is also related to restraining anger towards another person. And even better than that is to pardon people and to forgive them.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.” (Al-Mu’jam al-Awsat, Hasan by Shaykh Al-Albaani)

We should strive to be good to others so that we can attain the love of Allah. Doing good in Islam is not limited to these four points, as there are many, many ways to do good.

5. Trust in Allah: “Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him]”. (Holy Quran 3:159)

6. Justice: “Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.” (Holy Quran 05:42) The principle of justice in Islam applies to everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, or status.

7. Patience: “And Allah loves the steadfast.” (Holy Quran 03:146)

There are three types of patience:

a) Patience in adversity: that one does not complain or feel despair at his situation. Rather he submits to the will of Allah and bears the difficulties and tests with patience. An example of this is the Prophet Ayyub peace be upon him, who was granted health, wealth, and offspring in abundance, then lost it all. Similarly, Ya’qub, who lost his two most beloved sons.

b) Patience in doing what Allah has commanded: patience in establishing the prayer, patience in fasting Ramadan, especially when the days are long, patience in giving zakat, and patience in performing Hajj.

c) Patience in abstaining from all that Allah has prohibited; be it usury, gambling, flesh of swine, alcohol, and other forbidden acts.

What characteristic will you develop within yourself to attain Allah’s love?

May Allah direct us all to the blessings of the Glorious Quran and the Sunna of His Messenger (Peace be upon him).

I say this and ask Allah for forgiveness for me and you, so invoke Him for forgiveness, for He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
