Beloved Group

In the Qur'an Allah informs about the class of people who loved him. They are loved by God because of faith, piety, and obedience in religious orders and a good attitude and behavior to fellow humans and other creatures.

First, people who love Allah and His Messenger. For Muslims, the most beloved is God and His Messenger (al mahabbatul ula). Love of both are loving the other benchmarks, such as wives, husbands, children, families, wealth, rank, and occupation.

Love of God motivate to run all the commands him with pleasure. Allah says,''Say, 'If you (really) love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins'. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.''(Sura 3: 31).

Second, people who do justice (muqsithin). Fair means doing an act with no menzalimi others and yourself. Fair also means carrying out the obligations under the rules and accept the right of return. Justice must be upheld in all aspects of human life, whether social, political, economic, and legal.

He said,''If they (Jews) come to you (to ask for the decision), then decide (the case) between them, or turn away from them, if you turn away from them then they will not give you the slightest harm. And if you judge them, then decide between them with justice, verily Allah loves those who are fair.''(Sura 5: 42).

Third, apply patience (shabirin). Patience is a perfect fully realized when a person is subject unconditionally to the will of God. He said,''They do not become weak because of the disaster that may befall them in Allah's way, and not lethargic and not (too) surrendered (to the enemy). Allah loves those who wait.''(Sura 3: 146).

Fourth, the people who put their trust (mutawakilin). Trust is to deliver what has been done to God. This attitude comes from the belief that what is done man, the result could not be ascertained. Allah says,''Then if you've made up my mind, so put your trust in Allah. Truly Allah loves those who put their trust in Him.''(Sura 3: 159).

Fifth, those who purify themselves (mutathohhirin). Every Muslim holy always physically trained with the purification of large and small ritual impurity when it will offer prayers. This practice was expected to provide a positive influence for himself and his environment clean. He said,''Allah loves those who repent and He loves those who purify themselves.''(Sura 2: 222).

Attitudes and behavior of this group who loved God should be emulated in life. Therefore, attitudes and behaviors that bring benefit for oneself, others and the environment.
