21 People Allah Loves- Shaikh Faisal

The 21 People Allah Loves
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal


The people want shaykhs to pass fatwas to change Islam for them - so they can satisfy their evil desires
“and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (2:216)

As a sincere Muslim, you must love what ALLAH loves and hate what ALLAH hates (al wala wal bara)
"Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a Khalil (an intimate friend)! (25:28)

1. MUHSININ (those who do good, are kind-hearted and charitable)
2. THAWWAABEEN (those who turn to him in sincere repentance)
  1. Stop the act
  2. Feel remorse that you did the act
  3. Go to the person you harmed with the act and beg that person to forgive you; if that person does not forgive you, Allah will not forgive you; the only currency that Allah will accept on the day of judgment is your pious deeds!
  4. Pray 2 rakat and beg Allah (swt) to forgive you; best time to make it is the last 3rd of the night, to cry to ALLAH shows sincerity
  5. Need to make the tauba before the sun rises from the west instead of the east because when the sun rises from the west, tauba will no longer be accepted; even the shahadah will not be accepted when the sun rises from the west

And when the Word (of torment) is fulfilled against them, We shall bring out from the earth a beast for them, to speak to them because mankind believed not with certainty in Our Ayat (27:82)

3. MUTATAHIREEN (those who keep clean)
hygiene is very important is ISLAM--> brush your teeth, shower, do istinja, Do ghusl when menstruation stops/ Circumcision
Rasul(saw) said: “Had it not been for the burden that it may have caused for my followers, I would have directed them to brush their teeth before every prayer.” [Muslim]

4. MUTAQEEN (the pious)
Taqwa is to place between your self and the wrath of ALLAH a barrier by doing what is fard and by abstaining from what is haraam

5. THOSE WHO ARE JUST, those who don’t oppress
Verily, Allah loves those who act justly (5:42)

6. THE SABIREEN (the patient)
And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the edge (i.e. in doubt): if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (22:11)
--> Have Patience with Qadr, with doing the fard and with abstaining from the haram

7. MUTTATAWAKULEEN (those who put their trust in Allah)
Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). 3:159
The prophet said 'tie your camel first then put your trust in ALLAH'

8. THOSE WHO LOVE HIM (ALLAH swt) [Allah loves those who love Him]
They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. 9:67

9. THOSE WHO ARE HUMBLE towards the believers and stern and harsh towards the kuffar
Humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. 5:54

10. MUJAHIDEEN (those who fight the kuffar and don’t fear the fear of any blamers
Fight the kuffar for the sake of Allah (swt) and they don’t fear the blame of the blamers)
O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All Sufficient for His creatures needs, AllKnower. (5:54)

Say (O Muhammad to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (3:31)

Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (9:47)

13. A just ruler
Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salat. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salat (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakat and they enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islam has forbidden) [i.e. they make the Qur'an as the law of their country in all the spheres of life]. And with Allah rests the end of (all) matters (of creatures). (22:41)

14. A youth who grew up in Islam and didn’t slip into jahiliyah; A man in which a beautiful women called him to zina and he said, "no, I fear Allah"
15. A man in which a beautiful women called him to zina and he said, "no, i fear Allah"

And whosoever turns away (blinds himself) from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. this Qur'an and worship of Allah), We appoint for him Shaitan (Satan - devil) to be a Qarin (an intimate companion) to him. (43:36)

18. A person when they give sadaqa with their right hand, they hide it so the left hand doesn’t know anything about it

19. Two people who love each other, for the sake of Allah
You (O Muhammad ) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful. (58:22)

20. An old Muslim
21. A sincere scholar of the deen
