What is Ishaan?
What is Taqwa?
What is sabr?

God loves these qualities

We often hear that reciting some prayers or verses of Quran brings you near
to God or brings some special blessings or God loves such people who
perform these rituals. Have you wondered what is the position of the Quran on
this subject?

In the Quran, God has expressed love and support for only those people who
display certain human qualities and not for those who only perform rituals. It
is an amazing fact while a large number of Muslims put enormous importance
and emphasis on rituals and recitals.

God Loves and supports those who are:

  1. Muhseneen         -   Those who do good
  2. Muttaqeen            -   Righteous          
  3. Sabereen              -  Those who are firm and steadfast/patient
  4. Muqseteen           -  Those who judge in equity  
  5. Mutehereen         -   Those who keep themselves clean    
  6. Mutawakaleen    -   Those who put their trust in God    
  7. Tawabeen            -   Those who turn to God constantly         
  8. Yuqateloona        -    Those who fight in God’s cause in battle array       
  9. Mumenoon          -    Believers
