Allah loves those who do good

Qualities Allah Loves

Shukr (Gratefulness) is to realize every single thing we have in life is a blessing and a gift from the Most Generous. Shukr will lead us to peace of mind in this life because instead of finding faults in what we may have we are grateful for having anything at all. We realize everything is a gift and a blessing and thus find contentment. Allah Almighty Loves His servants and they do too. Allah says:

‘Allâh Will Bring A People Whom He Will Love And They Will Love Him.” (Al-Ma’ida: 54)
