Al-Tirmidhi narrated: Allah’s Messenger ( صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: “The best loved by me and the nearest to me on the seats on the Day of Resurrection are those who have the best manners and conduct amongst you, who are intimate, are on good terms with others and are humble, and the most hated by me and who will be on the furthest seats from me are those who are talkative and arrogant.”

Love of Allah is the basis of worship that should be directed to Him alone. Any other love should be for his sake too. The real love of Allah is to do whatever He ordained and to abandon whatever He forbade, in addition to Following Rasulullah (
 صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ)’s Sunnah. Whoever obeys someone or something other than Allah and His Messenger ( صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ), or follows any saying other than theirs, or fears other than Allah or seeks the pleasure of other than Allah, or puts his trust in other than Him, does not love Allah, nor does he love His Messenger ( صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ). Muslims should also love one another and wish the best for one another. Allah’s Messenger ( صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: “One will not be a true believer unless he loves for his brother what be loves for himself.” (Bukhari)

Boundaries Set by Allāh


التَّائِبُونَ الْعَابِدُونَ الْحَامِدُونَ السَّائِحُونَ الرَّاكِعُونَ السَّاجِدُونَ الْآمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَالْحَافِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ


(Triumphant) are those who turn repentant (to Allāh), those who serve (Him), those who praise (Him), those who fast, those who bow down, those who fall prostrate (in worship), those who enjoin the right and who forbid the wrong and those who keep (within) the boundaries (set by) Allāh—And give glad tidings to believers! (At-Tawbah 9:112)


These are the qualities of the true believers who were being contrasted with the hypocrites in this sūrah. Each of these qualities demands serious introspection so we can see where we stand.

“Keeping within the  boundaries” requires a word of explanation. Our  life is a complex web of relations and interactions involving ourselves, the world around us, and our Creator. We are subject to conflicting demands and emotions regarding all of them. To achieve a perfect balance in this complex situation is a lifelong struggle. The key to success in this struggle is being fully cognizant of the boundaries set by Allāh. For example, our spouses have rights on us, as do our parents. They may sometimes also come into conflict. Earning a ḥalāl living is a sacred duty. It can at times also interfere with our other obligations. Serving humanity is a noble act. What if it causes one to neglect his duties toward Allāh? In all these cases the fair resolution of the conflict requires that we not exceed the limits set by Allāh in each relationship. Learning the limits, and learning to stick by them in real life, is itself a lifelong effort. We should know where the lines are drawn in each situation and make our best effort not to cross them. But only those can have some hope of succeeding in this effort who are aware of the task itself.
