Who are the Favoured Ones?

Since 2012-12-07


The ones Allah has favoured, are those on whom Allah bestowed knowledge of the truth, which they in turn have comprehended well, and the willingness to comply with it and place it above all interests. Those are the ones treading the path of security and salvation while others are on the way to destruction.

This is why Allah commanded us to say the following a few times a day:

{Guide us to and on the straight path; the path of those you have favoured, neither the path of those who have brought wrath upon themselves, nor that of those who went astray} [Al-Faatiha, 1:6-7].
