Who is most loved by God? (Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindous, etc.)

Whom do we think God loves most, we who believe in Him?

May be the followers of every religion would think that they are the ones. God loves them most! Jews are the chosen people, God’s children, so He loves them most. Christians, who believe in the Christ, deserve to be saved and loved by the Lord. Or Muslims who worship the one God who begets not and has not been begotten. Which group is the most loved by God? Supposing that every group even thinks that the others are OK, let alone are loved by Him.

I, as a Muslim who believe that the message of Islam is misunderstood, misrepresented, misquoted and attacked both by stupid or superficial Muslims as well as islamophobists, as such, I firmly and unshakingly believe that God loves none of the previous groups, just for belonging to any one of them.

I learn from and believe Prophet Muahammad, and here is his answer to this question:

GOD LOVES MOST… THOSE WHO ARE MOST USEFUL TO PEOPLE.

Now here is a new group. This is THE religious leader of Islam saying that those whom God, Allah loves most are simply those who are most useful to their fellow humans. Note that he didn’t even say: those who are most useful to Muslims. Just to people. He didn’t even specify what type of usefulness. That’s why a Muslim should believes that he is rewarded by God for any benefit that he brings to people. Islam considers work as an act of worship, and work useful to others goes higher, to the Love of God. This is a very well-known saying of the Prophet among Muslims as well. It’s not Muhammad’s fault then when Bin Laden has a different opinion! Muhammad delivered the message then he passed away. He can’t come back to life to correct everyone’s illusions. This is our own mission now!

This saying is not an isolated event in the Islamic understanding:

 According to the Quran, 49:13

“Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).”

Here it is stated that God doesn’t give preference for anyone except for how righteous and mindful of Him they are. No names here, no labels (Islam, Muslims). Just values.

In another passage, the Quran refutes the idea that Jews and/or Christians have any special place just for being so:

Quran 5:18

(Both) the Jews and the Christians say: ‘We are the sons of God, and his beloved.’ Say: ‘Why then would He punish you for your sins? No! You are but humans among all those he has created”.

I like that! We’re all just humans, like all other humans He has created. He judges us not based on what religion we were born following or we say we follow. He judges us according to how righteous we are. Labels don’t matter to Him. Here comes to my mind another saying of the Prophet: “God does not look at your images and your bodies, He looks at your hearts.” Beautiful!

Yet another meaning the Prophet mentioned, where he particularly talks to Arabs, warning them from the silliness of ever thinking that because the Quran was revealed in Arabic, they as Arabs would have any advantage in the sight of God: “All people are as equal as the teeth of a comb, there is no virtue (nothing better or superior) to an Arab over a non-Arab nor white over colored except by the fear and mindfulness of God”. However we ended up seeing many Arabs try really hard to Arabize Islam! To confuse and mix their own traditions (at times stupid, dangerous, and unhuman) with the teachings of Islam.

To finish this post, I’d like to mention a very important verse from the Quran, 2:62

“Those who believe, and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Day of Judgment, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

I haven’t seen anything like that in any other scripture. Here the Quran even names those “others”, and establishes one simple criterion for all: believing in God and Judgement Day and doing good deeds, resulting in them being rewarded and having no fear. The same meaning is repeated in other verses as well. I for one didn’t find any other religion that has this same message as clearly, and that’s why I chose to be Muslim!

I hope we Muslims can always remember that true faith consists in serving God’s creation, people, no matter where they are or what they believe. Muslims strive to follow the example of their Prophet. He told them the surest way to God’s love!
