Qualities that Allah doesn`t Love


Allah The Almighty has clarified some qualities that eliminate His love to human beings. Some of these are: transgression, mischief, disbelief, oppression and wrongdoing, treachery and dishonesty, extravagance, and pride.

What is the secret behind the fact that Allah doesn`t love these qualities?

Udwaan (Transgression) is a breach of the equity of treatment and, as well known, justice is the foundation on which Islam is built and the always sought to be achieved objective. The transgressor distorts the balance of justice and truth that Allah wants through transgressing against the human beings as well as other creatures, so Allah deprives him/her from His love. Allah Says (What mean): "Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors." [Al-Baqarah/190]. 

Fsaad (Mischief) is departing from moderation-commended situation-for no valid reason. Since the universe is subjected to man and he/she has to use things in moderation, in a commended form, and for the right purpose, departing from this framework is being mischievous to the purpose for which Allah had created things in the first place, so He deprives the mischievous person from His love. He The Almighty Says (What means): "When he turns his back, His aim everywhere is to spread mischief through the earth and destroy crops and cattle. But God loveth not mischief." [Al-Baqarah/205].

As for Kufr (Disbelief), it is denying the oneness of Allah, the Prophecy of the Prophets (PBUT), or the rulings of Sharia since Allah is the one and only deity entitled to be worshipped. Denying that there is only one God is twisting the truth and forging reality, and the same goes for denying the Prophecy of the Prophets (PBUT) and the rulings of Sharia, which came to set religious and worldly affairs on the right track. This is why disbelief is one of the ugliest qualities since it twists the truth and forges reality, causing mischief to human beings, so Allah deprives the disbeliever from His love. He The Almighty Says (What means): "Say: "Obey God and His Apostle": But if they turn back, God loveth not those who reject Faith." [Al-Imran/32].

As for Zulm (Oppression and wrongdoing), it is departing from the truth although the objective of Sharia and the sending of the Messengers is making the right real and delivering justice. Therefore, deviating from the truth and justice defies the existence of religion and the sending of the Messengers, so Allah deprives the oppressor from His love. He The Almighty Says (What means): "As to those who believe and work righteousness, God will pay them (in full) their reward; but God loveth not those who do wrong." [Al-Imran/57]. 

As for Khiyaanah (Treachery and dishonesty), this could be in regards to trust, covenant, country or nation. The common denominator is that the traitor doesn`t fulfill what is required of him/her or liable for, which is causing mischief on the land and wronging people, so Allah deprives such person from His love. He The Almighty Says (What means): "Contend not on behalf of such as betray their own souls; for God loveth not one given to perfidy and crime:" [An-Nisa`/107].

Israaf (Extravagance) refers to exceeding limit as regards money, food, or speech. Allah loves justice in all matters and likes not transgression because it is injustice, which is Islam`s first enemy, so Allah deprives the extravagant person from His love. He The Almighty Says (What means): "O Children of Adam! wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink: But waste not by excess, for God loveth not the wasters." [Al-A`raf/31].

Finally, Istikbaar (Pride) is derived from the Averb Istakbara. For example, Istkbar Ar-Rajol means the man got arrogant and stubborn, rebelled and refrained from accepting truth and accepted falsehood instead. The truth is justice while falsehood is injustice. In essence, Istikbar is supporting injustice and falsehood. It also means departing from being a servant of Allah while humiliation, not pride, suits a servant better. In fact, a believer must show humiliation before Allah and the believers since pride doesn`t suit him/her at all. Most importantly, Allah doesn`t love this quality and the person who has it, and this is why he/she is deprived from Allah`s love. He The Almighty (What means): " Undoubtedly God doth know what they conceal, and what they reveal: verily He loveth not the arrogant." [An-Nahil/23].

We pray that Allah distances us from every quality that could deprive us from His love.

I am pregnant with more four twins since two months although I didn't have childbearing potential during the last four years. In addition, the doctor specialized in reprusccusions, already has notified me about the possible reprusccusions as a result of being pregnant with four twins as follows: abortion, metrorrhagia, premature birth, high blood pressure, gestational diabetes and the like. What is the ruling on aborting some of the aforementioned embryos? A medical report was attached in which the status of my question is clarified.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.
If the existence of the four embryos leads to critical reprusccusions on mother's health, pose a threat over her life or abort all of her embryos, then aborting some of them is permissible to ward off some of those risks stipulated that the ages of the embryos don't exceed four months. And Allah Knows Best.
