7 types of people God loves - as mentioned in the Qur'an.

1) At Tawwabiin (One who turn to Allah / repent constantly)
Al Baqarah [2:222]
2) Al Muttaqiin ( One who constantly tries to be taqwa - God conscious, acts aright, wards off evil) Ali Imran [3:76]
3) Al Muhsiniin (One who constantly does good)
Ali Imran [3:134]
4) As Sobiriin (One who is always patient, firm and steadfast)
Ali Imran [3:146]
5) Al Muttawakkiliin (One who always puts their trust in God)
Ali Imran [3:159]
6) Al MuqsiTiin (One who is always just)
Al-Ma'idah [5:42]
7) Al Muttohhiriin (One who always keep themselves clean, physically and spiritually)
At-Tauba [9:108]
These are not the only ayats where God's love for a type of people is mentioned.
It can also be found in other ayats, but as a whole, it's these 7 types of people.
And of course, all of the above traits are found in the most beloved man, our Prophet S.A.W.
So, if we want to be loved by God, and to be safe, let's try our best to strictly follow the sunnah of the Prophet SAW.
Ali Imran (3:31)
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
Say: "If ye do love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
** As shared by Ustaz Hidayat in Quranication class. The list, based on an article written by Dr Muhammad Rateb An-Nablusi, which he quoted from Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawjiyyah (751H) in his books 'Madarij As Salikin' (The Understanding of the Seekers) and Raudhatul Muhibbin (Garden of the lovers).
