There is no doubt that Allah loves those who turn to Him in repentance after sinning. However:
Abu Hurairah reported that Allah (SWT)'s Messenger (ﷺ) once said:
"When Allah is angry with any servant, He calls Gabriel and says: I am angry with such and such and you also become angry with him, and then Gabriel also becomes angry and then makes an announcement amongst the inhabitants of heaven: Verily, Allah is angry with so and so, so you also become angry with him, and thus they also become angry with him. Then he becomes the object of wrath on the earth also."
Indeed, we all commit sins that we’re not proud of. Nevertheless, the way to Jannah is never too obstructed once you realize your flaws, do Istighfar, and leave the unhealthy path of destruction that may include practicing habits severely disliked by the Almighty Allah.
That said, here are six deeds you should never act upon, as depicted in the Qur’an, if you want to list yourself among those truly loved by the One who’s the Sustainer of all:
"And as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, He will give them in full their rewards and grant them extra from His bounty. But as for those who disdained and were arrogant, He will punish them with a painful punishment, and they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or helper." - (Surah An-Nisa: 173)
"And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers. But as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, He will give them in full their rewards, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers." - (Surah Al-Imran: 56-57)
"O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess." - (Surah Al-A’raf: 31)
4- Treachery / Betrayal
"O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence]." - (Surah Al-Anfal: 27)
"If you [have reason to] fear from a people betrayal, throw [their treaty] back to them, [putting you] on equal terms. Indeed, Allah does not like traitors." - (Surah Al-Anfal: 58)
5- Obscene Acts
"Indeed, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and forbids immorality and bad conduct and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded." - (Surah An-Nahl: 90)
"Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray." - (Surah An-Nisa: 116)
Self-esteem is concerned with WHO is right. Contrarily, humility is concerned with WHAT is right. That’s why it is vital, in the light of Islam, to stay humble and earn the love of Allah (SWT). May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala bless us with all the goodness of this world and the hereafter.
