Narrated Anas (r.a.):
Allah's Apostle (s.a.w.s.) said, "Whoever possesses the (following)three qualities will have the sweetness of faith (1): The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else; (2) Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah's Sake; (3) who hates to revert to atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the Fire."
(Bukhari & Muslim)
