As-Salaam alaikum,

 Chosen servants of Allah Ta'ala have 4 traits with which we can easily recognize them, and these are:--

 (1) They forsake ease and comfort.

 (2) They spend from the little that is in their possession.

 (3) They are content with their lowly status.

 (4) Praise and insult are the same with to them.

 May Allah Ta'ala confer these traits on us, courtesy of His Generosity, TABARAKA WA TA'ALA.

Dhul-Qarnain and Sulaiman come to mind. Do they fit the 4 traits? Or were they not chosen servants?

Wa 'alaikas Salaam,

Jazakuma Allahu Khairan.

Just to add, The Qur'an also gives us more traits and descriptions of the 'Servants of Allah':

Qur'an [25: 63-76]

{63} وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْ�£َرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا

And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!"

{64} وَالَّذِينَ يَبِيتُونَ لِرَبِّهِمْ سُجَّدًا وَقِيَامًا

Those who spend the night in adoration of their Lord prostrate and standing;

{65} وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا اصْرِفْ عَنَّا عَذَابَ جَهَنَّمَ إِنَّ عَذَابَهَا كَانَ غَرَامًا

Those who say: "Our Lord! avert from us the Wrath of Hell, for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievous,

{66} إِنَّهَا سَاءَتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا

"Evil indeed is it as an abode, and as a place to rest in";

{67} وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا �£َنْفَقُوا لَمْ يُسْرِفُوا وَلَمْ يَقْتُرُوا وَكَانَ بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ قَوَامًا

Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes);

{68} وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَدْعُونَ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ وَلَا يَقْتُلُونَ النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا يَزْنُونَ وَمَنْ يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ يَلْقَ �£َثَامًا

Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause, nor commit fornication, and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.

{69} يُضَاعَفْ لَهُ الْعَذَابُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَيَخْلُدْ فِيهِ مُهَانًا

(But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy,

{70} إِلَّا مَنْ تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا فَ�£ُولَئِكَ يُبَدِّلُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ حَسَنَاتٍ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا

Unless he repents, believes and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful,

{71} وَمَنْ تَابَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَإِنَّهُ يَتُوبُ إِلَى اللَّهِ مَتَابًا

And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to Allah with an (acceptable) conversion,

{72} وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَشْهَدُونَ الزُّورَ وَإِذَا مَرُّوا بِاللَّغْوِ مَرُّوا كِرَامًا

Those who witness no falsehood and, if they pass by futility, they pass by it with honourable (avoidance);

{73} وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِّرُوا بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ لَمْ يَخِرُّوا عَلَيْهَا صُمًّا وَعُمْيَانًا

Those who, when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord, droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind;

{74} وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ �£َزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ �£َعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

And those who pray, "Our Lord! grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."

{75} �£ُولَئِكَ يُجْزَوْنَ الْغُرْفَةَ بِمَا صَبَرُوا وَيُلَقَّوْنَ فِيهَا تَحِيَّةً وَسَلَامًا

Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven, because of their patient constancy: therein shall they be met with salutations and peace,

{76} خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا حَسُنَتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا

Dwelling therein; how beautiful an abode and place of rest!

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

In my opinion that Dhul-Qarnain and Sulaiman were also choosen servants, even though they were granted the kingdom and wealth. They were also people who obey Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

A person who is blessed with a lot of wealth or a little of wealth are the same, because the most noble servants of Allah are those who are most taqwa to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
