 As-Salaam alaykum,
   From the many human qualities Allah Ta'ala loves and mentioned them in the Holy Qur'an are:--

 (1) Those who Repent (al-Tawwabin)- These are people who "return"..."those who repent" (al-tawwabin).  The Absolver (al-Tawwab) is one of the many Names of Allah. This Attribute and/or Quality has 2 sides. The first is from the servants who repent and return to God from their disobedience, and the second is from individuals who personify themselves with the Divine Attribute of (al-Tawwab) and accept the repentance of others who transgress against them and ask for absolving. Sheikh Ibn Arabi quotes a verse from the Qur'an to articulate this point: "For Allah loves those who turn to Him in repentance." (2:222)

 (2) Those who Cleanse Themselves (al-Mutatahhirin)- Ibn Arabi observes that cleanliness is a Divine Attribute that has 2 sides of servant hood (ubudiyya), one apparent (zahir) and the other hidden (batin).
 The apparent/zahir side involves cleansing the body and living surroundings and the environment. The second side is batin/hidden and entails internal cleansing. It involves cleansing of all negative qualities such as arrogance (al-kibriyya), self-pride (al-tafakhur), self-glorification (al-khuyala) and egoism/conceit (al-ujubb)... In the Holy Qur'an Allah Ta'ala says: "He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean." (2:222)

 (3) The Patient (al-Sabirin): In describing those attributed with this quality, Sayyadi Ibn Arabi, may Allah be Merciful to him, wrote:--

     "Allah loves the patient ones, whom He afflicted (ibtalahum)
      and withheld (habasu) themselves from complaining except
     to Allah who brought down this affliction upon them.. He
     afflicted His servants so that they only seek [turn to] Him in
     lifting these afflictions and not seeking anyone else but Him.
     If they do this they are from the patient. 
     "Allah loves the patient (who are firm and steadfast)"(3:146).. 
  For further reading on this see:
