“And He (Allah) is the All-Forgiving, Al-Wadoud (the All-Loving)”, the word “Al-Wadoud” here means that Allah loves and honors His righteous slaves. It also means that His favors and blessings are but substantiations and manifestations of His Divine Love for them: “On those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, will (Allah) Most Gracious bestow love.” [Maryam; 19:96]
