Who is a Wali (friend)?. By: Mohamed Riswan.

A. A Wali is a true believer, who fears and loves Allah very much. Allah says:

“No doubt! Verily, the ‘Auliya’ of Allah [i.e. those who believe in the Oneness of Allah and fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve, – those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and used to fear Allah much by abstaining from evil deeds and sins and by doing righteous deeds.” [Noble Qur’an 10:62,63]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“My only Wali are Allah and the most pious among the true believers.” [Bukhari and Muslim]
