Were the Bani Israaeel the most beloved nation to Allah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it correct that Bani Israel were the most beloved/ best nation to Allah?


A: They were favoured with numerous favours in their time like ambiyaa were sent to them, approximately over a thousand for their guidance. When they rejected then as the Quraan says that they incurred the wrath and anger of Allah Ta`ala.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
