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.
