As-Salaam alaikum,

Ayat 257 of Surat Baqra of the Holy Qur'an (2:257) reads:--

     "Allah is the Wali of those who believe. He brings them out from

     darkness into the Light."

Allah, may He be Exalted, says He is the Protective Friend of those who believe. Nu'uman Ali Khan explained that Allah Ta'ala did not use the word mu'minoon.. meaning 'the believers'. He said, "those who believed". Who are they?  They are the people who have entered into imaan (faith) but it has not settled in their hearts yet. He is the Protective Friend of those people.  Not the perfect ones, but the ones who struggle- those who are not there yet. And how is He a Protective Friend?

He has the constant attribute of pulling them-- pulling us, those who go up and down in their faith-- out of darkness, and bringing them into Light. Not just one time, but over and over again. Just like He forgives sins over and over. He always has our back, Gafur-Raheem.
