The poem Abou Ben Adhem by Abou Ben Adhem Summary by James Henry Leigh Hunt is about the qualities of the men whom God loves. The poet by narrating this Arabian Folklore gives the message that to become a good human and be in among those whom God loves, one must love mankind.
He should love human beings because they are the creations of God and loving God’s creations is like loving God Himself. Abou Ben Adhem’s name appears in the list of people whom God loves by frankly telling the angel that he wants his name in the list of those who love other humans.
