Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "A person will be summoned with the one whom he loves".[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].Another narration is: The Prophet (ﷺ) was asked; "What about a person who loves a people but cannot be with them?" (i.e., either he cannot attain their lofty position of righteousness or that he has not met with them in this life). He (ﷺ) replied, "A person will be in the company of those whom he loves".
