Allah Subhanawataala addresses mankind in the Quran and commands Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,to call them to the path of One God.

In the continuous review of the Quran so far I have noted that the following types of mankind have been described:

Muttaqoon: Those that fear, love, obey and worship only Allah, and He has a special place for them in peace, love and sakina for ever.(Surah Zumar)

As Sabiqoon:
i)    Those who were the pioneers in accepting Islam when it was a great risk to do so.
ii)    They are also those (in current times and will be till the Day of Judgment) who continuously look for an opportunity to obey Allah and do it immediately without making excuses. (Surah Tawbah 9: 100)

Awaloon: the pioneers (same as As Sabiqoon)

Mohsineen are Muslims who go over and beyond the basics required for being a practicing Islam, and do it with Ikhlaas and Ehsaan.

Momineen: Muslims who have perfected their worship of One God.

Muslimeen: are generic people who accepted Islam as their way of life

Maghdoob e Alayhim: Those who know that Allah is One and are aware of His commands but are deliberately disobedient to Allah and earn His wrath.

Walad Da’aleen: Those who started out in the Deen of Allah believing in One God, but who have gone astray.

Munafiqeen: Hypocrites are those whose intent and actions do not match, i.e. they say one thing and do another (This is the absolute worst category to be in and has the worst outcome)
