In The Name Of ALLAH, The Beneficent, The Merciful 

Men of God of the past(Noah, Moses, Aaron, Daniel, Jesus, Prophet Muhammad) were not hated merely because they taught prayer, fasting, charity, loving your neighbor, honor your parents.

They were hated, despised, rejected and some murdered because they challenged corrupt governments/society and spoke of the downfall of oppressors. Those Prophets of God were all charged with what we call in modern times "SEDITIOUS" which means, "inciting or causing people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch."

Therefore, in identifying "Men of God" in modern times there are a few characteristics we must look for.

#1 They were not friends of the government/society, because what they teach condemns the kings/rulers who usually are living big on the backs of the little people. They were considered public enemy #1. They taught, "thus sayeth the Lord".

#2 They challenged erroneous concepts of God, religious concepts and fought against religious hypocrites. They were condemned as "blasphemous" by the religious order of the day just as they were condemned as "treasonous" by the government of the day.

#3 They primarily worked with the poor, left outs, the ones society forgets. They were loved by the poor and hated by the rich.

#4 They were not "educated" or "trained" by conventional standards, but they were able to outshine the best minds of their times.

#5 They were considered "Crazy", "Mad", "Deluded", "Insane".

#6 They taught their followers to separate themselves from wicked people and the society in general that practices wickedness.

#7 They preached the judgment of God/fall of their kingdom as consequence for the government's rejection of them and their message. 

Praying, fasting, charity, going to religious houses of worship is good, but that is not all there is to being the people of God or a Man/Woman of God... you are going to have to be hated on(by the world), because God's way is not the world's way.

"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake!" (Matthew 10:22)
