Why was Ben Adhem’s name not in the angel’s book in Leigh Hunt’s poem “Abou Ben Adhem”?

The angel was making a list of those who loved God. But Abou Ben Adhem was not a man popularly known for the love of God, but for his love for the fellow human beings. That is why his name did not feature in the angel’s book of gold.
