There are 2 types of spiritual hope.

1) Forgiveness of sins.

2) Acceptance of good deeds.

Both of these are unique to Allah (swt) only.

"And who forgives the sins except Allah." (Aali-'Imraan, 3:135)

"Those who believe and those who emigrate and strive hard in the cause of Allah, it is these who hope for Allah’s mercy; And Allah is Most Forgiving Merciful." (Al-Baqarah, 2:218)

"And slacken not in seeking these people. If you suffer, they too suffer even as you suffer. But you hope from Allah what they hope not. And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise." (An-Nisaa, 4:104)

"He said, 'None despairs of his Lord’s mercy, except those who are astray?" (Al-Hijr:56)

"The greatest of all major sins are shirk, feeling safe from the plotting of Allah, giving up hope in Allah's Mercy, and feeling despair from the help of Allah." (Ibn Mas'ood)

"Let none of you die unless he has good expectations from Allah." (Muslim)
