Assalamualaikum wbt, dear readers.
Yes, friends often share their joy and sorrow. But, what makes us a good friend to our friends?
One companion asked Rasulullah (saw), “Who can be my best friend?” Rasulullah (saw) answered, “Your best friend is a person : When you see him, he makes you remember Allah; when you listen to him, knowledge of Islam is increased; and when you see his actions, you are reminded of the life of the Hereafter.”The answer is as above. :D
Although our ukhuwah never had reached the level of perfectness, it actually meant a lot as it is now. I'm grateful that Allah has sent me the right and the wrong people in this life. Every single person I've known had taught me much about life. Alhamdulillah, thank you Allah. =')
Rasulullah (saw) taught his companions by saying, “Shall I tell you a thing by which you can obtain good in this world and the Hereafter?” Be with the assemblies of those who remember Allah (swt). Be busy in remembrance of Allah (swt) when you are alone. Be in the gatherings wherein knowledge of Islam and Qur’an is taught. Be with those whose love is for the sake of Allah (swt). Be with those whose dislike is for the sake of Allah (swt).
P/S : Lets be super cool friends! Lets remind the people around us of Allah, and also a reminder for ourselves! Masya-Allah. :D
