THE DAILY ISLAMIC REMINDERS. Yaum Ath-thalaatha, 6th day of Rajab, 1440, (Tuesday, 12th March, 2019). *_WHO ARE YOUR FRIENDS?_*. Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Truly this is one of the most dangerous and most critical aspects about one’s guidance and steadfastness on the straight path, yet many people are heedless of it and/or underestimate it.
The degree to which Islam places emphasis on one’s companions and their impact on one’s life here and in the eternal hereafter is quite remarkable.
We read in the Qur’an Allah saying:
“Close friends, that Day, will be enemies to each other, except for the righteous (to whom Allah will say), “O My servants, no fear will there be concerning you this Day, nor will you grieve, [You] who believed in Our verses and were Muslims. Enter Paradise, you and your kinds, delighted.”
Circulated among them will be plates and vessels of gold. And therein is whatever the souls desire and [what] delights the eyes, and you will abide therein eternally.
And that is Paradise which you are made to inherit for what you used to do.” (Qur’an 43:67- 73). Allahu Akbar.
So close friends could be enemies on the Day of Judgement. Why? Because instead of reminding one another of ALLAH and the Hereafter and supporting each other on the right path, they were doing the opposite. Deluding one another and dragging one another further away from the path. Unfortunately today a good friend means he or she will allow you to commit zina using his room or helping you to commit sins. Whatever we do in life, let’s always remember that, we will die soon and be accountable to ALLAH as such let’s not be fooled into any acts of disobedience to ALLAH. The worse regret is when you die disobeying ALLAH astaqfirulLah. Let’s fear death and repent to ALLAH today before it’s too late.
*_May ALLAH (Al-Haadii, the Protector) keep guiding us and protect us from deviation_*. Aameen.
