On the resurrection Day, Allah shall announce: Where are those who befriend each other for my sake. I shall accommodate them under my shadow. The enviable position, enjoyed by such people on Resurrection Day, has been very Tersely depicted by our Prophet (P.B.U.H) as he says:
Among the bondsmen of Allah are those who are enviable to the Prophets and martyrs. He was questioned: Who are they O Prophet of Allah? He answered: They are those people who befriend each other for the sake of Allah, not for the sake of money or hereditary pride. They remain unscared when others are scared of, and they will not be caught by grief when others are scared of, and they will not be caught by grief when others are grieved. Then prophet (P.B.U.H) recited the following verse:
"Verily the friends of Allah shall not have any fear and shall not grieve".
While going to select a friend, you should keep in your mind the "Moral Geography" of the person with whom you have to establish the friendly relation because when you are closely associated with someone, it is quite natural that their tendencies and ideas shall encroach upon your mind. Therefore, you should be very particular in establishing your friendly relation and it should be restricted to those whose tastes, thoughts and concepts and life hustles and bustles strictly conform to the Prophet's "NICE PRECEPTS".
Allah glorifies the true friendship where He says:
"Verily the male believers and female believers are mutually friends and co-operatives to each other".
Pin your trust in your friends. Don't embarrass them and be among them cheerful not sombrous. Lay the foundation of your friendship on sincerity, love and Divine pleasure, not on the exploitation of your personal biased interests, and adopt such germane manners that your friend may feel proud of you and gleeful of your company.
