Allah is our greatest care-taker, friend and sympathizer. First he chalked out the codes to idealize our lives, than He heralded these codes to us through His messengers. These codes do not imply on personal benefit, to be achieved by Allah. But on the contrary, all the codes of laws are framed with a bid to benefit us. When one lack 24 thousand messengers did their job and appraised the mankind about what goes in their interest and what against their interest, Allah gave a last touch to this Legal package and sealed the same lest it be distorted. Our friend is Allah, the Lord of the Universes, and the friend of Allah is our Prophet, the Mercy of the world. So when the Mercy of the world, the friend of the Lord of the world, came to this world, he kept before his eyes all the rules, framed by his co-messengers and scrutinized all the distorted versions, as ventured by their followers, and chalked out a comprehensive life code, conducive to all human beings for its rich and ferocious provisions, and applied the same code to every inch of his life-path setting himself a paramount example for the mankind.
The friend of Allah, the Lord of the universes is the Mercy of the world: Hazrat Mohammed (P.B.U.H. ) S/o Abdullah. The life of our Prophet is an expression of all the affairs and phases, through which the mankind has to pass till the Day of Resurrection. So his life on the whole is his biography. The hallmark of this biography is that it guides the man simultaneously in all walks of the life, and that it has never been a monopoly for a particular nation, or particular country or particular era. His life and biography are the asset for all the universes, created by the Lord of the universes, and it is within the reach of any person in this world to improve his life in the light of our Prophet's Luminous memoirs. There is no aspect of etiquette, sociology, courtesy, justice and redemption of the promise, unseen in his life.

REDEMPTION OF PROMISE:
It is narrated by a follower that he entered in a deal with the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) in pre-Islamic period. This deal was not finalized and he was compelled to return. He promised Him (P.B.U.H.) to return back after a short time.
He forgot his promise and after a long time recollected it. When he returned , he, to his utter astonishment, found Him (P.B.U.H.) waiting for him. He (P.B.U.H.) only commented undisgruntled: You troubled me a lot: I have been waiting for you since a long time.
When Makkah was conquered by Muslims, they cordoned Taif for about (20) days. All their efforts to conquer Taif proved futile and they were compelled to lift the cordon. Sakhr was a community chief. He intervened in this matter and managed the Taif dwellers to sign a treaty. He intimated the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) about this new situation. When Taif came under the Islamic umbrella, Hazrat Mugheerah Bin Shoba (R.A.), who was a native of Taif, came to the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and told him: I seek your justice! My paternal aunt has been detained by Sakhr. She should be returned to me. The prophet (P.B.U.H.) ordered Sakhr to return her to Mugheerah (R.A.). Likewise some persons of Bani Saleem came to Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and complained that Sakhr has captured their land and streams. He (P.B.U.H.) ordered Sakhr to return their properties to them and told: When a man comes under the Umbrella of Islam, he preferably deserves his land and property.
If you cast a deep perspicacious glance on the friendship and relations, you shall conclude finally that the foundation of friendship and love is cemented by sincerity and mutual sympathy and co-operation. Please see what was our Prophet's behavior to his followers as a companion and friend?
In one outing, the followers (R.A.) wanted to prepare the food and every person took the charge of one department. Our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) offered to cut down the wood from the jungle. The followers told: Our parents be sacrificed for you, please don't take any pain. We are enough to do any thing. The Prophet appreciated their respectful feeling for him and told: Allah does not like the person who magnifies himself.
The Prophet (P.B.U.H.), stepping towards creating the solutions to the problems of labours, laid stress to pay out the wage of a labour before his sweat is dried out. Having deracinated the capitalistic mentality and system, he opened wide before the world, the door of peace, welfare and a high character.
Among the ticklish problems created by the biased mammonites much to the Chagrin of the mankind, are the black marketing and hoarding. Our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has accounted those, who hoard the food grains and other consumer's goods for their exploitation on price hike, for a heavy responsibility.
He (P.B.U.H.) said: sinners are those who hoard the food grains and other things to create a false scarcity.
He (P.B.U.H.) also said: Allah showers His mercy on those who do not adopt a rigid stand in business and in demanding for the repayment of the loans.
It is narrated by Anas (R.A.) that a person was in the presence of Prophet (P.B.U.H.). A man passed by him. He told: O Prophet of Allah! I love him! The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) asked him if he had intimated him. When he answered him in negative, the Prophet ordered him to intimate him of his love. He chased him and told: I love you for the sake of Allah. for the sake of whom you love me.
To establish the love and friendship on stable grounds and to make the relations purposeful and intact, you should take a keen interest in your friends affairs, and try your level best to solve their baffling problems,. The friendship also requires you to keep you in close touch with the family members of your friends and to regard them as your own family members.
Don't forget the equanimity and balance in the friendship. Don't display the indifference that hurts the hearts of the exaggerated form of friendship that you are unable to maintain. The moderation is a sign of success and godspeed as the Hadith reads:
"Love your friend slowly, he may turn one day your enemy. And hate your enemy slowly he may turn one day your friend."
Don't underrate your friend, you should lift him as high as possible, pursuant to the principle of well-wishing and consolation. Our Prophet says:
"The Religion is the well-wishing".
If you are well-wisher for someone, you should love for him what you love for yourself, and it goes without saying that a man does not love for him but what is good.
