In our contemporary civilization, friends are made at school, at work, in neighbourhoods. Friends are made and kept for many reasons. People make friends with others who share general interests, hobbies, and even vices. The final objective of a friendship is often just company, a wish to spend time with someone, doing somewhat that they both enjoy. A Muslim has to choose friends more critically and carefully.
Definitely, Muslims, like everyone else, desire friends who share interests and who are pleasurable to be with. But, that is not only what a really Islamic friendship is all about. In reality, an Islamic friendship is not that easy at all. In Islam, true friendships are bound by sisterhood and brotherhood bonds that are stronger than usual friendships. They are bonds that exist for a much higher motive and with a greater objective.
Muslims make friends knowing that the relationship they will result is a significant bond between two people who share shared goals. Their friendship is one that exists above all for the sake of ALLAH Almighty. The camaraderie and love that is born from such a friendship is a secondary advantage, for sure.
True love for the sake of ALLAH Almighty
Love for others comes in different types. Love between a husband and wife is one kind of these forms, all friendship is another type. Though, all forms of liking that any one person can have for other person, for the reason of this article, will be referred to as love.Sensibly, pure love of another person only for the sake of ALLAH Almighty is difficult. Few people can achieve such a friendship, which is why ALLAH Almighty rewards such an act of belief generously.
Nevertheless, many of us, in an effort to reach this high level of belief, should try to make and build strong friendships that advantage us and our Ummah (Nation). In Islam correct friendship is brotherhood or sisterhood- a bond that is enduring and strong. In this bond, men and women can find the sweetness of belief.
The rewards of loving another for the sake of ALLAH Almighty are consistent with its significance. Its impact is not singular- it affects the whole society. For whole society to exist in peace and harmony, its constituents should be at peace. If we could each desire for our friends what we wish for ourselves, the world would become a better place. This is what Religion Islam ensures. If there is unity and brotherhood among the people, the whole society at large will be united.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), tried to eliminate hatred, rivalry and jealousy by inducing brotherhood, a sincere friendship and love. The Islamic community is ideally built upon the foundation of brotherhood.
