It’s a vital part of almost everyone’s lives and we depend on these special bonds quite often. Strong friendships require importance and value of one another and most of all, they require the remembrance of Allah SWT.
Good friends are trustworthy and the bond of friendship right after family and, if the relationship is as important as it is is made out to be, some friends are even considered family. If friendship is something so valued and cherished, then it should remind you and help you to never forget the one reason above all other reasons as to why we are here today. Good friends should remind us of Allah SWT and to worship Allah SWT.
The Prophet (SAW) said:
A man follows the religion of his friend; so each one should consider whom he makes his friend
[Sunan Abu Dawud; Graded Hasan]
Friends help to shape us into who we become, and those who we surround ourselves with and consider friends are a reflection of our personality.
