We are highly influenced by the company we keep and the friends we share our life with. Companionship is very important as no human being can survive alone. To meet our social and recognition needs, we need friends and acquaintances with whom we can share our laughter and also our burden. But, how many of us have thought if we have the right kind of friends? We generally pay very less attention to this thought as we settle for anyone with whom our thoughts agree. But, we need to dig deeper into this thought because good friends are like a sweet potion that sweetens our life here and also in the Hereafter. But the bad friends cause unjust influence on our lifestyle and even on our character. This can ruin our Aakhirah and disturb our peace of mind.
What are the right kind of friends?
So, who are those right kind of friends and how we identify them is a big question for all of us. We as Muslims are created with a determined purpose to follow our Deen and be better servants to Allah by following what He commands. So, the right kind of people for us are the ones who bring us closer to Allah. The right ones are those who show us the path towards true light of Islam. They are the permanent ones that you need for ever in your life.
Why do you need right people?
We are so busy in running and chasing money and success that we hardly pay attention to the people we interact and the power we give to them in our lives. If we surround ourselves with the right friends who follow the Islamic way of living, then we bring a whole new aura of positivity in our lives. Restricting oneself from bad people and bad environment helps us to invest our energy into better things and the right path. So, it is important that the next time you make new friends make sure that they help you to be better Muslims and better examples.
