“Your best friend is the one who: seeing him reminds you of Allah, speaking to him increases your knowledge, and his actions remind you of the hereafter.” (Al-Muhasibi)
If we can be best friends in this life, then why can’t we be best friends in Jennah too?!!
Always keep in mind that friendship is not only a social construct but a religiously significant relationship. And remember, Islam asks us to keep friends that bring us closer to Allah, and to make sure we treat them well.
But equally just as important is to try BEING a friend who reminds others of Allah SWT. Yes even when its not cool to do so. Just think of all the heaping rewards you’d get for the good you encourage, and for each person who follows your example too! .
We admit and know that this life is hard, and with the increase of distractions that keep pulling us away from the remembrance of Allah SWT - it’s getting harder with each passing day. .
But that doesn’t mean we can’t win! Allah SWT Knows were going to make mistakes along the way. He swt never intended to make us perfect! Remember that! But we should try our sincere level best to avoid doing things that would incur the displeasure of Allah SWT. .
Allah SWT is Al Ghafour - The All Forgiving, Al Afou - The Eraser Of our sins, Al Rahman - The Merciful who Loves to shower us all with His Mercy alhamdulilah. And so, as long as we turn to Him with sincerity seeking His Forgiveness and repent, we should never lose hope in always striving to get better n better iA. .
But that Journey towards Him, can be so much better with friends & family who are happy to remind each other of ways that they can all be together in Jennah In shaa Allah too! It’s not hard to find them... bcuz it begins with you! .
Be the first to suggest it. Be the first to encourage it. And if it’s not received well the first couple of times - don’t give up, keep trying. Be the one that says I’ll drag you into Jennah if I have to gurl! And eventually may you win their hearts iA! .
May Allah SWT bless us all with good company whom are amongst those who He Loves! May He make us all one of them! And may He reunite us all (continued in comments)
