The Qualities That a True Friend Must Have

What are the qualities that a friend should have – that which would make a true friend so true? A friend is one whom you like to be with while a true friend insists on being with you. A friend likes you when you have so much in common. True friends like you who for who you are. True friends make you feel as though they are at all times near, although they are very far. A true friend is one whom you can always talk to, even at night when it is late - when loved ones are asleep, a true friend is always there to hear what you have to say. Friends like to share, but a true friend always gives you – not what you want, but what you need. The feelings you hide, as well as your thoughts, and your dreams, a true friend can always read. A friend may forgive you or they may not forgive, for something wrong you’ve done to them. A true friend forgives even when you don’t ask. True friends forgive - again and again. Friends are close when you are close to them. A true friend wants your friendship to be closer. A true friend does what is best for you, and hates that you would end up with the losers. A true friend teaches you lessons to help you grow – lessons that are hard and easy. A true friend is always there - having a true friend can never make you feel lonely. Friends may sometimes make mistakes, but a true friend is always careful not to hurt you. A true friend is a guide and a teacher. A true friend knows everything you go through. The true friend I mention is our God, who kept you company before you were born. The friendship of God, if you truly keep and cherish, you will never feel forlorn. The true friend we all need is God (Allah) – the One who guides and can teach us lessons, the One who hears our calls and understands, the One always near – in every season – Allah, as a Friend, never judges us by the way we look and how we appear. Allah, as a Guide, if we ask Him for guidance, He guides us and makes our paths clear. Allah is with us – each day and each night – He is always there when all are asleep. Allah always listens when others don’t. He gives you comfort when He sees you weep. Fortunate are those who have Allah as a Friend. Friendship with God is friendship true. May Allah bless me with His Friendship and May Allah’s Friendship be shared with you too. Ameen. Miriam / Mariam Mababaya
