In the name of Allah the beneficent, the Merciful
A few days back I fell into a situation when I was feeling a secret of mine too heavy to keep it in my heart and also I failed to share that secret with anyone ,as I knew that no one in the world will understand me on that part .So, I started wondering ,what a true friend really means .
I finally came to the conclusion. A true friend is the one who has the following qualities:
1) First quality that a best friend should have is that you feel no hesitation or you don't feel reluctant in sharing your secrets with him. Whenever u feel your secret too heavy to keep it in your heart you simply go to that friend and speak your heart out in front of him ,without having the fear that he will disclose it in front of other people.....
2) I would say that a true friend, in fact, is the one who stands with u forever and for always no matter what circumstances you are in .always there to help u in the time of troubles ... and even at times when you are happy. (Not only when you are in need as it said commonly A friend in need is a friend indeed)
3) He who gives you lot of love . Love which has something special attached to it.
4) The one who become your strength when you are weak.
5) Whenever he sees some good quality of yours, he tries to enhance it, and whenever sees some bad quality, he'll definitely try to hide it from others and will tell advise you in a polite and frank manner.
6) The one who believes in you always and u never lie to him and the one who knows what is in your heart ...
7) The one who never lets you fall in trouble because of him ...
8) And most of all he listens to you patiently and never gets angry at you and whenever u say sorry to him forgives you in the blink of an eye.
These were the qualities that I would like to have in a friend.
Then I suddenly started thinking that where would we find such a friend; such a true friend.
1) Then I thought who is the one in this whole world that i feel no hesitation in sharing my secrets with ... EVERY secret ...who do u think u can share with .....
I FOUND THE ONE DAT I CAN SHARE ALL THE SECRETS WITH ... AND TH IS ~ALLAH~ ...
2) Then coming to the second quality He who helps you in all cases
I AGAIN FOUND IT TO BE ALLAH ALMIGHTY
3) Then the third (One that give you unshared love ... the kind of Love that is more than any other Love in this whole wide world)
IT WAS DEFINITELY ALLAH AGAIN AS WE ALL KNOW ALLAH LOVES US MORE THAN OUR MOTHERS
4) Then the 4th one ( The one who become your strength when u r weak ...)
OFCOURSE DAT WAS ALLAH AGAIN WHO IS OUR STRENGTH ..... WHENEVER WE ARE WORRIED WE SHOW OUR HOPE TOWARDS ALLAH'S HELP
5) Then the 5th (Whenever he sees some good quality of yours, he try to enhance it ….)
DEFINITELY ALLAH ALMIGHTY IS THE ONE DAT HIDES OUR BAD QUALITIES N ENHANCES THE GOOD ONES
6) Then the 6th (The one who believes in you always and u never lie to him ... and the one who knows what's in your heart ...)
ALLAH BELIEVES IN US ANYWAY BECAUSE WE NEVER LIE TO HIM ,BECAUSE HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT LIES IN OUR HEART AND HE KNOWS THE UNSPOKEN ...
7) Then the 7th (The one who never lets you fall in trouble because of him ...)
ALLAH HAS THE QUALITY OF TAKING HIS BEINGS OUT OF TROUBLE NOT IN TO TROUBLES SO AGAIN IT IS ALLAH
8) Then the last point (And most of all he listens to you patiently and never gets angry at uou ... and whenever you say sorry to him ... forgives u in the blink of an eye ...)
ALLAH LISTENS TO US ANYWAY AND FORGIVE US WHEN EVER WE ASK HIM TOO .AND THE ONLY ONE TO WHOM SAYING SORRY IS THE EASIEST THING...
Tell me what do u think about a true friend . IS IT ALLAH THATS UR TRUE FRIEND OR SOMEONE ELSE?
OFCOURSE I KNOW IT THAT IT IS ALLAH WHO IS UR BEST FRIEND TOO ....WHO EVERYONE'S BEST FRIEND IS SO WHY NOT START SHARING OUR SECRETS WITY ALLAH AND WE WILL START LOVING HIM AND START CONSIDERING HIM OUR BEST FRIEND.... AND OFCOURSE WE WOULD NEVER LIKE TO DO SOMETHING THAT HURT OUR FRIEND ...
AND OFCOURSE THE REWARD IS HELD WITH OUR BEST FRIEND...
AND WHAT REWARD CAN BE MORE THAN HIS LOVE…
THINK ABOUT IT ......
