POEM: The True Friend, The Enemy, The Frenemy And Solitude

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Three kinds of relations form after knowing someone:
You either make a 'friend' who becomes a frenemy,
Or a foe who hates you honestly and outwardly,
Or a true friend who shares your goals, likes and qualities.

The frenemies: known for being genuinely fake -
Are those who spend time with you with a hidden motive -
They're mostly made of lies. They give off negative vibes.
For your welfare, for Allah's sake they're best avoided.

The enemies: these haters loathe you for who you are -
For doing the good deeds you do, for enjoining right,
For your faith and gains, as they resent you day and night.
With Allah's Will, their wrongs will meet them at the best time.

The true friends: their numbers are few, for they are unique -
They love you for Allah and insist you be with them.
Their discussions are on Islam and self-improvement.
You always help each other find God's Way to Heaven.

If real friends are hard to find, remember, "There's Allah."
Embrace solitude and know, "Allah always hears you."
No praising the unworthy nor playing with untruth.
True friendship is with Allah, Who's always been with you.

Some of my beloved Mom's Islamic books published at Dar-us-salaam:

Allah the Almighty knows best. It was narrated that
the Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:
"Souls are like conscripted soldiers;
those whom they recognize, they get along with,
and those whom they do not recognize, they will not get along with.
[Sahih Bukhari]

Include all Muslims in your good du'as :)

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds and our fasting, May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins, and May Allah the Almighty join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His noble Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
