SONNET: It's Alright If Allah Is Your Only Friend

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Funny how the jealous lie that I'm lone,
So ignorant are they for lies they squeak,
Don't they know that 'with Allah none's alone.'?
Or is my attention that which they seek?

I'd rather be with God than with His foes,
Be Allah's friend than befriend those He hates,
Feel "lonely" than be with fools who don't know
Their lousiness and fakeness they display.

I'd rather spend time with Allah alone
Than waste a minute on the unworthy,
Who have no noble qualities to own
But sadly envy while being nosy.

Avoid those who'll get you into trouble.
Side with Allah and His allies truthful.

Mariam M. <3 Nomayri AbdulWahab

With genuine friends whom Allah loves: Gift them with your time, love, trust, tips and loyalty. Grant them your support. Share with them your joys which make you happy. Sincerely pray for them in your du'as regularly. 

With fakes: Obvious avoidance or similar fakery. 
With bullies and jealous folks who show enmity
1] Guide them through reminders or transform them positively by your good manners. 2] Show no interest. 3] Fair and reasonable superiority.  

Every Muslim has a right to choose who to be close friends with and who to avoid. A lot can be known about you by the company you keep. While it's a good thing to be friendly in general, it's always important to reserve your trust, loyalty and secrets for those who are likewise loyal to Allah Almighty. Thus, select righteous friends who can help guide you to Allah's Way with them instead of being misguided by a bunch of sinners or hypocrites who lose when they don't want to befriend you and who only gain your sins each time they talk badly about you.

Note that even if a Muslim stays anonymous in this world or doesn't have the same millions of fans as some celebrities do, that Muslim, through his/her good deeds and sincerity, may be well-known in the Heavens and loved by God Allah as well as His Angels. May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our mistakes and join us with His friends whom He loves in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
