SONNET: Nine Signs Of The Trustworthy. Who Should You Trust?

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

In a world where just a few we can trust,
While choosing one's friends, one must be cautious.
Nine traits of the trustworthy, if you must
Trust loved ones - first quality: Not jealous.

Away from envy. Happy for your joys.
Second: Keep their promises, always true.
Third: Return your favors, with a right choice.
Fourth: Loyal friends enjoy being with you.

Fifth: About others never talk badly.
Sixth: Lovers of learning, seeking wisdom.
Seventh: See your good, hope you're trustworthy.
Eighth: Wise and sincere, with good intentions.

Ninth: Forgiving, thoughtful and self-aware.
Note: If none you can trust, Allah is there.

Allah Almighty is the Only One we can truly trust.

What does it mean to trust?
To be able to trust some people is to know that on them you can rely. With ease and confidence you can talk to them about anything anytime. You know they're there for you day and night. Their promises they keep and they respect your rights. They never make fun of you when you're wrong or ridicule you when you cry. They're happy for your achievements and glad when you're right. They understand your concerns and share your delights. In fact they always want you to do well in both worlds and do only what's right. Hence they can recognize any lies you try to hide, yet they're forgiving as they're aware that no one but God Allah is Perfect. And they want you to be with them in attaining only what is best. So they try to guide you to Allah's Way with reminders and advice for you and themselves, so in Heaven with Allah's Mercy together you can rest. Allah Almighty knows best.

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds,
forgive all our sins and join us with our Muslim loved ones in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His Prophets especially His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.

Include us and all Muslims in your good du'as :)
