POEM: Choose Your Friends Wisely

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Stay friendly in general, with manners blessed,
Trustworthy at all times, ready to assist,
Forgiving, willing to let needless fights rest,
Useful and helping Muslims in various tests.
To be someone's friend is to give them your love,
To be their support in their good times or tough,
To benefit each other while them you trust,
Of the advice they share you can't get enough.
True friends want to see you do well in both worlds.
When you're wrong, they're not scared to correct nor scold.
As you spend more time with them, lessons unfold.
You find yourself improving through knowledge told.
Shun those who don't welcome reminders from you,
Evil friends who don't care about what they do,
Bad pretenders who make you doubt if they're true,
And flaky fakes not caring what you through.
It's not about those making you laugh or smile.
It's Islam and sincerity which God likes.
Righteousness, faith and trust make friendship worthwhile.
Real friends stand by your side towards Paradise.

Allah the Almighty knows best.

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our wrongdoings, answer our du'as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka 'Afuwwun Kareemun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annaa. Ameen.
