Ramadan 2020 is over.
I have to say it has been a good month for me, alhamdulillah. Probably because I had a really good Islamic community this Ramadan around me.
Good friends are always the most important ingredient to success.
Success at work. Success in private life. Success in religious matters. Having good people around you, who are positive, encouraging, understanding, supporting, and intelligent is the first step to having a happy life.
As our Prophet (ﷺ) said: “A man follows the religion of his friend; so each one should consider whom he makes his friend.” (Abi Dawud 4833).
If the people you talk to everyday are negative and lazy, you will eventually become negative and lazy too.
If your close friends are positive and smart, you will become exactly like them over time.
We have to pay more attention to who we are spending time with.
