All Praise is due to Allah, The Most Beneficiant The Most Merciful, may the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Al'Sayyidi Muhammad Mustafaa Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam, his family, and companions.

"And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends one of another; they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and they establish worship and they pay the poor-due, and they obey Allah and His messenger. As for these, Allah will have mercy on them. Lo! Allah is Mighty, Wise."
~Surah Tawbah, Ayah Seventy-Two


"Meet people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they yearn for your company."
~Ali ibn Abi Talib RadhiAllahuanhu

Duaas are always requested...

Bismillahir'rahman'nir-rahim.

Allahumma sali'ala sayyiddina Muhammadin wa 'ala alay sayyiddina Muhammadin wa barik wa salim.

"And keep yourself (O Muhammad Sal'Allahualaihiwasalam) patiently with those who call on their Lord (i.e. your companions who remember their Lord with glorification, praising in prayers, etc., and other righteous deeds, etc.) morning and afternoon, seeking His Face, and let not your eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp and glitter of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our Remembrance, one who follows his own lusts and whose affair (deeds) has been lost."

~Surah Kahf, Ayah Twenty-Eight


The Prophet Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam has given similar advice in choosing companions and forming friendships.
He Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam was asked,
"What person can be the best friend?"

"He who helps you remember God, and he who reminds you when you forget Him," he replied.

Then the Prophet Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam was asked, "And which friend is the worst?"

"He who does not help you when you remember God and does not remind you of God when you forget," he replied.

The Prophet Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam was further asked,
"Who is the best among people?"


He Sal'Allahualayhiwasalam replied, "He who when you look at him, you remember God" (because of his noble character, devotion to God, and concern for others).


Allahumma sali'ala sayyiddina Muhammadin wa 'ala alay sayyiddina Muhammadin wa barik wa salim. Rawdhina billahi Rabba wa bil'islaami deena wa bi'Muhammadin nabiyaa, wa akhirud'duana anil'hamdulillahi rabbil'alameen. Walaykumasalam wa rahmatullah
