SHAFAQNA – Belief is the base of friendship between believers. According to the holy Quran, disputes destroy the character of the Islamic society. Ayah 71 of Surah Al-Tawbah said: Men and women believers act as friends to each other; they command good deeds and prohibit bad deeds, they perform prayers and pay Zakat, obey Allah (SWT) and the Prophet (PBUH), Allah (SWT) will be merciful on them, Allah (SWT) is powerful, wise.
Therefore believers are close to each other, interested in each others fates and help each other to stay away from bad deeds. Two acts of commanding good deeds and prohibiting bad ones are mentioned in this Ayah after the friendship between Muslims, indicating that these acts are the consequences of friendship and kindness and being interested in each others fates. As a result of kindness and helping each other then various types of blessings are sent to the Islamic society by Allah (SWT).
