What are the benefits of having good friends?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ridha/Reza (AS) who said: A person, who has ignorant friend (s), is always in distress and inconvenience [1]. Ibn Miskawayh, the great Islamic scholar and the teacher of Abu Ali Seena/Avicenna said: The whole of the human being’s prosperity can be found with others and friends. Prosperous is the one who finds true friends for himself/herself, and does everything in his/her power to learn from their moral virtues as well as they benefit from his/her moral virtues [2].
