SHAFAQNA – There are a few cases which will lead to a person becoming the friend of God. If you become God’s friend, then you will have respect in the world’s system and the structure of the creation. The first case is having (a firm) belief, as it is mentioned in Ayah 257 of Surah Al-Baqarah: “Allah (SWT) is the protector of those who believe”; and in Ayah 38 of Surah Al-Hajj, which says: “Verily, Allah (SWT) will defend all those who believe”; the various parts of the world will not be awkward towards you. The second case is (doing) good deeds and piety; as is mentioned in Ayah 196 of Surah Al-A’araaf: “And God will choose and befriend the righteous”; so, when you become righteous, God’s guardianship will be on you. Regarding such a person, Allah (SWT) said: I will be in charge of his/her affairs; meaning, the will of God, will replace his/her will, and God will determine his/her affairs and interests. More success than this cannot be possible, where God manages the affairs of the human being, and all the choices and actions are carried out by God. To be in such a position, certainly will have very important effects in the human being’s life .
