Friendship with nomuslims

Post by Um_Sufyan » Thu Jun 30, 2011 12:21 pm

Can we have friendship with no muslims? What a new muslim should to do if he live in a place where the most of people are not muslims and if all his friends are not muslims? Is right to leave them or keep their friend? What he should to do when his friends say bad things: leave the place or make silence?

AssalamuAlikum W rahamtullahi W barakatuh,
this topic is very important and also very long to discuss so I suggest you to read the links that Brother Al-Isnaad "JazahuAllahu khairan" posted.

also read this link about Principles and guidelines for Muslims’ relations with non-Muslims
http://www.islamqa.com/en/ref/26721
مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَى وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ
"Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do."16:97

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
assalamualikum wa rahmat ALlahi wa brakatuh

sis I read some ayaat I hope that help you some how.. you can chk tafseer too. and make sure what you check is all true because there is always a little chance of error in compiling/collecting on internet. Just check from more then one source.

For Tafsir/Explanation : http://www.qtafsir.com

Y/OUR FRIEND
Your ally is none but Allaah and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed - those who establish prayer and give zakah, and they bow [in worship].
http://tanzil.net/#5:55

O you who have believed, take NOT those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as allies. And fear Allaah, if you should [truly] be believers.

O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.
http://tanzil.net/#5:51

ABOUT ARGUE/REPLY

And do not argue with the People of the Scripture except in a way that is best, except for those who commit injustice among them, and say, "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you. And our God and your God is one; and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him."
http://tanzil.net/#29:46

And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah [recited], they are denied [by them] and ridiculed; so do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together -
http://tanzil.net/#4:140

And when you see those who engage in [offensive] discourse concerning Our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversation. And if Satan should cause you to forget, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people.
http://tanzil.net/#6:68

well there is one sect of people of book mention in Qur'aan who believe, but they are very few in number.

And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allaah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, [being] humbly submissive to Allaah. They do not exchange the verses of Allaah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
http://tanzil.net/#3:199

And when they (who call themselves Christians) listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad sallallahu alyhe wassallam), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They say: "Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.
http://tanzil.net/#5:83

The Explanation of this ayaat is as:

This refers to the good news that they have about the advent of Muhammad sallallahu alyhe wassallam, who testify to the TRUTH and believe in it.

Such SECT of Christians are those mentioned in Allaah's statement,

وَإِنَّ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَـبِ لَمَن يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِمْ خَـشِعِينَ للَّهِ

And there are, certainly, among the People of the Scripture, those who believe in Allah and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before Allah.
3:199

and,

الَّذِينَ ءَاتَيْنَـهُمُ الْكِتَـبَ مِن قَبْلِهِ هُم بِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ - وَإِذَا يُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ قَالُواْ ءَامَنَّا بِهِ إِنَّهُ الْحَقُّ

مِن رَّبِّنَآ إنَّا كُنَّا مِن قَبْلِهِ مُسْلِمِينَ

Those to whom We gave the Scripture before it, they believe in it (the Qur'an). And when it is recited to them, they say, "We believe in it. Verily, it is the truth from our Lord. Indeed even before it we were Muslims''

28:52-53

لاَ نَبْتَغِى الْجَـهِلِينَ

"We seek not the ignorant.''
28:55

This is why Allah said here,

فَأَثَابَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِمَا قَالُواْ

So because of what they said, Allah awarded them...

rewarding them for embracing the faith and recognizing and believing in the truth,

جَنَّـتٌ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا الاٌّنْهَـرُ خَـلِدِينَ فِيهَا

Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise), they will abide therein forever. and they will never be removed from it, for they will dwell and remain in it forever and ever,

وَذَلِكَ جَزَآءُ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

Such is the reward of good-doers

who follow the truth and obey it wherever, whenever and with whomever they find it.

♥ ALLAH KNOWS BEST ♥
