Islam Online: Islam & the Concept of Friendship

Prophet Mohammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
"The example of a good companion and a bad companion is like that of the seller of musk, and the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows. So as for the seller of musk then either he will grant you some, or you buy some from him, or at least you enjoy a pleasant smell from him. As for the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows then either he will burn your clothes or you will get an offensive smell from him."

(ignore the slight's a nice piece)

Truly great friends are really hard to come by, so when you find one with whom Allah joins your heart and soul, do not let them go...regardless of what happens in your life or how busy you Ustadha Umm Sahl reminded us...
