Before I write this post I would like to say that " I am pleased with ALLAH as my Lord, Islam as my Religion, and Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) as my Prophet.
Since accepting Islam, Alhamdulillah , I have made out there a wonderful new family and friends, my brothers and sisters in Islam.
I am grateful and appreciative to every and single one of you/them who have helped me to develop in the Only Truth Faith of Islam.
I am grateful for the support we show each other for keeping On the Straight Path.
It is only sometimes that I allow myself to look back and miss those who are no longer part of my new life.
The heart grieves for those who no longer share the dreams, and the aims that will bring us to the same destination, and keep us close to Allah, The Exalted.
I have nor regrets whatsoever in my new faith. It is only that I would like for my lost friends and kin to be able to see the truth and be guided by the light of Allah, The Most High and the Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
In the meantime I can only make dua for their guidance.
"For those who Allah guides , No One can misguide and the for those who Allah misguides No One can guide."
And We never sent a messenger save with the language of his folk, that he might make (the message) clear for them. Then Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Wise.
We read in a Hadith:
'Amr b. 'As reported: I heard it from the Messenger of Allah
(may peace be upon him) quite audibly and not secretly: Behold! the posterity of my fathers, that is, so and so, are not my friends. Verily Allah and the pious believers are my friends. (Book #001, Hadith #0417)and not secretly: Behold! the posterity of my fathers, that is, so and so, are not my friends.
Verily Allah and the pious believers are my friends. Sahih Muslim (Book #001, Hadith #0417)
So however the heart misses everybody , the choices are clear.
Jazakallah again for reading :)
