We cannot talk about youth issues without diving into the topic of friendship.
Good friends have greater ability to lift us up and steer us toward righteousness. On the flip side, negative companions can lead us down a dark path, influencing choices with potentially adverse consequences.
Where can you connect with like-minded people with shared values? Whether it’s at a local mosque, Islamic center, charity, or community organization, these are spaces where meaningful connections can flourish.
Follow the prophetic advice: kindness, patience, courage, honesty, and commitment to truth—these traits light the way in selecting friends who bring out the best in us.
Whether Muslim or not, search for these virtues and value quality over quantity.
Remember, popularity does not necessarily equal these traits, so make sure you choose wisely.
