(Bismillah)

The true friend of Allah is one who has these three qualities

# A friend of God must have affection like the sun. When the sun rises, it is beneficial to all. All persons derive heat and light from it irrespective of whether they are Muslim, Christian, Sikh or a Hindu.

# A friend of God must be generous like an ocean or a river. We all get water from the river or sea to quench our thirst. No discrimination is made whether we are good or bad or whether we are a relation or a stranger.

# A friend of God is one who has the quality of hospitality like the earth. We are raised and cradled in its lap, and it is always spread below our feet.

The noblest of characters is possessed by one who is

1. Bountiful in poverty.

2. Content in hunger.

3. Cheerful in grief.

4. Friendly in hostility.

To ward off the eternal punishment of hell is to feed the hungry, redress the aggrieved & help the distressed.
