So when you least expect it you will find a friend or friends inshallah just don't expect it or be eager for it to happen. Maybe those people that you have come across are not good for you because you may look at some people and think oh she looks religious but you don;t know what their like inside like gossipy or backbiters etc. Maybe Allah saved you from befreinding those people or maybe because Allah just wants you to focus on yourself.
I would suggest that you focus on yourself and bettering yourself in everyway possible and make the best use of every second of your life because every second is too precious to waste. Focus on getting as close to Allah as possible.
Surely it is shaythan who is wanting you to lose hope and lose your faith in Islam. Don't let him do that sister because he picks at our weaknesses and when he finds a gap in our imaan he will chip away at it and make the gap bigger until we crumble! We have to do as much good as we can and get the closest to Allah so our gap gets filled and shaythan cannot penetrate.
Let us be the best towards others and try our best to benefit others even if they don't benefit us because surely our reward is with Allah!
Let us ONLY want to please him and he will do whatevers best for us! Let us befriend Allah for surely he loves us 70 times more than a mother loves its baby, that kind of love is unimaginable!
Also my sister we have to try and make effort aswell like for example you should get involved with sisters circles and if they tell you when their meetings are then you should attend for the intention of pleasing Allah and if its best for you and meant to be then you will find many friends inshallah.
Remember the true friend is the one who benefits you in your deen and the bad friend is rthe one who will drag you to hell.
May Allah give us true friends that will benefit us and may Allah befriend us so that we may be the closest to him!
Put your full faith and hopes and trust in him my sister and whatever is best for you will happen inshallah. Please remember me in your dua's.
