Yeah, I am friends with non Muslims. 1) Muslimah's didn't like me much... Cuz I wasn't supportive of their wearing hijaab with tight clothes. Sue me! I have 1 Muslimah friend though who's totally wonderful mashaAllah. :D 2)The non Muslim girls are intelligent and we helped each other with homework when we're stuck, so our friendship grew. And they're respectful of my deen, and even ask me questions, so its all good alhamdulillah.

I have lots of Muslim friends and lots of non muslim aqaintences. the reason why i call them that is because the true meaning of "Friend to me is someone who reminds me of Allah whenever i see them. Alhamdulillaah the sisters and i are very close and we always remind each other about allah 7 of us ( and growing be afrid be very afriad :p ) are all niqabs and we all did it around the same time.Its like a sorority club :) only for niqabi sisters... we go to the masjid together for halaaqa lechures and organize Islamic events for our community Alhamdulillaah. With my Non muslim Aqaintences when i do hang out with them its when i invite them to our sisters gathering or islamic events. And alhamdulillaah so far 2 of them became muslim. but sister mm_ca i understand really while i was in high School. i think the non muslims were closer to me and reminded me i was a muslim more then my so called "muslim" friends.

Uhh, well I have one, and she's my aunt... But other than that, nope I don't 'cause I go to an islamic school... Anyway, my aunt's cool, (a whole lot better than her mom) and she's more of a child than an adult, which is why I guess I like talking to her more than my other relatives... :p

A lot of them are muslim, a lot aren't, As long as your trying not to be like non muslims i think your spreading dawah, so its healthy wouldnt it be?

asslamu alaikum,

I have a friend that i call every now and then who is a non muslim...may Allah guide her..ameen.

She is a sweetheart..very caring..she has helped me with anything that i have needed.

She does not feel embarrassed to be seen with me, even though i cover from head to toe.

There is absolutley nothing wrong with having friends who are of a differnet faith. We must treat them with repsect, show them our wonderful way of life, and make dua for them to be guided.

:sl: I look at it as this. Being friends with non-muslims can get you to talk about Islam and then spread word about the relgion. All of my non-muslim friends know me as muslim and they see me praying 5x a day, they see me wearing hijab, then that's when they get curious and start to ask questions. When they ask questions, they learn more about Islam and then they get more interested. They try to seek knowledge from you. Like I said in anothr post, I am the only muslim person at my high-school which puts me in a postion to make ALOT of non-muslim friends. It sometimes gets annoying when they try to act stupid and be funny when they ask about Islam. Otherwise, one just has to be very patient and give them the knowledge that you have about Islam. You never know, one day they may convert into Islam. Subhanallah.:w:

I have nonmuslim friends, in work, and out of work. Its okay by me. The friends I had before islam, too, we are still friends, but live far apart, my home town is 1000 km from here. But we are more different now that we are grown ups, and we have issues between us, sadly. But not because of islam, its because of differencies in parenting, subhanAllah.

But I have some nonmuslim friends, who I meet after i became a muslimah, and we are good friends. One special, she buys halalmeat when I come over, and she does everything. She is educated and she has lots of knowledge, she is not like many other Norwegians, ignorants...

I would like to clear a misconception up. We muslims are not allowed to have ALLIES which means trusting our lives in their hands. We are allowed to be friends with them ofcourse otherwise how would u spread dawah. Some orientalist use this ayah to malign the religion and show it as an anti-social religion. The verse which says that 'if u befriend them then u are like them'. This is in the context which means that u cant have allies with them specially to attack another muslim country.

Jazakallah khair:w: :loving: :peace: :) :coolious: :confused:

I believe u r referring to this verse:
O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. -- Quran 5:51, Pickhtall Translation

If you read the verse in arabic u will find word "awlia" is used, which does not mean "friend" but "protector". Yusuf Ali's translation is bit more accurate on this verse:
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust. -- Quran 5:51, Yusuf Ali Translation

Also if u read ONLY 6 verses down u will find that Allah (SWT) tells us that only those who mock our religion r not to be taken as protectors:

O Ye who believe! Choose not for guardians such of those who received the Scripture before you, and of the disbelievers, as make a jest and sport of your religion. But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers. -- 5:57

Her hubby is intrested in islam aswell and she is fine with it so im happy about that Alhumdulilah...

Assalamu alaikum,

Im sorry sis, you can take non muslims as friends..its more along the lines of..you cannot take them as "protectors" ...and even im unsure if this word is correct.

However, if you have friends (whether they are muslim or not) and they are a bad influence on you, and you are weakening to there ways, then of course its much better to stay away.

Allah knows best.

Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraakatu,
Many people enter Islam through their friends.Alhumdulilah. I dont their is an issue with befriending a non muslim as long as it doesnt affect you in a negative way. If the person is not supportive of you covering or praying and so on are they really a friend? A true friend would accept you as you are. But then the question arises if they are supportive of you and accept you and Islam, Is it ok for you to accept them in their religious practices? Respect, acceptance, and friendship or relationships period is a two way street. so if you could not accept them as they are, are you considered a friend? Allahu Alim as I dont even know the answer to my questions *chuckles* I guess its something to ponder about eh?:confused: :nervous:

I for got to salaam out Wa Alaikum Asalaamu Wa Rahmatullahi Wa BAraakatu

alhamdulilah i do have many non muslim friends as i do muslim friends. I go to a non muslim college but alhamdulilah they are really understanding about islam. They realise were different, but they're not predjudice alhamdulilah.
They like learning and i like teaching them subhanalllah.

its nice to have a bridge, so that there is some communication going on. alhamdulilah its a great way to do dawah.

Ooohh, :thumbs_up I’m so glad we’re discussing this. This is really important especially for those living in non-Muslim countries. I’ve known my non-Muslim friend since the 4th grade. Now we’re attending the same university. I’ve really gotten close to her. But I feel that there should be limits, for example, I will not ask her for advice regarding life since her answers will be based on un-Islamic perspective.
I’m interested to see what u guys think about limits between our non-Muslim friends?

interesting topic!
i have a few non muslim friends but i can't really call them friends because i know they don't know and want the BEST for me!
but we go along fine!
what i make sure is to be the best at the best muslim behaviour specially when i am in their company because our actions make the best impact!
and i generally don't have to insist on my point of veiws..
they are nice people though! :)

by not interacting with them

it's hard to just be friends w/ muslims in a lot of cases. there r only 6 muslim boys out of like 400 (at least) students in my school, stretched out over four grades. n, not all of them are really into their deen. so, it's really hard not to be friends w/ nonmuslims. but, as long as you have the intention of da'wah, insh'Allah, i dont really see nethin wrong in it, even if u possibilities to be w/ muslims
