A friend once told me, she was with her friends, physically (hanging around, doing discussions, etc...), but deep inside the heart it ached for being with 'em.Huh? Err... i don't get the meaning in the first round.Then i asked, ''why''? She explained~
Yes! Her explanation do suit my situation sometimes. We may eat we them, laugh with them, hear their deadly funny story, lend ears to love stories...list goes on.But, they will never cry with u (if they will it may just be for the sake of a good relationship,no more than that), they will be no conversation that will remind the soul about the ultimate goal of living in this life, no takmil wa istiqmal (correct each other mistake)....lots~
Instead, the friendships will full with laugh and laugh and laugh, then have meals together, chattering about life (study?gossips?..*cough*), go sightseeing plan, shopping trip, take pictures (extra-unneeded pose), have fun plans, erm...sharing the pain of Ausmat sometimes...Is that what we live for? is that what a friend (or friends)for?
Thats a BIG different of a friendship for Allah's sake and friendship for fun and fulfilling the world's need *fullstop*
p/s: as we are talking about the beauty of the world, we tend forget about the beauty of the ultimate Jannah. When we are distract and allure into the colourful enjoyments of the small impermanent world, we will be weak, aimless, astray (im imagining a feral cat..~) and never see the ultimate life and goal- the hereafter.
