Friendship is learning, I heard someone said. I think now I understand what it means. Friendship need you to be an open person, right? By trusting and accepting other people come into our life, even sometimes messing up our business, hehe. In friendship, there are times we fight or encourage each other. It means we will have to learn how to forgive and take care of others.
Friendship is indeed beautiful, but…
Islamic brotherhood is more than wonderful. It’s a miracle.
There is no need for blood or family relation to build it. Everything within it is sweet, no bitterness. You know why? Because ‘iman’ makes those bitternesses tasted sweet, miseries we feel as something we value and cherish. Every single moment in this life becomes meaningful. Every single event happened to us is precious. Every step we take makes us learn something. When you fell you won’t be scared, because there always are brothers and sisters ready to catch you and wake you up. Moreover, that kind of bond will never break as long as we hold on to the faith. It’s not only lasted in this world, but also longer, to the hereafter. ‘Forever’ do comes true in this bond.
That’s why wonderful is not enough to describe Islamic brotherhood.
