Khalil (The Greatest Friend), But Islamic Brootherhood is Far Better

The qualities of our companions are what help us to shape a beneficial path ahead or if we do not choose those we call friend carefully we may find ourselves traveling a disastrous road with the only end being off a cliff. Show choose wisely those who encourage ad enjoin good and forbid evil.

Chapter 5: The saying of the Prophet (saws) “If! were to take a KhaliI…”

Narrated Ayyub ; The Prophet (saws), said, “If I were to take a Khalil, I would have taken him (i.e., Abu Bakr (raa)) as a Khalil (intimate friend), but the Islamic brotherhood is better.”
