I used to have a lot of friends, all from Poland as I'm polish. Unfortunately, since I converted to Islam, my best friends have left me and additionally betrayed me.... I lost the trust to people. It's too much difficult for me to open for new relations now. I have noticed that as long as so-called friends needs yo (your time, your money, your advice, your attention), they are your best friends for ever. But if only you start to "disturb" them (like in my case, by different looking-wearing hijab, different thinking-being Muslimah, different way of spending free time-refusing invitations to parties etc), they slowly cut contacts with you. It was the most painful experience for me!
But I trust in goodness and pure heart. I have found here in UK some woman from Oman, who fulfilled the emptiness in my heart and replaced me all friends whom I had in the past. I consider her as my best friend, because I believe that she will never leave me alone, insha-Allah. She loves Islam and fear Allah the same as me. And she cares about me and my soul like the true sister.
Thank you Suhaila!
May Allah rewards all your good deeds which you are doing for me! AMEN!
