    "Praise be to Allaah.

    It is not permissible for a Muslim to make friends with a mushrik or to take him as a close friend, because Islam calls on us to forsake the kaafirs and to disavow them, because they worship someone other than Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Take not as friends the people who incurred the Wrath of Allaah (i.e. the Jews). Surely, they have despaired of (receiving any good in) the Hereafter, just as the disbelievers have despaired of those (buried) in graves (that they will not be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection)”

    [al-Mumtahanah 60:13]

    This was also the teaching of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

    1 – It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that he heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say, “Do not keep company with anyone but a believer and do not let anyone eat your food but one who is pious.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2395; Abu Dawood, 4832. Abu ‘Eesa al-Tirmidhi said: this hadeeth is hasan. It was also classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 2519).

    Abu ‘Eesa al-Khattaabi said: Rather he warned against keeping company with anyone who is not pious and against mixing with them or eating with them, because eating with a person instills friendship and love in the heart.

    He said: do not make friends with anyone who is not pious; do not take him as a companion with whom you eat and chat.

    (Ma’aalim al-Sunan, Haamish Mukhtasar Sunan Abi Dawood, 7/185, 186).

    2 – It was narrated from Samurah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not live among the mushrikeen and do not mix with them, for whoever lives among them or mixes with them is not one of us.” (Narrated by al-Bayhaqi, 9/142; al-Haakim, 2/154. He said, it is saheeh according to the conditions of al-Bukhaari. The hadeeth was also classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilat al-Saheehah, 2/229 with its corroborating reports).

    But it is permissible to deal with them in a kind manner in the hope that they might become Muslim.

    It was narrated that Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: There was a Jewish boy who used to serve the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and he fell sick. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to visit him. He sat by his head and said, “Become Muslim.” (The boy) looked at his father who was with him, and he (the father) said, “Obey Abu’l-Qaasim (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).” So he became Muslim, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) went out, saying, “Praise be to Allaah Who has saved him from the Fire” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1290).

    And Allaah knows best."

            The ruling is general, it is not permitted,

            Why would you want to add a Kaafir /Mushrik to your Facebook and share personal posts, pics and images or videos with them?

              Personal posts,pics and images or videos should not be shared with fellow Muslims as well. One never knows how their mind and heart function .At present the harvest of sects and sub sects ,divisions and sub divisions in the community are abounding and rich as never before.

                  Proceed moderately.No harm in opinion sharing on so many emerging topics :political,religious,social,economic,sport,medical etc etc.Avoid personal pics ,images,videos.

                    Yes,

                    You should be civil and polite to them, but they aren't your friends.

                    Surah Al-Ma'idah 5:55

                    "Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship)."

                      Rightly so. Those who establish regular prayers and charity but are not humble are to be excluded.Allah knows best.

                        How do you define a friend? Is it companionship? Like a person who helps you when there is no other else to help you?

                          Yes, for example someone you share personal stuff with and gives you good advice and helps you when your in trouble.

                            That's not what the ayah says.

                            The ayah is talking about the believers as your real awliya/friends/protectors, helpers with Allah عز و جل and the Rasul صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم

                            Humility is very important,, but If a Muslim isn't humble it does not mean he becomes a kaafir who can cut of from the company of the believers.

                            This does not however mean you should choose bad company, friends should be upright Muslims, they have a influence on you and your behaviour.

                              Non Muslims account for 76% of world population.Among the Muslims,the tragedy today is the high level of intolerance and self-destruction going on.This is a situation which further narrows the choice of friends.
