  • Is it true that it is haram to be friends with non Muslims?

    I go to a public school in England, and there are no other Muslims in my year. As for my community, the rest of the muslim girls in my town, are not good in character, and I'm not talking about not praying etc. but gossiping and backbiting (usually aimed at me). So all my real friends are non muslim. But I saw on one site that they said it is haram?!?! If it was I don't what I would do. Just be a loner I guess :(

      As a universal religion preaching peace and tolerance to the world,the majority of whose inhabitants are non Muslims,how can it be haram to have a civilised relationship with them ?Islam ,being a religion of logic,is far away from this type of stand..

        it's not, it's encouraged to show good conduct to the kuffar, however what is forbidden is taking them as close friends, those you trust and ally with.

          There is nothing wrong with having non-muslim friends....anyone who says otherwise is deluded

            Be very careful about keeping any non-Muslim friends as there are risks, but by all means be polite and kind to them and take every opportunity to tell them about Islam. Try to represent Islam well through your behaviour towards them but be please be wary of becoming close to them due to the danger of drifting towards their ways. In our family our kids are forbidden from having close non-Muslim friends for this reason, but are always required to be kind and may invite them to our house for dawah. Always remember that every non-Muslim is a potential revert - speaking as a revert myself!
            Allah is so Great and Merciful that although we continue to disobey Him, He still awaits for our repentance so that He may forgive us.

              Its only not allowed if you consider their trust and viewpoints above Islam. Otherwise its fine.

              Friends is good to have. Trust me, being a loner is not fun... it gets very lonely.

                It's more than that.

                    Haram to be friends with non Muslims is very serious.It is therefore haram to have any business dealings with them- in Europe, America,Australia,half of Asia and Africa.No buying,no selling and hence rejecting their products altogether.Business is only one domain.
