Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. And Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. And unto Allah is the journeying.
Laa yattakhizil-Mu’-mi-nuunal-Kaafiriina ‘awliyaaa-‘a min- duunil- Mu’-miniin. Wa many-yaf-‘al zaalika fa-laysa minallaahi fii shay-‘in ‘illaaa ‘an-tattaquu minhum tuqaah. Wa yuhazziru-kumullaahu Nafsah. Wa ‘ilallaahil-masiir.

Disbelievers Are Not Your Friends
LESSON # 346 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Disbelievers Are Not Your Friends
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 28 of 200, Section –3 (Part – 3)
It was told in the previous lesson that Allah Almighty is Able to give honor and sovereignty to whom He wishes and Can snatch these things from whom He wills. Each kind of government and empire, prestige, honor and possession are in His control. Therefore, it does not suit the Muslims, who really believe in Him, if they increase friendship voluntarily or without knowledge with the disbelievers, enemies of Allah Almighty, and Infidels, leaving their Muslim brothers or considering them not enough. The enemies of Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) can never become their friends. One who opposes it, should think about himself that he has no concern with the love of Allah Almighty. Entire hopes of a Muslim should be related only to Allah Almighty.
Three forms of good behavior are possible into the Humankind:
2. Apparent politeness
3. Kindness and doing well
Religious Scholars have told that first form that is to say; real friendship with the Infidels is unlawful in all conditions. Third form (Kindness and doing well) is legal only with those Infidels who would never be ready to fight with the Muslims. Second form (Apparent politeness) is legal only under three conditions:
· For self protection
· Trying him to be in Islam
· In the form that you are a host, it means that when any Infidel comes to you as a guest.
Besides these, three forms, friendship is not allowed anyway to get personal advantage or wealth, but when there is danger that he will put obstacles in the way of religion then also no friendship is allowed.
Allah Almighty frightens the Muslims from His torment who keep friendship with the Infidels so that they would bear in mind that at last every person will have to go back towards Him. He will reward or punish in accord with one’s deeds and it will not be possible to escape from His grasp.
