Tip of the day on Being More Positive with a verse form Al-Quran:
Day 6: Surround yourself with positive people
Allah s.w.t. says in Surah An-Nisa’, verse 69:
وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّـهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّـهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاءِ وَالصَّالِحِينَ ۚ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـٰئِكَ رَفِيقًا ﴿٦٩
And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions. (69)
Rasulullah s.a.w. in many hadiths taught us to be conscious (aware) when choosing friends to surround ourselves with.
The moment we choose to live life with positivity we need to choose positive people to surround ourselves with.
The verse above teaches us that excellent companions are those who are positive. And positive people say: “YES!” Thus the verse begins with those who obey i.e. those who say YES! to Allah.
Research shows that the old adage that money doesn’t buy happiness is true. However being rich in friends certainly does make a difference. According to a survey from the National Opinion Research Center, the more friends you have the happier you are.
Other studies show that close relationships promote health, support longevity, and enhance positivity. So, today make time to connect with positive people in your life and take the time to strengthen your relationships with them. Get together with an old friend , call a loved one or take action to make new friend. Positive people make us feel more positive so spend time with them today.
