The answers on Hawramani.com are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can
view Ikram Hawramani's credentials
on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions
of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
Salam alaikum. Is it a sin or prideful of us to be selective in choosing the friends we surround ourselves with?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
No, that’s how friendship works. We like to befriend those who are like ourselves in their thinking and principles.
And God knows best.
