The first option is to transfer the domain name to your account.  Then it's easy.  The second option is to change the DNS in his account to point to your account.  Godaddy can help you and him do that if you want them to.  I'm not sure what the details are.

The solution of Mr.  Dave Baldwin is very funny. The solution was "Then you need to get together with your friend and have him do it."  
If my friend has to do this thing, I might have not asked question here at all.
I went deeper on godaddy help topics and found the solution.
Thank you all for spending time for me.
Oh, I am sorry. here it is.

1) On Godaddy Account where site is hosted:
=====================================
FIND IP ADDRESS OF YOUR WEBSITE

Log in to your Account Manager.
Click Web Hosting.
Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
Your hosting account's Shared IP Address displays in the Stats section on the left. If it's not displaying, click expand stats.

2) On Godaddy Account where domain name is registered:
===============================================
 Add an A Record

In the DNS Zone File, click Add Record.
From the Record type list, select A (Host).
Complete the following fields:
Host Name — Enter the host name the A record links to. Type @ to point the record directly to your domain name, including the www.
Points to IP Address — Enter the IP address your domain name uses for this host record.
TTL — Select how long the server should cache the information.
Click Save, and then click Save Changes. The new A record displays in the A (Host) section.

If you followed those directions, you did what I was suggesting.  I didn't know you had access to your friend's account so you could do it yourself.
