The Company We Keep – Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

Bismillah-ir Rahman-ir Raheem

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said to Syedina Abu Dharr (radiallah anhu): “Loneliness is better than bad company, and good company is better than being alone; to speak good is better than being quiet, and to keep quiet is better than saying words of regret!”

People might blame you for not being social, or for not being around them, but what really matters is our choice of company, as company is infectious – so choose with whom to be!

As Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said: “The example of good company is like being in a perfumery, either remnants of the perfume remain on you or you will carry the perfume in your hands; and the example of bad company is like visiting the establishment of the blacksmith, where you will either be affected by the smoke or you will carry the scent of it!”
And Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said: “Everyone will be resurrected with his or her friend, – so choose who you will be with!”
…And as far as you remember Him, you are never alone!
