A wicked companion

Ja’far bin Sulayman said: “I saw Malik bin Dinar sitting and next to him was a dog. I said to him, ‘What is this, O Aba Yahya?’ He said, ‘Better than having a wicked man for a companion’.” [Al-Zuhd al-Kabir, al-Bayhaqi]

Surround yourself with righteous people and don’t give room for anyone to jeopardize your faith. Evil companions are a disease that spread from the ears to the heart and make you a prisoner of their thought, manner, and agenda. Search for the pure, the humble, the knowledgeable, the kind, the generous, and preserve them like you would preserve your own children.
