  • How to Deal With A Bad Companion

    ibn al-Qayyim rahimullah said:

    "Know that the greatest of losses is for you to be preoccupied with one who will bring you nothing but a loss in your time with Allah - the Mighty and Majestic - and being cut off from Him, a wasting your time with the person, a weakening of your energy, and the dispersing of your resolve. So, if you are tested with this - and you must be tested with this - deal with him according to how Allah would wish, and be patient with him as much as possible. Get closer to Allah and His Pleasure by way of this person, and make your getting together with him something to benefit from, not something to incur a loss from.

    Be with him as if you are a man who is on a road who was stopped by another man, who then asks you to take him on your journey. Make sure that you are the one who gives him a ride, and that he is not the one giving you the ride.

    If he refuses, and there is nothing to gain from travelling with him, do not stop for him, bid him farewell, and do not even turn back to look at him, as he is a highway robber, regardless of who he really is.

    So, save your heart, be wary of how you spend your days and nights, and do not let the Sun set before you arrive at your destination. "

    ['al-Wabil as-Sayyib'; p. 45]

      It simple. The only way to definitely resist a negative influence from a bad companion is to give him dawah of good deeds.

      As mentioned in the Quran: “Wallazina Jahadu Fina, lanahdeyannahum subulana, Innallaha lamaal Muhseneen” [Al-Ankabut, 29:69];

      Translation: As for those who strive in Us, We surely guide them to Our path, and Lo! Allah is with the good (Al-Muhseneen). Amen!

        when I first saw this, I though it said "bad comment" loool I didn't think u were one to get emotional over rep comments.

        You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

            You cannot be nice to someone that has repeatedly and deliberately done bad to you.
            "Try to distance yourself from everything that causes you worry and sadness, so that you may always live with peace of mind and an open and tranquil heart, seeking Allah and His worship and working on your worldly and otherworldly matters, for if you try this, you will find rest.
