    My dad always said to me to be open to everyone, and don't seclude yourself.
    Rather seclude myself then have friends who can destroy my deen
    Don't depend too much on anyone in this world because even your own shadow leaves you when you are in the darkness

      If we started to seclude ourselves, we'd become like Jews.

      Living in our own communities.

      Nobody learning about religion.

      The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah . And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. [62:5]
      And whatever you have of favor - it is from Allah. Then when adversity touches you, to Him you cry for help

      [an-Nahl 16:53].

        Actually no. I wouldn't have friends who listen to music, who do stupid dumb haram things. Giving dawah isn't hard nor do I need to have friends to do Dawah. And I don't need friends who are losers and can damage my deen.

        Let's us not forget Ibrahim (as) who had no friends so Allah became his friend. I
        Don't see how people are trying to make excuses to keep pathetic friends who do major haram things.

        In another Hadith, Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “The example of a good companion and a bad companion is like that of the seller of musk, and the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows.. So as for the seller of musk then either he will grant you some, or you buy some from him, or at least you enjoy a pleasant smell from him. As for the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows then either he will burn your clothes or you will get an offensive smell from him.” Bukhari and Muslim

            Just because we avoid one or two people who purposely do haram and don't seem to care, doesn't mean that we are secluding ourselves.

            There are plenty of good strong people to socialise with where you can encourage each other in the good ways.

            I don't mean reject brothers and sisters who occasionally sin or who accidentally do, because we all do that. Neither do I mean rejecting someone who is weaker, because we all are weaker - that's relative. But I mean it is good only to avoid if that certain person doesn't care that they are affecting you with their haram stuff. That isn't a friendship if they know they are affecting badly another person and they don't stop. They might be a brother but they are not a friend.

              Completely agree.

                "blind faith" to a certain extent.
                not going out to seek knowledge and just listening to people.

                like in Pakistan going after peers etc.
                DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE IF YOU DON'T KNOW ME.

                  there are certain things that are acceptable and certain things that arent.

                  usually when someone rants on and on about w"wahhabis" they have a questionable aqeedah.

                  and no i dont consider myself salafi

                    I still don't understand. I like talking to everyone and I always converse with a pair of Muslims who are openly having a haram relationship in front of me.

                    I let it by what they're doing is wrong. Just talk to them as friends- especially the brother.

                    Would you do that or would you just ignore them?

                      I don't wholly agree with you Abu Mubarak

                      Maghrebia I'm not on facebook, never have been, but maybe when I set up a business- it can be helpful. And when looking for a spouse I get my brother to check if they're on facebook, in those ways it can be helpful because it gives you a rough idea of what they could be like.

                      My argument is this, I'm anonymous on here, but if I was on facebook I'd be the same person I am on here, nothing to hide and nothing to be afraid of
