Mixing for the Good

BismIllah wa as salaamu alaykum.

When I read this, I thought of my feelings towards returning to the USA. In fact, I considered my closeted life there and how many times I've heard people say that being exposed to wrong-doing builds character. Hmmm. Wrong-doing certainly has pushed me to right-doing! I have hated so much the actions and effects of wrong-doing that I have run the opposite direction. However, mixing with the wrong-doers is another matter. Many do not have fear of the dangers. I just have this big banner pop up in my head, "You are on the deen of your companions!"

Ahmad ibn Harb (rahimahullâh) said, “There is nothing more beneficial to a Muslim’s heart than to mix with the righteous and to watch their actions, while nothing is more harmful to the heart than mixing with the sinners and watching their actions
