Quran 9: 119. O ye who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are true.
Allah (swt) never issues us a command that we cannot do. If Allah (swt) has commanded us to do something then it is definitly something that we can do. What is a greater blessing is something that is found in this ayah, that Allah (swt) actually tells us how to fulfill the command He is issuing us to do. For example, Allah (swt) tells us to fear Him. So the question comes how can we inculcate this quality of fearing Allah (swt)? The answer is found in this particular case in the same ayah, “Kunu ma’as sadiqeen”, to be with those who are true. What is sidq? Without going into detail, sidq is a quality of the heart. It means to be true in speech and actions. If we stay in the company of the saadiqeen, the pious people, those who are true in speech and actions, then we will obtain the quality of fearing Allah (swt). The best way to lose old bad habits is to lose old bad company.
The Messenger of Allah (May Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) once said: “Man is influenced by the faith of his friends. Therefore, be careful of whom you associate with.” #convocation #HamnaCenter #companyofsadiqeen #loversofallah #blessed #alhumdulillah
