What are the characteristics of the righteous company?
The righteous company is the righteous person who is obedient to his Lord, adheres to the teachings of his religion, is eager to please Allah, hastens on the basis of faith to do all good deeds, turns away from all evil deeds out of fear of Allah, loves the Sunnah and those who follow it, accepts people as friends for the sake of Allah, opposes (the enemies of Allah) for the sake of Allah, resents sin and its people.
The righteous company reminds you of your Lord anytime you lose sight of Him; he assists and joins you in remembering your Lord.
According to An-Nawawi (may Allah have pity on him), “The believers (in their mutual support) are like a building, sections of which support other parts,” remarked the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). He also intertwined his fingers. It was agreed upon.
This report emphasises the immense rights that Muslims have over one another and encourages them to be compassionate, kind, and supportive of one another in anything that is not wrong or undesirable.
The righteous company is the one who seeks reasons for his brothers’ flaws rather than looking for them.
According to Ibn Maazin, the believer finds justifications for his brethren, whereas the hypocrite seeks out their flaws.
According to Al-Fudayl ibn ‘Iyaad, chivalry is to overlook your brothers’ mistakes.
Aadaab ‘Ishrah (p. 1-3).
As the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) described the Muslim, the righteous friend is the one whose words and acts Muslims are safe from.
According to Abu’l-Fayd ibn Ibraaheem al-Misri, you should stay company with someone whose harm you are safe from, because seeing him motivates you to do good and reminds you of your Lord. Aadaab ‘Ishrah (p. 3).
Even if he cannot physically assist them, the righteous company praises and talks good of those with whom he associates.
Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) said: O Messenger of Allah, we have never seen anything like the people to whose land we have come; they are most generous when they have enough and most supporting when they have little, according to Ahmad (12709) and Abu Daawood (4812). They saved us from work and shared with us everything we needed to survive. We are concerned that they will seize the entire award.
The righteous Company We Choose to Keep
Allah has blessed me with many wonderful friendships throughout my life. Most served as a comforting and healing balm that has helped me through some of the most difficult times of my life.
Others created so many dramas and upheavals that I could not release them fast enough! I have friendships that follow me from childhood, as I try to raise my own children, and I have encountered new relationships developing their own deep and meaningful connections.
The Prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) said: “When souls recognize each other, they become friends, otherwise they separate. [Muslim] The Prophet Sallallahuah’Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allah extol his mention) also said, “A true believer is a mirror for his brother.
He prevents it from all evil. [Abu Daawood] We are in fact a mirror of those we decide to assume as companions. I have been guilty of associating with individuals whose behavior is not worth mentioning, let alone imitating. I suffered the consequences of these alliances.
Left alone for a while after quitting their business, I suddenly saw the light and I recognized them for the lying / unreliable / deviant person they really were all the time. But then too, I became aware that I might not be so different, because I had found something pretty attractive in them to pursue an acquaintance, without worrying about all warning signs.
As believers, we are asked to pay attention to the companions we choose for friendship. Our friendships can bring us closer to our Creator or cause us to break all the bonds of faith that we have established.
As with most relationships in this life, we will experience blessings in some friendships and trials in others. Just who are your friends? How do they affect the person you are or hope to become? What kind of friend are you?
When faith weakens in the presence of good friendships, you discover that you are surrounded by those who are strong in front of you, by your side, and who provide you with indispensable support. When it seems that you may slip and fall, they are there with cords of faith that bind you around you and pull you up and forward.
The Prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) gave a good analogy to this kind of friendship by saying, “The good and the bad are like the musk carrier and the one who pulls the bellows.
With the musk carrier, he will give you a share, or you will buy him, or you will feel a pleasant scent; but whoever pumps the bellows, he will burn your clothes or you will feel a nauseating odor. Al-Bukhari
And what about your friends?
We are more likely to be similar to those with whom we spend most of our time. As the Prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) once said, “A person is likely to follow the faith of his friend, look (carefully) with whom you choose to befriend. traits of sincere, loving, true friends? They help you become a better and more productive person.
A good and sincere friend really encourages you, by his words or his actions, to reflect on oneself and to improve oneself. He / she is like a mirror for you. The Prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) said, “The believer is like a mirror to other believers (in truth).
[Abu Daawood] Just like the ability of a mirror to reflect faithfully, your friend should be faithful enough to give you an honest picture of yourself. They should be able to forgive your mistakes, but not hide or exaggerate your strengths and weaknesses. His manners and lifestyle remind you of Allah?
The Prophet sallallahuah `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) has already been questioned:” Who is the best person to become his friend? He who helps you to remember Allah and reminds him when you forget him, he advised wisely.
The Prophet sallallahuah `alayhi wa sallam was also asked (may Allah extol his mention): ‘Who is the best among the people?’ He replied: “Whoever, when you look at him, remember Allah” “Such a friend reflects qualities of love, mercy, honesty, service, patience, optimism, professionalism and of all the lifestyle taught by Islam.
Does he/ she only love you for the sake of Allah? Often, the friendships we have from school, work and our whole community can crumble over time if they are not initiated for the right reasons. A friendship based on Islamic principles is sincere and lasting. It can be strengthened by a higher purpose and a strong
Do you feel comfortable and safe in his presence? If you are in the middle of a friendship that leaves you guilty of what you do and the conversations you share, it may be time to question the benefits of that relationship.
The short time spent in this life with such a friend is it worth to face Allah? It is important that you have full confidence in your values and beliefs. This makes it much easier to define the limits and limits of what is acceptable. You must be fully aware of your limitations at all times.
Above all, you must know what pleases and offends Allah. Friendships based on superficial principles can lead you to an artificial world of false hopes and illusions. There are two ways to deal with a “toxic” friendship: try gently to influence your friend with a positive Islamic inspiration, or simply to end this relationship.
We all know the popular saying that every relationship we encounter has “one season and one reason,” meaning that certain friendships stand the test of time and last a lifetime, while others come in the form of short meetings. Every relationship has a valuable lesson to learn for us.
When you consider your friendships, remember the wise saying: “Better to be alone than to have an evil companion; and having a sincere companion is better than being alone.”
