Audio: We Are the Strangers

 In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  We Are the Strangers

A short, passionate and humourous talk by Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis, at the White Mountains in al-Madīnah, about how Allāh has blessed Ahl al-Sunnah, in every time and place, with the desire to be together and with recognizing that they are different from the people around them, and for that reason, they come together and love each other for the sake of Allāh taʿala. (From the 2012 Five Pillars Dawrah in Medīnah, Saudi Arabia, hosted by the brothers at Salafī Publications.)

Benefit: Importance of Choosing Companions Wisely

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Question: Can you explain to us the Ḥadīth of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam): the person is upon the religion of his companion.

Answer: The ḥadīth is clear, that one’s companions leave behind an affect on him, so it is upon the Muslim to choose an upright friend who—through his companionship—will benefit him, make him stronger in his religion and (aid him in) avoiding bad companionship. The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said:

The example of the good and evil companions is like a bearer of musk and a person blowing a pair of bellows. As for the musk bearer, he either gives you some, or you buy from him, or at least you get a pleasant smell from him. As for the blacksmith, he either gets your clothes burnt or you get an unpleasant smell from him.[Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukharī, Ḥadīth #2101].

Likewise, the saying of the poet:

If you (seek) companionship with the people then accompany the best of them. And do not accompany the corrupted lest that you spoil along with them.

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān

Benefit: Regarding the Toronto Community Making ʿUmrah (AH 1438)

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Our brother and teacher, Mūsá Richardson, commends the Salafīs of Toronto for going on ʿUmrah (AH 1438) in such great numbers, and going with upright Salafi companions. This, he said, is from the signs of goodness in the community (Toronto). He makes duʿāʾ that Allāh, subḥānahu wa-taʿālá, brings them back to their community safe and sound and that He blesses them in their companionship, acts of worship and their visits with the scholars, and also, that He brings them back in good health, and with accepted actions, forgiven sins and raised ēmān.

Benefit: The Best Company

 In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 A man was once asked: "Who best keeps you company?" "These," he said, as he gazed at his books. So, he was asked: "Of the people?" He replied, "The ones that populate its pages."1

Benefit: Who to Love and Trust, Hate and Suspect [Signs of Sincerity]

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

It is reported that ʿUmar ibn al-Khattâb – Allāh be pleased with him – said: We were once in a time when we did not think anyone learned the Quran seeking anything but Allāh the Exalted, but now I fear there are men who learn it and intend the people and what they can get from them. So seek Allāh with your recitation and deeds. For verily, we used to know you when Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s peace and blessings be upon him – was amongst us, when revelation would descend and Allāh would tell us about you. As for today, Allāh’s Messenger – peace and blessings be upon him – has passed on, and the revelations have stopped, and I only know you as I say: whoever shows what is good, we love him for it and think good of him, and whoever shows what is evil, we hate him for it and suspect him. Your secret and private matters are between you and your Lord the Mighty and Majestic..1

Who Is a Good Companion?

  Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

How should a Muslim choose his/her friends? Good companions are beneficial in this life and towards the ākhirah, having bad companions can harm you in this life and in the hereafter. An important discussion as many Muslims, even after being guided to the Sunnah, turn away from Ahl al-Sunnah due to bad companionship with those who sin. A lecture by  Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī, during a visit to Toronto, Canada (June 2012). He spoke during the seminar entitled,  The Sickness and the Cure  on issues of disease and rectification (of the heart).
