With Whom Should We Be?

BismiLlahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ

(Qur’ān 09:119). ‘Yā ‘Ayyuhā l-Ladhīna ‘Āmanū t-Taqū l-Llaha Wa Kūnū Ma’a s-Sādiqīn’, ‘O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with the truthful.’ Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says to believers, “Be with the truthful and righteous ones”. Fear Allah ﷻ and be with them. Stay away from bad people. Stay away from those who are not on the way of Allah ﷻ, because the heaviness and darkness that comes upon them will come to you. There is always darkness on people who are not on the way of Allah ﷻ. That darkness just takes away the light. The darkness that we mean occurs in daylight too. Even though there is light during the day, people have darkness upon them. Only the light of Iman in Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla can remove that darkness.

Those who speak badly about Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and show lack of Adab towards Islam and Muslims have darkness upon them. It is not good to approach them. It is possible for the purpose of work, or when they ask for advice. Otherwise, if they mock you and talk nonsense, stay away from them.

Be together with the good ones. “يَدُ اللَّهِ مَعَ الْجَمَاعَةِ”, Allah’s ﷻ Hand of Power is upon the Jama’ah and the community [Hadith]. This is also important. Believers must be together with believers. They should consult and help each other. That brings more Barakah to believers and Muslims.

Nowadays, rebellion against Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and rebellion against all kinds of goodness are shown as if it is a skill. That is not a skill but only harm. So our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “الْمُؤْمِنُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْبُنْيَانِ الْمَرْصُوصِ”, “The believer to another believer is like [the bricks of] a firm building.” Sadaqa RasūluLlāh fi-ma Qal aw kama Qal (The Messenger of Allah has said the truth in what he said or as he said.) Believers support other believers. They are like solid walls of a castle. When alone, perhaps, there are things they don’t know. When they are together with those who don’t believe in Allah ﷻ, who don’t do what Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla orders and who go against Him ﷻ, they may get harmed by them when they’re on their own.

Therefore, stay away from them and be together with those who have Iman. “كُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ”, “Kūnū Ma’a s-Sādiqīn”, “Be with the truthful.” (Qur’ān 09:119). This is an order. Be together with the truthful and righteous ones. May Allah ﷻ make us all be with them. May Allah ﷻ give guidance to the bad ones insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
