This is an advice from Allah to the prophet (Pbuh) That hold yourself back and keep it the company of those who are following you now, who are the poor, the needy, the slaves and yeah,
you desire that people, you know, from the upper class, people from the rich and Powerful, the wealthy embrace your message and follow you and they don’t, you know, turn away with their nose and their ear because of the fact that poor people are surrounding, no… From Surat al-kahf, verse 28.
Be the company of those who are sincere. Don’t worry about those people who they are. if you want to be more sincere with Allah, you to find the right company. You need to be in the company of people who remind you about Allah.
Here, think about the people that you spend time with.. When you are in their company or when you leave from their company, how do you feel?
Sometimes people spend their time with somebody else and then they leave feeling jealous; that is not a person who reminds you about Allah.
We should seek out friendship with people when we leave their company or when we’re in their company, they remind us about Allah. They remind us about the things that make us less worldly even if they’re not funny, even if they’re not rich, even if they’re not influential, even if they’re not popular. Why? Because they are giving you something that money cannot buy, and that is increasing you in your sincerity
