Amazing! Three- Best of The Quran Known From Righteous Company – Shaykh Omar Suleiman

What are you actually putting into the environment around you and that should be an analogy for what you bring to the environment around you and from what the environment brings to you? If have a righteous friend that person’s influence naturally will rub off on you.

The prophet (saw) said you’re on the religion of your friends. If you’re around people that stink, if you’re around people that have bad manners, if you’re around people that don’t have standards of worship or purpose, if you’re around people that waste themselves and things that are of no benefit, even if you commit none of those sins you will inevitably be influenced by them.You cannot continue to hang around a dumpster and not expect to smell like garbage at some point yourself.

so the societal impact and you know what?  Sometimes in fitna usually a fitna, a tribulation or dissension is started by one or two people but the stink spreads so much that you don’t even know where it started in the first place if you walk into a community that’s been embroiled in fitna for many years and you just see chaos and everybody’s fighting each other. You’re like where did this start?

 

If you’re around someone that acts in that their character will rub off on you and you know what the scary thing about this is, you might not even know how bad you stink until someone else smells you.

Do You Stink Or Smell Good? Amazing Advice From Imam Shafi (Rah) – Shaykh Omar Suleiman

Imam Shafi (Rah) said that i wish that my knowledge would be spread. I wish that everyone would benefit from my knowledge no one would say my name. That’s why Allah (swt) made him the person that he was and elevated him to the place that he was because his interest wasn’t spreading that goodness, not in being named the source of that.

When the environment around you gets tough and when people are aggressive with you and abusive of you because usually you stink because other people stink with you when the world stinks you’re more likely to stink too, right? He said (ra) that the foolish one addresses me with words of disgrace but I hate to respond to him in like manner, the more ignorant he proves the more patience I become just like the incense, the more you burn it the more its fragrance is released, subhanAllah.

There’s a saying that you can be much more influential if people are not aware of your influence. Just Like with the mother whose child misses her when she goes away. Oftentimes the good influence is not recognized until that’s that sweet smell, the source of that sweet smell is no longer there.

Do you stink or do you smell good? Do you rub off good on people or do people rub off evil on you?
