Sitting with the Righteous

1 min read


ابن القيم رحمه الله: مجالسة الصالحين تحولك من ستة إلى ستة
1- من الشك إلى اليقين.
2- ومن الرياء إلى الإخلاص.
3- ومن الغفلة إلى الذكر.
4- ومن الرغبة في الدنيا إلى الرغبة في الآخرة.
5- ومن الكبر إلى التواضع.
6- ومن سوء النية إلى النصيحة.

Ibn al-Qayyim May Allah have mercy on him said:

Sitting with the righteous transforms you by taking you away from six (characteristics) and replacing them with six others.

(It replaces)

  1. Doubt with certainty
  2. Showing off with Sincerity
  3. Headlessness with remembrance
  4. Desire for the Dunya with the desire for the hereafter.
  5. Pride with Humility
  6. Bad intentions with Sincere Advice
