‘Those in whose company you share reflect the state of your soul. If you make friendship with a fool, you will be subject to and influenced by foolery. If you make friends with a coward you will be weakened by his weakness.  If you make friends with a vicious and wicked person, he will sell you and your friendship at the cheapest price. If you make friends with a liar, he will make you visualize very near the things which lie at a great distance and will make you see at the great distance the things which are near to you. Those who align themselves with the corrupt will compromise their morality. Those who befriend the corrosive will eat away at their own strength. There are those who are bad at the core yet hide under a blanket of goodness.  Their wickedness cannot remain hidden forever.  Do not make the mistake of remaining in this friendship after the unveiling.  The glow of your good character will be dampened and you will be lured away from your path.  Stay true to the path you are travelling and leave those who drag you away to their own journey. Juma Mubaraka’ Shaykh Tahir
