The great Aalim Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam (may Allah SWT accept him amongst the shuhadaa) said:
“A group of friends are all like each other, and the longer the friendship lasts, the closer the character and manners of each person in the group will be to the others. Do not believe that a good person can live for long with a corrupt person, unless the corrupt person improves and follows the example of the good person. This is why you should look for the good people, and a friend is like a chain: he will either drag you into Paradise, or drag you into Hell. He will either cause you problems or he will help you solve your problems.”

Benefits Regarding Idiots and How to Deal with Them
Ibn Al-Jawzee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said in his book: Akhbaar Al-Hamqaa wal-Mughaffileen (Narrations regarding the Foolish and Heedless):
“The idiot is known by six characteristics:
1. Becoming angry over nothing.
2. Giving to one who should not be given to.
3. Speaking regarding that which is of no benefit.
4. Trusting everyone.
5. Spreading secrets and not differentiating (in that) between his friend and his enemy.
6. Speaking about whatever comes to his heart whilst believing that he is the most intelligent of the people.”
Ibn Al-Jawzee said:
“From the characteristics of the idiot is to be pleased with a lie if it is in praise of him and loving to be honored even if he does not deserve that.”
Ibn Aboo Zayd said:
“My father said to me: ‘My son, cling to the intelligent people and sit with them; and avoid the foolish people. For I have never sat with a fool and then departed except that I found deficiency in my intellect afterwards.'”
“Khaleel ibn Ahmad said:
“The people are of four types:
1. A man who knows, and knows that he knows. This is the scholar, so take from him.
2. A man who knows, but doesn’t know that he knows. This one has forgotten, so remind him.
3. A man who doesn’t know, and knows that he doesn’t know. This one is a student, so teach him.
4. A man who doesn’t know, and doesn’t know that he doesn’t know. This one is an idiot, so reject him.”
Bishr ibn Al-Haarith said: “To look at an idiot burns the eyes.”
They have placed your corpse in the sand as a banner which awakens the people of the valley day and night.
Woe to them (the kuffar)
For they have lit a lantern from blood that will continue to instill anger in future generations
The flames of battle did not leave his bones worn out
Nor did the Spears take from him a trace of blood.
He was not left like the bones of an eagle or the remnants of a lion
To be forgotten blowing in the wind like floating particles.
A brother of war steeds he would fight on horseback
And on it he would oversee the battle.
A knight of the deserts, he would attack fearlessly.
Homosexuals fly out into the public eye showing off their filth demanding respect as if they have accomplished a great achievement. Their celebrations have turned into annual parades across the globe attracting hundreds of more insane people to this disgusting movement
Things didn’t stopped there, with the shaytan, the sky is the limit and every step he makes one take only takes them deeper into shame and humiliation. From this movement emerged whats even nastier. There really is no limit for these animals, as if sleeping with the same sex was not enough now they change their sex to become “who they thought they really were”. Living a lawless and religionless life, many don’t know who they are and resort to insane alternatives like surgical procedures costings hundreds of thousands of dollars to change who they are. From that they feel “real” and finally have a purpose in this life. Men wearing women clothing exposing their private parts while women disengage in the role they are most qualified for to be in what they consider “equal”.
Again it didn’t stopped there. But the shaytan is tireless and his engine doesn’t stop. These filthy creatures have decided to leave their footprint and poison the mind of the young. There are cases of men performing multiple surgeries to replace the proper organs in themselves to have children. Biologically altering the body to give birth and then breastfeeding the child. 2 men can now adopt and raise children. How dare them deprive a child of the irreplaceable love and nurturing that only a mother can provide. Is this what their life has been reduced to? Superficial accomplishments of “being me” after hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on medical procedures because one can not identify his purpose in life.
The last point sums up, the “progress” and the “democracy” of the west. In America, the Arthur Ashe courage award is rewarded every year to someone who as the title says showed some courage. Courage is recognized regardless of the differences people have among each other in religion, gender, or race, courage is courage. America has a population of 330 million so lets examine the persons of courage in 2014 and 2015 just to get an idea of the direction this sick society is heading. 2014 award went to a college football player with extremely mediocre skills BUT was gay and the this qualified him for the reward; 2015 even worse. In 2015 the award was given to a celebrity male who has switched to female well above the age of 60 years old.
Is this the most courageous member of the “home of the brave, the so called super power of this era”.
When Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah was jailed towards the end of his life. He started using his time exclusively to ponder 🤔 on the book of Allah. Him and his brother Zayn al-Dīn ‘Abd al-Raḥmān (who was jailed with him) read the Quran together 80 times and they were well on their way to completing their 81st read of the Quran.
However, when they completed Sura al-Qamar, Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah passed away. May Allah have His mercy on him. Ponder the meanings of the last few verses Allah allowed Ibn Taymiyyah recite:
Surah al-Qamar starts with: «The hour has drawn near and the moon has split.» and it finishes with the following verses (54-55): «Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and rivers. In the station of honor with a most Powerful King.»

Sykes and Picot created borders for us. They said to us, “Jordon ends here at ar-Ramtha, and Syria begins after ar-Ramtha, and Jordon begins at al-Mudawwarah, and the Saudi state begins after Harat Ammar. And Kuwait? here it is, the city of Kuwait, the ‘state’ of Kuwait. And the state of Qatar is a single city. And so is the state of Bahrain. And Lebanon? here it is, the size of a coin. That’s the state of Lebanon. And here is Syria. Listen, this is your land and your birthplace, and love of one’s homeland is part of faith.” And so on…And we have begun to think in an Islamic way which is in truth not an Islamic way, but rather, a territorial way of thinking daubed with Islam.
The Jordanian in ar-Ramtha sees the resident of Dara’a [across the border in Syria] being slaughtered in front of him by the Nusayrites, yet he doesn’t even bat an eyelid, move a muscle, or take an extra heartbeat; nor is he prepared to open the borders. Why? Because Islam ends at ar-Ramtha, and he has nothing to do with Islam in Dara’a. But when Jordanian in al-‘Aqaba winces in pain, you’ll find the same person [from ar-Ramtha] up in arms, although the distance between al-‘Aqaba and ar-Ramtha is more than 600 kilometres, while the distance between al-Ramtha and Dara’a is less than 6 kilometres. This isn’t an islamic attitude; this isn’t the attitude of “This Ummah of yours is one Ummah, and I am your Lord, so worship Me.”[Quran 21:92]

“So as for the Khawarij, the Ulama have explained that they are the ones who rebel against the True Imam, and they openly disobey him, and they conspire against him – so where is this True Imam today, with regards to whom we could label anyone who rebels against him as a “Khariji”? Where is the Ali ibn Abi Talib of today?And if we are Khawarij, then who are you (oh regimes and oh royal scholars)? Are you Ali and his companions?!
And did Ali take the laws of his governance from the legislation of the Persians and the Romans?! Did he govern according to “socialism” and “democracy”? Or was he a caller to “nationalism” and “social peace”? Or was Ali an ally and supporter of the Jews and Beijing? Or was Ali forsaking the Hudud of Allāh, and implementing punishments for which Allāh did not send down any permission? Or can it be said that Ali was possibly calling towards the establishment of the Khilafah, a crime which cannot be forgiven?! Or was Ali waging war against chastity and purity, calling for women’s “liberation” and for her to travel freely? Or was Ali one of those who have split the Qurʼan into parts? Those who say: “No Islam in politics, and no politics in Islam”?
And pardoned is Imam Ali – may Allāh dignify his face – he was not like that at all. Rather, he was of the most eager to implement the Judgments of Allāh, and governing with the Book of Allāh, and the Sunnah of His Messenger ﷺ. So no doubt, that the one who rebels against this Just Imam, he is truly a Khariji.
As for someone who perpetrates all of these falsehoods which we have just mentioned – then the one who rebels against such a ruler is not a Khariji; rather, he is a Muslim, a Mu’min, a Muttaqi.”
