Seek Good Friends

Seek Good Friends 

Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught us that your company contributes tremendously to the very course your life will take - he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Man is on the religion of his friend, so let every one of you examine whom he befriends."[Jami at-Tirmidhi 2378

Try to surround yourself with good people who will remind you of the sunnah. It’s good to be around those who verbally remind you, but it’s even better to be around those who actively practice the sunnah themselves. Humans are imitative creatures by nature, so merely being in the company of such good influences is bound to inspire you to follow their example. 

May Allah make us amongst the ones who actively practice the sunnah themselves. Aameen.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) stated that: It is absolutely forbidden to show preference to some of one’s children over others,  and that it is obligatory to treat them all equally, males and females alike, in accordance with their shares of inheritance, unless they give permission and are adults of sound mind. 
(al-Fataawa al-Jaami’ah li’l-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 3/1115, 1116)
