The poet said, âDo not ask about a man, but ask about his companion, because every person guides himself by his companionâ. [Al-Ibaanah 2/439] Ibn Masâood said, âIndeed, a person walks along & accompanies the one whom he loves & who is like himâ. [Al-Ibaanah 2/476] Abu Dardaa said, âIt is from the Fiqh (understanding of a person) that he (chooses) those whom he walks with, whom he enters upon (visits) & whom he sits withâ. [Al-Ibaanah 2/477] Al-Aâmash said, âThe Salaf did not used to ask anything more about a person after having asked three affairs: Who he walks with, who he enters upon (visits) & who he associates with amongst the peopleâ. [al-Ibaanah 2/478] Abdullah Ibn Masâood said, âMake consideration of the (regions of the) earth by the names given to them & make consideration of a person by his companionâ. [al-Ibaanah 2/479] Muâaadh Bin Muâaadh said to Yahyah Bin Saâeed, O Abu Saâeed! A person may hide his viewpoint from us, but will not be able to hide that in his son, or his friend or in one whom he sits withâ. [Al-Ibaanah 2/437] Translated by Spubs
