The pursuit of pious company is extremely important. Every person should review the company he keeps and he should abandon evil company and seek pious company. A poet says:-

"A thousand friends who are not affiliated to Allâh Ta'ala, their lives can be laid down for a lone stranger who is familiar with Allâh Ta'âla."

If you encounter irreligiousness amongst your friends, I don't advocate that you should abandon them. Employ tact and wisdom. For example, tell them: "Brother! from today I've become regular with my Salâh. If you are my friend, then you should also start performing your Salâh regularly."

It is narrated in a Hadith that Hadhrat Jibraeel (Alayhis salâm) was once commanded by Allâh Ta'âla to destroy a certain locality. Jibraeel AS remarked: "O Allâh! therein resides a servant who was never disobedient to You." Allâh Ta'âla declared: "Destroy him with them as well because he used to witness the acts of disobedience but that didn't affect him in the least bit."

The Detrimental Effects of Evil Company is the sense of indifference towards evil builds up whilst the effect of pious company is that a person realizes his shortfalls and secondly, he regards evil to be evil and gradually all evil traits tend to fade away. Therefore, be very particular in pursuing good company.

Nowadays, people themselves don't refrain from evil company nor do they ensure that their children keep away from bad friends. People flock to wherever they wish to and they sit with whom they want to.

After having washed his feet, a person walked bare-footed on some impure place and his foot-prints were visible on that place. His feet will not become impure. However, if due to the wet feet, the ground gets so wet, that some sand or impurity from that ground comes onto the feet; then they will become impure.

Did you hear about the weatherman who, despite his training and sparkling credentials, ran into a terrible unlucky streak?

He became something of a local joke. The town’s newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions. A year later, the paper reported that he’d been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year.

Unable to handle the pressure, the station manager fired him.

So the meteorologist moved far away and applied for another job as a weatherman. When he got to the question on the application about why he had left his last job, he wrote, “The climate didn’t agree with me.”.
