    As-Salaam alaikum,
    I wish to remind you/us to always be scrupulous in our affairs. Righteousness in the deen depends on it as the great Imam, Sidi al-Hasan al-Basri, Rahimahullah, said:--

    "Ascend to Allah by means of your himma since what was going to happen has happened
    and what is decreed will certainly come about. By Allah, turning to creation is hidden
    shirk. The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "If someone devotes himself to
    Allah, Allah will spare him every burden and provide for him from where he does not
    reckon." Prefer Allah to all things since things are by their nature transitory and
    vanishing. 'All things are passing except His Face." (27:88)

    Keep your tongues still except in Zikrullah. The disasters of the tongue are numerous. A man may speak one word which he finds inconsequential, but because of it fall into the fire of Jahannam for 70 years, as is related. All words which are not Zikr are a distraction and there is no hour in which a person does not remember Allah, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, which will not be a regret for him on the Day of Rising, as is related.

    So, beware of sitting with the people of this world and socializing with except out of legal necessity. The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "Do not sit with the dead or your hearts will die." He was asked: "Who are the dead, O Messenger of Allah?" He answered: "Those who love this world and desire it." Allah, Jallah Jalalahu, said: "So turn away from him who turns away from Our Remembrance and desires nothing but the life of this world." (53:29).
