GLAD TIDINGS FOR A PERSON WHOSE
COMPANION IS RIGHTEOUS
Yazīd al-Raqqāshī said,
"It has reached me that when the dead person is placed in his grave his deeds will surround him, and then Allāh will make them speak. They will say: 'O slave who is alone in his grave! Your family and loves ones have been cut off from you, and nothing will stay with you except us!'"
Then Yazīd wept and said,
"Glad tidings for a person whose companion (and social circle) is righteous, and woe to the one whose companion (and social circle) is a destruction upon him."
