The influence of the others on a human being


SHAFAQNA – There is no doubt that human beings are influenced by those who they associate with, as the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: Human being is in his/her friend’s religion, therefore look who you are friend with [1]. Imam Jawad (AS) narrated from the Prophet (PBUH) who said: Test people with their friends, because a human being will make friend with someone whose behaviour is favourable to him/her [2].
