Who should we listen to?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Baqir (AS) who said: Follow the one who makes you cry whilst he/she wants the best for you, and do not follow the one who makes you laugh but is deceiving you. When you go to God you, then you will find out the realities of each other’s hearts [1]. This narration emphasizes the need to listen and accept the words of the qualified person who has your interests in mind, although sometimes those words may seem bitter to you. And at the same time warns about those who want to deceive you by talking sweetly and you love to listen to them, but their words have no benefits to you, and these types of people must be avoided.
