A good friend and a bad friend are like a perfume-seller and a blacksmith

Standard

The Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم Salla llahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam) said:

“A good friend and a bad friend are like a perfume-seller and a blacksmith: The perfume-seller might give you some perfume as a gift, or you might buy some from him, or at least you might smell its fragrance. As for the blacksmith, he might singe your clothes, and at the very least you will breathe in the fumes of the furnace.”

(Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Hadith 314)

“He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah.”
[The Holy Qur’aan 4:80]
