Amr Bin Qais Al-Malaaee رحمه الله said: “Do not associate with a man of deviation, for he will make your heart crooked.”

* Ibraaheem Nakh’i رحمه الله said: “Do not sit with the people of ahwaa,for verily, association with them eliminates the Noor of Imaan from the heart, it despoils the beauty of the face and it generates malice in the hearts of the Mu’mineen.

* Ismaaeel Bin Ubaidullah رحمه الله said: “Do not sit with a man of bid’ah, for he will cause your heart to be diseased.”

* Fudhail Bin Iyaadh said: “He who honours a man of bid’ah, verily he has aided in destroying the Deen. He who smiles with a bid’ati, verily he has considered Allah’s revelation to Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to be insignificant. He who marries his daughter to a bid’ati, has severed his ties with her. He who follows the janaazah of a bid’ati, remains under the Wrath of Allah طائلة until his return.”

The sign of nifaaq (hypocrisy) of a man is that he sits with a man of bid’ah. He who associates with a man of bid’ah, is not granted hikmah(wisdom).

Don’t sit with a man ofbid’ah, for I fear the la’nat(Allah طائلة’ Curse)settling on you. Allah طائلة obliterates the deeds of a person who loves a bid’ati, and Allah طائلة eliminates the Noor of Islam from his heart. It is better to eat with a Yahood and a Nasraani than to eat with a man of bid’ah.

It is not possible for a man of the Sunnah to incline to a bid’ati except if there is nifaaq in him.”
