Excellence of mixing with People and attending their social activities
Imam An-Nawawi says: Remember! Mixing with people in the way I have mentioned earlier is most desirable. This
was the way of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and other Prophets of Allah, the Righteous Caliphs (May Allah be
pleased with them), the followers of the Companions, scholars and pious people. The majority of the followers of
the Companions and their followers adopted it. Imam Ash-Sha-fi`i, Imam Ahmad and the majority of other jurists
followed it.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety).'' (
The Quranic Verses on the subject are many and well-known.
