Don’t Make Friends with Chameleons

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Al-Ḥāfiẓ Abū Ḥātim Al-Bustī said:

An intelligent person doesn’t make friends with chameleons or treat as brothers people who keep changing what they’re upon; and he won’t show any affection on the outside except as he has it on the inside; and he won’t keep on the inside other than what’s more than what he shows on the outside….

Rawḍah Al-ʿUqalāʾ wa Nuzhah Al-Fuḍalāʾ, p. 197.
