Know Those Who Really Love You

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

The thing that some people say, “[If] someone loves me, he accepts me as I am,” is spread around, and [it’s] wrong. If something is wrong with you, then it’s upon you to change and [upon you] to fix yourself.

And [if] someone [really] loves you, he’s not going to accept you just as you are; instead, he’s going to try to get what’s defective about you fixed and what’s lacking in you, completed. And he’s going to be quick about giving you advice and getting you straightened out.
