On Seclusion

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

ʿUmar, may Allāh be pleased with him, said: “Take a hold of your share of seclusion.”

I say [with regard to this]: seclusion helps you to take account of yourself, to leave mixing with those who put people to trial [in their religion], and to get away from things that make [you] weak.

As for that [kind of] seclusion that gets you away from what’s good and from the people of the Truth, then its harm is proven.

And a believer, in all of that, is his own doctor.
