Prioritizing the Right People

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

Don’t pay a huge amount of attention to a person [who’s just] temporary, a casual passerby. Be good in your dealings with him because that’s your character.

But don’t let yourself get distracted from people close to you in your life: your spouse, your children, those with ties of blood to you.

They’re the ones who worry a lot about your situation, who get anxious over you many a time, and who delight at your successes, again and again.
