Say No to Negative People
The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:
Some people never [fail to have] pessimism in the things they say; frustration and defeat, in the words they use; dread, about the things they anticipate.
Sitting with [such people] brings upon sickness in the heart. If you were to come to [someone like that] in a sad state, you’d leave feeling very depressed. And if you were to come to him feeling happy about things, you’d go back worried and distressed.
Meeting [a person like that] leaves you with bad thoughts about everything and feelings of hatred towards life. He doesn’t know [anything about] the language of optimism, motivation, hope, or encouragement.
Long, sour, frowning face, eyebrows drawn together–getting away from him is gain, while getting near to him is loss.

البعض لا يخلو كلامه من تشاؤم
وعباراته من إحباط
وتوقعاته من تخوّف
مجالسته ممرضة للقلب
إن جئته حزينا خرجت مكروبا
وإن جئته سعيدا عدت مهموما
لقاؤه يورثك إساءة الظن بكل شيء،
لا يعرف لغة التفاؤل، والتحفيز، والاستبشار.
عبوس الوجه، مقطب الحاجبين.
مفارقته مغنم، وقربه مغرم
