On Friendship with the Pious

لا تُصَاحِبْ إِلاَّ مُؤْمِناً وَلاَ يَأْكُلْ طَعَامَكَ إِلاَّ تَقِيٌ

You should not accompany but believers, and none save the pious should eat your food.

—The Prophet Muhammad (S)

[Sunan al-Tirmidhi, Sunan Abi Daud, authenticated by Ibn Hibban, al-Mundhiri and al-Albani]
