The hadeeth informs us that a person will be raised with those whom he loves. Therefore, it is imperative that our deepest love and true loyalty be for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). Their ways should find a special place in our hearts and should be preferred over all others. The styles and fashions of the West actually distance us away from the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and take us closer to the Kuffaar. A distinguishing feature between us and the Kuffaar is our dress code. This is our identity and cannot be compromised at any cost. Although it may seem insignificant to some people, such as wearing the topee, however we should never ever discard it.
