A Sign of Imaani Weakness in the Ummah

عن عبد الله بن بسر رضي الله عنه قال لقد سمعت حديثا منذ زمان إذا كنت في قوم عشرين رجلا أو أقل أو أكثر فتصفحت وجوههم فلم تر فيهم رجلا يهاب في الله عز و جل فاعلم أن الأمر قد رق رواه أحمد والطبراني في الكبير وإسناده حسن (الترغيب والترهيب 1/151)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Busr (Radhiyallahu Anhu) (while addressing some people) mentioned: “Some time ago I heard the following Hadith (of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), ‘When you are in a group of people, who number twenty, or more or less, and you examine their faces (understanding them to be people of Deen), and you do not see any person among them who is being respected (despite his piety and knowledge), then know well that the condition (of the people’s Imaan and Deen) has weakened.’”
