Remaining Secluded From The People (Who Are Of No Benefit)

Sufyaan Ath-Thawree said:

“You should take to being unknown, for indeed this is the age to remain unknown. And take to remaining aloof (at a distance) and secluded, and associating little with the people, because when the people used to meet, some of them would benefit the others. But as for today, then that has gone, and in our view, salvation lies in abandoning them.”

[Al-Hilyah, by Aboo Nu’aym, 6/376]
