Maintaining close ties with the scholars
And when Allaah accepts [a good deed] from His worshiper, He then blesses hm with obedience [to Him], and diverts him [away] from [falling into] sin.
Likewise, the one who is elderly does not wait except for death; so how repulsive of him [if he were] to persist upon falling into sin [while death beckons].
What is the ruling if I see someone committing a sin, and I don’t advise him because he knows the ruling?
A lack of fear [of Allaah] is due to a lack of remorse in the heart [at transgressing against Allaah], just as a house which has not been lived in will deteriorate.
