Hudhaifah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:
"Do not let yourselves be 'yes-men', saying: 'If the people are good then we will be good, and if they are wrong then we will be wrong.'Rather, make up your own minds, if the people are good then you are good, and if they are evil, then do not behave unjustly."
Man is a moving being by will, according to the definition of many philosophers.
The meaning of this definition is that it is the will that distinguishes man from the animals. If one is robbed of will, he will turn to be a person with no identity. Then he moves as the animal moves, whereas he does not know what to do? Why did he do so? How did he do so?.
He is lead by his inclination, not by his mind, and is dragged behind his desires and pleasures without awareness or restriction to prevent him from the misguidance.
The yes-man is he who has no opinion and no determination, he follows the opinions of anyone and may not stick to one opinion.
The believer may not ever be in this state. He is wise enough to control his emotions and restrains himself whenever he feels that it is about to deviate from the path of Allah.
The true believer is the one whose inclination is according to the rules of Islam, his goal is to make this worldly life a farm to plant for the Hereafter, to take the Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah as the criteria according to which he estimates all the matters, his ultimate aspiration is to please Allah; to seek his satisfaction when dealing with people regardless of whether people do good for him or not. Rather, he does good for everyone out of expressing thanks for the blessings of Allah.
The believer is a role model for people in his words and deeds, he is an example to be followed in terms of the noble behaviors which distinguishes him among people along with the religious knowledge.
It is from this commandment that we learn how to restrain the soul, deter it from committing evil, and push it to the good places and the paths of righteousness so that acting righteously becomes its habit in all the conditions.
