عن أبي موسى الأشعري -رضي الله عنه- مرفوعًا: «إنما مَثَلُ الجَلِيسِ الصالحِ وجَلِيسِ السُّوءِ، كَحَامِلِ المِسْكِ، ونَافِخِ الكِيرِ، فَحَامِلُ المِسْكِ: إما أنْ يُحْذِيَكَ، وإما أنْ تَبْتَاعَ منه، وإما أن تجد منه رِيحًا طيبةً، ونَافِخُ الكِيرِ: إما أن يحرق ثيابك، وإما أن تجد منه رِيحًا مُنْتِنَةً».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

Abu Musa al-Ash‘ari, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, said: "The example of the righteous companion and the evil companion is like that of the musk-seller and the one who blows the bellows (a blacksmith). As for the musk-seller, he will either give you some as a present, or you will buy some from him, or you will just receive a good smell from him. Whereas the one blowing the bellows will either burn your clothes, or you will receive a nasty smell from him.”

Explanation

In this Hadith, our Messenger, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, urges the Muslim to necessarily choose good companionship, informing that the example of the righteous companion is like that of the musk-seller; who will either give you some of it free of charge, or you will buy some from him, or you will just get a good smell from him. Regarding the evil companion, he is as the one blowing bellows; who will either burn your clothes by the flying sparks of fire, or you will get a bad smell from him.
