"Verily, Allâh has angels who seek out the circles of remembrance [of Allâh], so be careful who you sit with; make sure it is NOT with an adherent of bid’ah, for Allâh does not look at them. And the sign of nifâq (hypocrisy in faith) is that a man mingles with an adherent of bid’ah."
Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah Al-Kubrâ 1:460

Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd (rahimahullaah) reported:
The believer speaks little & does a lot, whereas the hypocrite (Munâfiq) speaks a lot & does little. When the believer speaks, it is with wisdom, when he is silent, it is in deep thought, when he sees, he takes lessons, & when he acts, it is a cure. If this is the way you are, then you are in the constant worship [of your Lord.]
Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 8:98.
