Wary of meetings that caused skepticism

The Imam was truly peerless when it came to working hard to the extent that I remember and have heard from his friend and classmate of the time of his youth and seminary days that he never passed his time in useless pursuits or as is well known among seminary students in “informal chat sessions of the seminary students” that often involved gossip and disparaging a believer and enduring laughter that killed the spirit and made one to become distanced from God. Rather, if at all he would be compelled to attend such sessions, he would either intensely put a stop to any dialogue that might lead to a gossip or slandering of a pious believer and such matters or would immediately leave that session.
