Hadith of Dhikr: Best of you inspire the remembrance of Allah

Asma’ bint Yazid reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I not tell you about the best of you?” They said, “Of course.” The Prophet said, “Those who, if they are seen, they remind you of Allah. Shall I not tell you about the worst of you?” They said, “Of course.” The Prophet said, “Those who carry gossip and ruin relations between loved ones, seeking misery for the innocent.”
