ABU HURAIRAH REPORTED THE PROPHETﷺ AS SAYING:

THE SPIRITS ARE IN MARSHALLED HOSTS; THOSE WHO KNOW ONE ANOTHER WILL BE FRIENDLY, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT, WILL KEEP APART.
حَدَّثَنَا هَارُونُ بْنُ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَبِي الزَّرْقَاءِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرٌ، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ بُرْقَانَ - عَنْ يَزِيدَ، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ الأَصَمِّ - عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، يَرْفَعُهُ قَالَ ‏
"‏ الأَرْوَاحُ جُنُودٌ مُجَنَّدَةٌ فَمَا تَعَارَفَ مِنْهَا ائْتَلَفَ وَمَا تَنَاكَرَ مِنْهَا اخْتَلَفَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
