The Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam said:

كما لا يُجتنى من الشوكِ العنبُ كذلك لا ينزلُ الفجارُ منازلَ الأبرارِ ، و هما طريقتان فأيَّهما أخذتُم أدركتُم إليه

Just like grapes are not harvested from thorns, (then) like that the wicked ones will not descend into the station/position of the righteous. Verily it is two paths, (and) whichever of them you take, you will reach it”

[Saheeh Jami no. 4576]

Imam San’aani rahimahullah said:

“As you know…in the hereafter and with Allah… like the inability to harvest grapes from thorns, is the inability for the wicked ones to descend into the position/station of the righteous. Verily their actions are like thorns which nothing is harvested from it except punishment and scourge. In this Hadith is notification that good obtains good and evil obtains evil, not like like how empty ambitions wish for…to Allah”

[Tanweer Sharh Jami’ al-Sagheer]

Imam al-Munaawi rahimahullah said:

“Whoever treads the path of the people of Allah and comes upon them will become from the people of happiness. Whoever treads a path of the wicked ones and comes upon them will become from the people of misery. A person is with those whom he loves and whoever imitates a people is like them . A servant will be resurrected upon what he died upon”

[Fayd ul-Qadir (5/47)]
