Pearls of Wisdom: No.50

“Food for the Soul”

 

SUBJECT:  BROTHERHOOD

 

 Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

"The Believers are but a single Brotherhood." (Qur’an 49:10)

 

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:

"A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not oppress him, nor does he leave him at the mercy of others."  (Hadith - Muslim)

 

Do not hate each other, do not envy each other, do not turn away from each other, but rather be servants of Allah as brothers. It is not lawful for a Muslim to boycott his brother for more than three days.”(Hadith–Bukhari )

 

Note: Brotherhood in Islam is a comprehensive concept that is based upon good character with others, treating others the way we want to be treated, and uniting together upon common values. It has three levels of degree: religion, family, and humanity. Each of these levels has a set of rights and duties that a Muslim must uphold with others. The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.” (Hadith Bukhari)
