The Islamic society

The Islamic society is ideally built upon the foundation of brotherhood. The Muslims are like a single man. If the eye is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted. If the head is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted.

“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.”

―Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Reference: al-Bukhari 6065

“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.”

―Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Reference: Sahih Muslim 2586a

By the Mercy of Allah, you (Muhammad) deal with them gently. Had you been cruel or hard-hearted, they would have certainly abandoned you. So pardon them, ask Allah’s forgiveness for them, and consult with them in matters. Once you make a decision, put your trust in Allah. Surely Allah loves those who trust in Him.

— Qur’an 3:159

It is Allah who brought you out of your mothers’ wombs knowing nothing, and gave you hearing and sight and hearts. ―Quran 16:78 My Twitter @fatimakarimms
