As Muslims, our confidence is not finished, and our love is not adequate, until we have assembled the solid obligations of Islamic brotherhood among ourselves. This is every now and again overlooked by numerous Muslims. and these bonds are broken over minor question and contentions. This article examines the significance of Islamic brotherhood in Islam, with proof from the Quran, Sunnah and the Seerah.
“O, mankind! Surely we have created you of a male and female and make you tribes and families that you know each other, surely the noblest among you unto Allah is one who fears him .Lo! Allah is Knower Aware.” Al-Hujurat [49.13]
Sisterhood between Muslim Sisters:
A standout among the most critical mainstays of our dealings with others, is the idea of Islamic brotherhood in Islam. This idea is accentuated in the Quran and in the Sunnah, and through the reasonable activities of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). This brotherhood by Islam places upon us certain rights and obligations that we must satisfy towards our Muslim siblings. Before we continue any further, it must be clarified to anybody perusing this that in spite of the fact that we utilize the expression “Islamic brotherhood.” in this article, it is intended to envelop both sexual orientations, and to incorporate sisterhood between Muslim sisters too.
“And adhere to the Bond of Allah, together, and do not be divided. And remember the Favor of Allah that was bestowed upon you: how you were enemies, and how He united your hearts, so that by His Favor you became brothers. And how He saved you from the Pit of Fire when you were on the brink of it. And so Allah makes plain to you His verses, in order that you will be guided.” (Al-Imran, 103).
This verse contains numerous vital lessons that are important to our discourse. Above all else comes the order from Allah (swt) for the adherents to stick nearly to the “Obligation of Allah” together and not to be separated. This “Obligation of Allah” is the religion of Islam, and the promise that Allah (swt) has taken upon the adherents, that they are siblings and that they are to cherish each other. It is this Islamic brotherhood, and this solidarity between the devotees.
There are numerous different verses in the Quran that emphasize this message of how vital it is for Muslims to be united, to be siblings, companions, associates and supporters of one another. and to maintain a strategic distance from disunity and division among one another. The accentuation on this idea in the Quran indicates how imperative this issue is in the perspective of Allah (swt).
Prophet (SAW) said:
“The most beloved people to Allah (swt) are those who help and benefit others the most, and the most beloved actions to Allah (swt), is pleasure and happiness that you cause to enter the heart of a Muslim, or to solve one of his problems, or to pay off his debt, or to prevent him from being hungry, and working to help my Muslim brother is more beloved to me than making I’tikaf in this masjid for a month, and whoever controls his anger, Allah will conceal his faults, and whoever controls his ill feelings, Allah (swt) will fill his heart with contentment on the day of Judgment, and whoever strives to help fulfill a need for his Muslim brother, Allah will make his feet steadfast on the day of Judgment, and bad manners ruin good deeds just like vinegar ruins honey.” (Sheikh Al-Albani said it is a sound hadith)
Maybe, at no other time in history has the Ummah been so unapproachable to the sufferings of their Muslim brethren as they are today. Blameless Muslims, feeble ladies and kids are being tormented, executed and aggrieved, all inclusive. The Ummah is careless in regards to the throbs of their distress and uneasiness.
As Islamic brotherhood in Islam, we have to make prompt move, to stop the genocide of Muslims. We ought to take up guarded positions against the antagonistic tribes by supporting one another and it is a thing which fits for individuals of confidence. In opposite, we encourages the ambush of the foe and have opened the entryways for them to infiltrate the fold of Islam by demanding one-sided partisanship and threatening spite. These have lessened our quality to such an extent, to the point that we can be crushed by the smallest power. It is apparent that if two champions are battling with one another, even a kid can beat them. In the event that two mountains are adjusted in the scales, even little stone can irritate their balance, making one ascent and the other to fall.
