Muslims are brothers and sisters

Updated on March 25, 2012

Assalamu Alaykum. Today, I would like to talk about the hatred I noticed on some facebook pages between Muslims, may Allah protect us. I think Muslims are more mature than accepting to be guided by people who want Fitnah, by anger, and by Shaytan. Insults, Qadhf (one of the greater sins), Namimah and bad words, all what Islam forbids us to do is done on these pages.

Muslims, we are one Ummah and what Islam united will never be separated. It is sorrowful to see Muslims fighting against each other and insulting each other while we are not allowed even to insult disbelievers

"And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they used to do." Al-An'am 108

How will it be about Muslims then? They insult even each other parents while in al-Saheehayn it is narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “One of the major sins is a man insulting his parents.” It was said, “O Messenger of Allah, do people really insult their parents?” He said, “Yes, a man insults another man’s father so he insults his father, or he insults another man's mother so he insults his mother.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5973; Muslim, 130.

Remember, everything you do is seen by Allah and you do it in His presence. So if a Muslim doesn't respect his Muslim brother, that he respects his Lord then. Fear Allah brothers and sisters and know that you'll be meeting him one day.

"Fear Allah" is the most word I have been repeating in last few days and what surprised me is that no one feared Him and stopped the Fitnah he was participating in. If Allah's fear left Muslims hearts what stays more for us to proclaim being Muslims?

Allah disrespected, Muslims disrespected by their own brothers and sisters on Friday. May Allah guide us.

Remember, every word of you toward any one Muslim or non-Muslims will be counted whether with your good or bad deeds, it is upon you, choose how you want your deeds' balance to be.

“The Mu’minoon are but a single Brotherhood.” (The Holy Qur’an, 49:10)

When closing my eyes in the hard times, I remember the American new reverted who said "I want to learn Russian because I know I have brothers and sisters in Russia who need to learn about Islam and whom I need to learn from" Mashaa Allah. In times like this, I really realize that Islam is greater than what words may describe. I realize that somewhere in the world someone is praying for me without even knowing me "May Allah forgive my sins and all the sins of Muslimin. May Allah protect me and my brothers in Islam. May Allah open the doors of His mercy for me and for my brothers and sisters...." And I am sure his prayer will reach me. In every minute someone will be praying for me just by saying "Ameen Ajma'in (meaning, Ameen for all of us)". Being in grave I know well even if my relatives will forget to do Dua for me I will be receiving Dua from my brother and sisters "Allahumma irham mawtana wa mawta al-muslimin" (Oh Allah be Merciful with our deads and the deads of Muslims)

"None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." (Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 12)

Please brothers and sisters, may Allah reward you Jannah, think before acting, and remember, Allah is seeing you in every step you choose to do. So respect Him and fear His punishment.

      Thank you for this beautiful hub with a beautiful message. Your hub was nominated for the hubnugget contest, and it was well deserved! It just saddens me to see Muslims of today insulting each other and ridiculing each other instead of uniting at a time where it is needed most. At the bottom of it all, we are all humans and we need to all live harmoniously.

      Hello forall, we are one - Muslims and non-Muslims. Hatred seems to be present in all kinds of religions and throwing insults are often seen. I believe with all my heart that respect, healing, caring, loving, honoring others can be done when you are able to have this within you. One cannot give what one doesn't have. I pray that you continue to let your light shine and allow compassion to ignite unity and oneness and respect. We may not be able to solve everything at once but hearts and lives do change. As much as there is hatred, there is much love as well. Peace and love to you.

      Yes, I'm agree. But if there is muslim wrong we must to say them it's wrong. Not make brothers and sisters with blind eyes. We must to think, not just say YES, its stupid muslim, without mind.

      Your Hub is a tremendous anti-dote to ignorance. Muslems have suffered ingnorance much like Christianity did during the Spanish inqusition. The bottom line is that no matter what beliefs we have, we are all part of the One Human Family, energized by the One God Source Energy. Many Blessings for writing this HUb.

      The message you wrote about is identical to the message written in the Bible, and it is so true. We need to respect Allah, God and respect each other as well. Only when this begins happening will we begin understanding each other, even if we don't agree with each other.

      Congratulations on your Hubnugget nomination and thank you for this.

      Thanks for your kind and encouraging comments. You made me speechless. In Shaa Allah there will be more humanism in the world, more respect, more love and understanding and peace of course. Being humans, we should be different somehow but what makes this diversity wonderful is to be able to love each other and to respect each other though our differences. Thanks for voting up, the mails and for following me. May Allah bless you all.
