Attainting True Belief

Anas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “No one of you shall become a true believer until he desires for his brother what he desires for himself.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]


We learn a great lesson from this Hadith. When a Muslim likes the same thing for another Muslim which he does for himself, then he will be obviously expressing goodwill to his fellow Muslims. When Muslims adopt this attitude at the community level, no Muslim will be an enemy of the other. In fact, each Muslim would then be a well-wisher and helper of other Muslims.

May Allah enable us to adopt this attitude.

And Allah Knows Best!
