عَنْ أَنَسٍرَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُعَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ
وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَا يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى يُحِبَّ لِأَخِيهِ مَا يُحِبُّ
Anas Bin Maalik (رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ) has narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: ‘None you can have complete Imaan until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.’
(Narrated by Imam Bukhaari
Hadith# 13, Page 10, Publisher Altaaf and sons’)
In this narration we can clearly see the importance of loving and respecting our Muslim brothers and sisters. In this regard, the scholars have mentioned that the absence of loving and wanting good for our Muslim brothers, is a clear sign of our Iman being deficient.
The lives of the Sahabas show a great deal of self sacrifice for their emigrating brothers. No better example can be drawn than the sacrifice of love for their brothers what they loved for themselves and selflessness showed by the Ansaar Sahabas who gave half of whatever they possessed to their brethrens who migrated from Makkah to Madinah.
This quality of loving the best for our brothers what we love for ourselves ultimately rids the despicable qualities of envy, jealousy and miserliness in one’s self and in return we are blessed with such praiseworthy qualities like selflessness, humbleness and always looking in the good of people which will ultimately free ourselves from being attached to this temporary world.
