Week Seven: Avoid Harming Others

Narrated Abdullah bin Amr: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden."

- Source: Sahih Bukhari

Narrated Abu Musa: Some people asked Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), "Whose Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?" He replied, "One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands."

- Source: Sahih Bukhari

In these two hadiths, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) is stating that a good Muslim is one who avoids harming their Muslim brother/sister with their tongue and hands. Meaning, in Islam, we need to avoid saying offensive names to others (Muslim or not). We need to avoid yelling and being angry at others. We need to avoid backbiting others. And not only do we need to avoid harming others with our words but also with our hands. Punching, hitting, using the bad word finger (middle finger), etc.

We have all made these mistakes more than once. This is a reminder to me first and then to everyone else. May Allah make it easy for us to refrain from harming others in any way. He is the most forgiving so when we make a mistake, repent to Him. Ask Him for forgiveness. Ask those who you've wronged for forgiveness. Say Astaghfirullah and follow up your sin with a good deed.
