Islam teaches that men should belong and share with one another in order to maximise good among us, for us and by us. Allah, the Creator of mankind stated that: “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other…” Qur’an 49:13

“Thy Lord hath decree that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour.” Qur’an 17:23

Next of kin
Narrated Anas bin Malik (r.a): Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said, “Whoever loves that he be granted more wealth and that his lease of life be prolonged then he should keep good relations with his kith and kin.” Bukhari Collection

Narrated Abu Shuraih (r.a): The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! It was said, “Who is that, O Allah’s Apostle?” He said, “That person whose neighbour does not feel safe from his evil.” Bukhari Collection

Fellow believers
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (r.a): The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said, “Whoever amongst you sees anything objectionable, let him change it with his hand, if he is not able, then with his tongue, and if he is not even able to do so, then with his heart, and the latter is the weakest form of faith.” Muslim Collection

Narrated Al-Aswad (r.a): I asked Aisha what did the Prophet (S.A.W) used to do at home? She replied, “He used to keep himself busy serving his family and when it was the time for prayer, he would get up for prayer.” Bukhari Collection
