WHAT’S THE COST OF RESPECT?
Everyone STRUGGLES to ACHIEVE SOMETHING in life. Some whose SPEED, DESTINY and LUCK CORRESPOND get it SOONER than OTHERS. Others keep trying till they make it in life SOMEDAY. RESPECTING and SUPPORTING them in all they STRUGGLE TO DO is PARAMOUNT. The brotherhood of the Muslim community is NOT SIMPLY a VISIBLE and VERBAL BROTHERHOOD – rather, it is a RELATIONSHIP OF RIGHTS upon one another which has REQUIREMENTS and NECESSITIES that must be FULFILLED, thus a Muslim must NOT MAKE FUN of one another hence they are NOT PERMITTED to HURT the FEELINGS of each other either. However FUNNY, HORRIBLE, DIRE a state of one is, NEVER TAKE ADVANTAGE and MOCK, DEMEAN, UNDERESTIMATE or even DEGRADE him or her. This is BASIC HUMANITY. You just NEED TO BE a good human being in order to PERFECT in being a BETTER MUSLIM. A good Muslim NEVER TAKES ADVANTAGE of others in their TIMES OF MISFORTUNE. He SUPPORTS, ENCOURAGES, ADVICES and TAKES BY HAND his brother and LEADS him to SUCCESS. That’s respect to his person. LET’S DO IT!
– وعن أبي الدرداء رضي الله عنه، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ”من رد عن عِرض أخيه، رد الله عن وجهه النار يوم القيامة”
.(رواه الترمذي وقال حديث حسن.)
Abud-Darda’ (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who defends the honour of his (Muslim) brother, Allah will secure his face against the Fire on the Day of Resurrection.”
