Teachings of the Prophet on The Conduct of the Believers With One Another

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The relationship of the believer with another believer is like (the bricks of) a building, each strengthens the other.” He (PBUH) illustrated this by interlacing the fingers of both his hands.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Whoever enters our mosque or passes through our market with arrows with him, he should hold them by their heads (the sharp part) lest it should injure any of the believers”. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary: In the time of the Prophet believers used to carry arrows as weapons.  He instructed them to carry them carefully.  It would equivalent to have the guns put on safety for the safety of others.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

The Prophet (PBUH) kissed his grandson in the presence of a man named Al-Aqra` bin Habis. Thereupon he remarked: “I have ten children and I have never kissed any one of them.” Messenger of Allah (PBUH) looked at him and said, “He who does not show mercy to others will not be shown mercy”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Some bedouins came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and asked: “Do you kiss your children?” He said, “Yes”. They then said: “By Allah, we do not kiss them.” The Prophet (PBUH) replied, “I cannot help you if Allah has snatched kindness from your hearts”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “He who is not merciful to people Allah will not be merciful to him.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “I stand up to lead prayers with the intention of prolonging it. Then I hear the crying of an infant and I shorten the Salat lest I should make it burdensome for his mother”.
[Al-Bukhari]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim. So he should not oppress him… Whoever fulfills the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever removes the troubles of his brother, Allah will remove one of his troubles on the Day of judgement; and whoever covers up the fault of a believer, Allah will cover up his fault on the Day of Judgement”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “A Muslim is a brother to a Muslim. He should neither deceive him nor lie to him, nor leave him without assistance. Everything belonging to a Muslim is inviolable for a Muslim; his honour, his blood and property. Piety is here (and he pointed out to his heart thrice). It is enough for a Muslim to commit evil by despising his Muslim brother.”
[At-Tirmidhi].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices by overbidding against one another; do not hate one another; do not harbour malice against one another; and do not enter into commercial transaction when others have entered into that (transaction); but be you, O slaves of Allah, as brothers. A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim; he neither oppresses him nor does he look down upon him, nor does he humiliate him. Piety is here, (and he pointed to his heart three times). It is enough evil for a Muslim to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. All things of a Muslim are inviolable for his brother-in-faith: his blood, his property and his honour”.
[Muslim]

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “No one of you shall become a true believer until he desires for his brother what he desires for himself”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or is oppressed”. A man enquired: “O Messenger of Allah! I help him when he is oppressed, but how can I help him when he is an oppressor?” He (PBUH) said, “You can keep him from committing oppression. That will be your help to him”.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “A believer owes another believer five rights: responding to greetings, visiting him in illness, following his funeral, accepting his invitation, and saying `Yarhamuk-Allah (May Allah have mercy on you),’ when he says `Al-hamdu lillah (Praise be to Allah)’ after sneezing”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

The Prophet (PBUH) commanded us to observe seven things and forbade us seven. He ordered us to visit the sick; to follow funeral processions; to respond to a sneezer with `Yarhamuk-Allah (May Allah have mercy on you)’ when he says `Al-hamdu lillah (Praise be to Allah),’ to help the oppressed and to help others to fulfill their oaths, to accept invitation and to promote greeting. He forbade us to wear gold rings, to drink in silver utensils, to use Mayathir (silk carpets placed on saddles), to wear Al-Qassiy (a kind of silk cloth) to wear fine silk brocade.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary:  It is customary to say, “God bless you” in Islam the believer says “All Praise is for Allah” and the listener responds by saying “May Allah have mercy on you”
