Eight mutual rights of a Muslim over another Muslim

 All the teachings of Quran and Hadith make it clear what are the mutual rights of Muslims, how important and necessary they are, and how great a sin it is to neglect to pay them.

Eight mutual rights of a Muslim over another Muslim

Eight mutual rights


عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ : "لا تَحَاسَدُوا، وَلَا تَنَاجَشُوْا، وَلَا تَبَاغَضُوا، وَلَا تَدَابَرُوا، وَلَا يَبعُ بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَيْعٍ بَعْضٍ، وَكُونُوا عِبَادَ اللَّهِ اِخْوَانَا الْمُسْلِمُ أَخُو المُسْلِمُ لَا يَظْلِمُهُ وَلا يَخْذُلْهُ، وَلَا يَكْذِبُهُ وَلَا يَحْقِرُهُ، التَّقْوَى ههُنَا، وَيُشِيرُ إِلَى صَدْرِهِ ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ بِحَسْبِ اِمْرِىءٍ مِنَ الشَّرَانُ يَحْقِرَ أَخَاهُ الْمُسْلِمَ كُلُّ الْمُسْلِمِ عَلَى الْمُسْلِمِ حَرَامٌ، دَمُهُ وَمَالُهُ

وَعِرْضُةُ."(رواه مسلم)

It was narrated from Hazrat Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: "do not be jealous of one another, do not hold grudges against one another, do not turn your back on one another, A person should not trade on another person's trade." and the servants of Allah! Be brothers. A Muslim is a brother of a Muslim, do not oppress him, do not leave him helpless, do not lie to him, do not despise him.Prophet Mohammad Then he pointed to his chest three times and said, "Taqwa is here, here, is here." It is enough for a the person to be evil that he despises his Muslim brother, everything belonging to a Muslim is forbidden for a Muslim, including his blood, wealth and honor.


This hadith is also one of the comprehensive hadiths in which fundamental instructions have been given about the individual, collective, social, economic and moral life. Social evils will end, many disputes will end and Muslims will become grateful to each other.

(1) Jealousy:

Jealousy is one of the moral diseases of man. From the study of the Holy Qur'an, it is known that envy is a characteristic of unbelievers, hypocrites and Jews, and it is forbidden for a Muslim to be jealous. It has come in Hadith Sharif Protect yourself from envy because envy consumes good deeds like fire consumes wood (Abu Dawud). 

(2) Bidding on Tanajesh Bid:

The substance of Tanajish is Najish, which means bidding more than others. It has several forms: One is to make false bids in buying and selling so that unknown and unfamiliar people participate in it and buy things at a high price by being deceived. Presenting the customer while they don't want to buy, many such methods, which involve fraud and deception, are all forbidden. 

(3) Disdain and tact:

It is forbidden for a Muslim to hold grudges against another Muslim. In a hadith it is stated that it is not permissible for a Muslim to break ties with his brother for more than three days, and when these two are in front of each other, they should turn away from each other. He is the one who takes the initiative in greeting and talking (Tirmidhi).

(4) Bargaining on one's bargain:

This means that a person has made a deal or a person is doing business with a merchant, the price terms have been agreed between them, both parties agree or someone has made a deal, and the period of option (authority) and If respite is given, it is against Sharia to mislead the buyer or seller in these situations and spoil the deal.

(5) Brotherhood:

Relations between Muslims should be brotherly, it is stated in the Holy Qur'an

إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ. (الحجرات:١٠)

"Believers are brothers among themselves" 

Therefore, the relationship should be brotherly. Cooperate with each other in times of need. Help each other in difficult times.It is the right of a believer over another believer to protect and respect their honor If a person calls for legitimate help in distress, then hearing his call and helping him according to one's standards is a great reward and along with this is the payment of his right.

(6) Do not insult:

The meaning of this saying is that every person is entitled to respect in his place in general and Muslims in particular, whether he is poor or rich, scholar or ignorant, or special, young or old, each person has his own thoughts and feelings, personality. There is self-respect, therefore every person's honor and respect will be taken into account, in sermons and advice, in transactions, in work, in conversation, the believer will not be humiliated and humiliated, and will not be described without fault. Self respect will be taken care of even in jokes and jokes. Every person will be looked at with good eyes. If someone is younger, it will be assumed that his sins are less than mine. If he is older, it will be assumed that his virtues will be greater than mine. Even if he sees a disbeliever, he should think that maybe God will bless him with Islam and he will die as a Muslim.

 The Prophet ﷺ has described such a person as very bad and deserving of punishment in the Hereafter who disrespects and humiliates others. There is a hadith that once he asked his companions, tell me who is bankrupt. The Companions replied, "We call a person bankrupt who has no dirhams or dinars." The Prophet ﷺ said, "The bankrupt among my Ummah is the one who will be present on the Day of Judgment in such a state that he has more good deeds, but in this world he has beaten someone, insulted someone, and devoured someone's wealth." Then his good deeds will be taken and given to these people and he will be left destitute.

(7) piety:

The Prophet ﷺ pointed to his blessed chest and said, "Taqumi means the state of the heart. It is more related to the heart and conscience and the inside than the obviously. This is a great pious person, although piety is less about outward appearance and more from within. With these words, there is also a hint from him that someone should not be despised and underestimated by seeing someone in an outwardly shabby state. That gems are hidden inside, similarly one should not judge someone to be pious by looking at his outward appearance. It may be that according to Shah Bhatai, the mouth is like Moses and the inside is the devil.

(8) mutual respect:

In the end, he said, "The blood, property and honor of a Muslim are forbidden to a Muslim. In the Islamic society and the Islamic government, the life, property, honor and honor of a Muslim are fully protected. The Prophet ﷺ said in his farewell sermon. Explaining the importance and greatness of protecting these three things, he said, "Your blood, your wealth, your honor and reputation are as honorable as today's day (new marriages) and this city (Makkah Mukarramah) is obligatory for respect." are." (Agreed) Neglecting the respect of these three is forbidden and a sin, as is the status of a Muslim's life, property, honor and dignity.

We should try to pay the mutual rights of our Muslim brothers to avoid sins and do good deeds.
