Ramadan - Episode 26


In The Shade of Ramadan - Season 2


Episode 26 - Brotherhood/Sisterhood

~ Zaied Abbassi gives advice on increasing brotherhood/sisterhood.


AL-QURAN : An-Nuur(24)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

"O you who believe! Enter not houses other than your own, until you have asked permission and greeted those in them, that is better for you, in order that you may remember. (24:27)


Al-Bara' bin `Azib (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded us to do seven things: to visit the sick, to follow the funeral (of a dead believer), to invoke the Mercy of Allah upon one who sneezes (i.e., by saying to him: Yarhamuk-Allah), to support the weak, to help the oppressed, to promote the greeting of `As-Salamu `Alaikum', and to help those who swear to do something to keep their oaths.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Muslims have obligations towards one another. The fulfillment of this social responsibility creates among them mutual love, a sense of cohesion and feelings of respect for one another.


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

"By Him in Whose Hand is my life! You will not enter Jannah until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I inform you of something which, if you do, you will love one another? Promote greetings amongst yourselves.''



Iman is a prerequisite for entry to Jannah. Whereas mutual love among Muslims is complementary to it, and this quality can only be attained by giving a social character to the Islamic form of greeting, that is to say, `As-Salamu `Alaikum.'
