Today in the world of social media and online influencers, it can be very, very easy to lose sight of the rights that a Muslim has upon another Muslim. It is a serious thing when you take to a keyboard or you get yourself in front of a camera and you're addressing another Muslim the Prophet Mohammed sighs Saddam had a lot to say about the care and sincerity and loyalty and respect that we're supposed to have for fellow Muslims in an authentic hadith that Muslim recorded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that to house I do wala Tana Joshua, what are Tibet? What outsider but what are they in Babel? Comala they end up while Kuno about Allah He Atlanta and Muslim

00:00:37 --> 00:01:10

holy Muslim Lai Allahu Allah Giroux poli occluder, who at Taqwa Hoonah. And then he pointed to his chest three times the meaning of this hadith and it doesn't end there is that when it comes to how a Muslim should treat another Muslim, there is a certain protocol, we don't treat Muslims the way we treat non Muslims. The fact that you are a person of the shahada, the fact that you are a person of the Qibla the fact that you are a person of the Sunnah, or that you are ahead of sunnah has certain rights, right? It entails certain rights, and you have to take those rights seriously, even when your brother airs even when your brother makes a mistake, even when you want to guide them back to

00:01:10 --> 00:01:47

the truth. There has to be a protocol and there are red lines and there are guardrails. There are certain things that should not be transgressed. And so one of the more comprehensive parts of the Hadith the prophesy centum said, Kunal Are you bad Allahu Aquarena be worshipers of Allah are servants of Allah brothers as brothers. So the first thing that we have to understand is that yes, we're not supposed to envy one another despise one another. We're not supposed to carry rancor and hatred for each other in our hearts. He doesn't oppress his Muslim brother he doesn't belittle or despise his Muslim brother and then at the end of the Hadith the prophets of Allah he was Saddam he

00:01:47 --> 00:02:27

says he has been written in Asscher and yeah Kira Han Muslim, he said, it's sufficiently evil meaning that the evil that is done from despising or belittling your brother Muslim is sufficient evil. So take all the other possible evils that you could do, whether it's Xena, whether it's good or whether it's stealing, whether it's backbiting all these sorts of other sins He says it's sufficiently evil that you would be little or despise your brother and then the final thing the Prophet Mohammed sighs Solomon said in this hadith extremely important and maybe even more comprehensive Kulu Muslim in an aisle Muslim Hara, that every part of a Muslim is haram inviolable,

00:02:27 --> 00:03:06

we could say sacred in the larger broader understanding of that term for another Muslim demo who will Mata who are edible that His blood is sacred, his blood is inviolable, his wealth is inviolable, and his reputation is inviolable. Now, people make mistakes and people need correction, and the truth needs to be clarified. But we need to be absolutely sure that when we're clarifying the truth and when we're attempting to guide people back to the truth, that we are not crossing the line and treating our brothers and faith as if they were Kufa that there is a certain protocol, there's a certain etiquette, there's a certain way to talk to to address to and to deal with the

00:03:06 --> 00:03:42

mistakes of your brother and sister Muslim, it has a higher demand on us than if it were any other else or someone who's xindi someone who is trying to literally change Islam saying that he doesn't believe in the Hadith, or he doesn't believe that the prayer is obligatory, these sorts of things. We have to be discerning as Muslims, we do not treat everybody the same. We do not treat your Muslim brother who is a person of the shahada and a person of prayer and a person of vicar and a person who is of the Sunnah, even if they don't do everything perfectly, they are of the sun and ascribe themselves to the sun. Now, you do not treat them like as Indian, you do not treat them like a cafe,

00:03:42 --> 00:04:05

you do not treat them like somebody else. There are very important aspects of baseline rules and etiquette that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us and if we're serious, and if we want success in our data, and if we want success, and then we have to abide by these protocols, and we have to make sure that we play in bounds and that we don't cross the lines we're Allahu Tada Adam
