Hadith 13:None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself

عن أبي حمزةَ أنسِ بنِ مالكٍ رَضِي اللهُ عَنْهُ خادمِ رسولِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عن النَّبيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قالَ: {لاَ يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى يُحِبَّ لأَِخِيهِ مَا يُحِبُّ لِنَفْسِهِ}رواه البخاريُّ ومسلمٌ.

On the authority of Anas bin Malik, the servant of the messenger of Allah, that the prophet said :

“None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.” related by Bukhari and Muslim

When a Hadith says none of you truly believes comes in a hadith then that means that something obligatory is coming. If a person is sinful if he does not do it but it does not take him out of Islam. The person has the foundation of the religion (tawheed, salah, arkan and did not do shirk or any sin that takes one of out Islam). So when a person doesn’t do an element that is obligatory but not from the foundations of Imaan then this is regarded as a deficiency in ones Imaan.

The negation is Eman here doesn’t negate the Eman , you dint negate the person is a Muslim . And doesn’t talk about the deeds . Doesn’t means takfeer or you are not doing deeds but meaning .

The ‘ulamaa have said that the meaning of the hadeeth is that the one who does not have this characteristic has not believed with the complete and perfect eemaan, while he has already achieved the basic level of eemaan.

Here it talks about the Waajib Eman ! You are short coming in your Eman . None of you have believe as he should !

Innama meaning is truly ! Two ways if understanding innamal muminun ikhlaas
1- no brotherhood truly exist except brotherhood of Islam : if we regard WALAA Wal Baraa . Brother of Eman is stronger than brother of Islam . If your blood brother goes hellfire you have nothing to do with him . While if your brother in Islam …
2- limiting proper Eman to the Eman that comes about when brotherhood exist . Proper Eman only exist when there is brotherhood . Until you have that brotherhood of Islam you won’t have that Eman .

This Hadith is warning against Such as jealousy , ribbah, slandering ,

When the AYAAH is mention masculine its for both man and women unless you have a evidence that is nit including for women . There are general term that have a complete .ما everything , in your Deen primarily then worldly .

But when mentioned in feminine then it’s only for women

Mantooq you love for your brother what you love for yourself
Mafhoom you hate for your bright what you hate for yourself (it is understood)

Jealousy shows your Eman is lower ,when you see your brother has something you imagine this has been given to you and you feel happy , this only exist in Islam and believing in Qadr . What Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) gave so and so is from the Qadr . Don’t you believe Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) Can give you the same , why doesn’t he say o Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) give this person more and give me . This is part of sincerity in duaa. This religion is Deen an nasihaa. You love to be advised when you do a mistake . Deal with others as you wish to be dealt with .

This also contain Al ithaar, giving up your right even if they have a need for that . Example of the Muhajireen and the Ansaar. This is secret key to success .

Angels makes Dua for you to Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) when you make Duaa For others . When you loves for other what you love for yourself then it increase you in nothing but goodness .


The hadeeth negates the perfection/completeness of Faith (eemaan) for someone who does not wish for his Muslim brother that which he likes for himself.
That a believer will not want something to happen to another Muslim whichhe would not like for himself.
