The golden rule in Islam which it calls upon Muslims is to treat others the way they would like to be treated. This principle was stated multiple times by our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), so it is our responsibility to share and implement this important rule in our behaviors to others regardless of Muslim or disbeliever.

 

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said:

“None of you has faith until he loves for his brother or his neighbor what he loves for himself.” [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 72]

 

In another narration, he sallallahu alayhi wasallam said:

None of you has faith until he loves for the people what he loves for himself; and until he loves a person only for the sake of Allah the Exalted.”[Musnad Ahmad, Number 13463, Sahih]

 

An-Nawawi comments on this tradition, hadith is:

“It is better to interpret this as brotherhood in general, such that it includes the disbeliever and the Muslim. So he should love for his brother, the disbeliever, what he loves for himself which is his entering Islam, just as he should love for his brother Muslim that he remains in Islam. For this reason, it is recommended to supplicate for the disbeliever to be guided. The meaning of love here is an intention for good and benefit, and this meaning is religious love, not human love.” [Sharh Arba’een An-Nawawi, Hadith Number 13]

 

In another report, he (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“By Him in whose Hand is my soul, a servant does not believe until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself of goodness.” [Musnad Ahmad, Number 12734, Sahih]

 

 

Abdullah ibn Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

“Whoever would love to be delivered from the Hellfire and entered into Paradise, then let him die with faith in Allah and the Last Day, and let him treat the people the way he would love to be treated.” [Musnad Ahmad, Number 6768, Sahih]

 

 

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

“You will not enter Paradise until you believe and you will not believe until you love each other. Shall I show you something that, if you did, you would love each other? Spread peace between yourselves.”  [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 96]

 

 

Abu Muntafiq (may Allah be pleased with him) said,

-O Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), teach me what will save me from Allah’s punishment and enter me into Paradise.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) answered:

-Worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him; establish the prescribed prayers; give the obligatory charity; (and I think he said) fast the month of Ramadan; and however you love for the people to treat you, then treat them that way; and however you hate for the people to treat you, then do not treat them that way.

[At-Tabarani, Al-Ma’jam Al-Kabeer, Number 15833, Sahih]

 

Khalid ibn Abdullah Al-Qasri (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: He was giving a sermon upon the pulpit, saying that his father told him that his grandfather said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

-Do you love Paradise?

– Yes, O Messenger of Allah.

The Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then said:

Then love for your brother what you love for yourself.

[Musnad Ahmad, Number 16219, Sahih]

 

 

Mu’adh (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

“The best faith is to love for the sake of Allah, to hate for the sake of Allah, to work your tongue in the remembrance of Allah, and to speak goodness or remain silent.””
