A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim

A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you, O servants of Allah, brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt (i.e doesn’t disrespect him). Piety is right here-and he pointed to his chest (i.e heart) three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. The whole of a Muslim for another Muslim is inviolable (i.e. sacred, sanctified): his blood, his property, and his honour.”
[Muslim]
