Muslim's Right Over Other Muslim

On Saturday night, we went to masjid to hear Sheikh Hasan Abunar.
The kids wanted to hear his lecture.
He was very good in reciting Al Qur'an, too.
His lecture was so easy to understand.
All the kids sat and listened to his lecture. They were really enjoying to hear his lecture.
Sheikh said that "Reciting Al Qur'an in masjid is parfum for the masjid."

That night, the lecture was about "Muslim's Right Over Other Muslim.

There are six Muslim's Right over other Muslim.

  • First, When we meet Muslim, we have to say salam or salute.
    In In this world (dunia), we say salam.
    In the Hereafter (Akhirah), we will say salam, too.
    Nowaday, Muslim say: "Yo brother" or "Hi" to other Muslim.
    There is no hasanat(reward) in saying that.
    We as Muslim should say salam to other Muslim.

    You will hear when Muslim ask to the Muslim kids, "How are you?"
    Then the Muslim kids will answer "Good" instead of saying "Alhamdulillah."
    The kids should say in Islamic way to other Muslim.

    Other words that Muslim should not say, such as:
    • God, Muslim should say Allah.
    • Mecca, Muslim should say Makkah.
    • Mosque, Muslim should say Masjid.
    • Mohd, Muslim should say Muhammad.
      Mohd means dog.
    • Moslem, we should say Muslim.
      Moslem in Urdu means dark.
    • etc.

    You can say in English to non Muslim.
    But in masjid, in khutbah, with other Muslim, in salam, we should say Islamic words.

    Please do not forget that young Muslim should say salam to the old Muslim first.
    This is one of Islamic manner, adab.

  • Second, when Muslim invites, we should come or accept the invitation.
    If you know this person, he is honest, we should accept the invitation, especially wedding invitation (walimah).

  • Third, when he seeks your advice, advise him.

  • Fourth, When A Muslim sneezes and says Alhamdulillah, we should say Yarhamakullah.
    Sneezing means the body function or healthy, we should say Alhamdulillah.
    The one who hears, say Yaharmakullah.
    This is wajib (obligatory), when we sneeze, we should say Alhamdulillah.

  • Fifth, if A Muslim becomes sick, we should visit him.
    We visit each other for fisabilillah.

  • Sixth, when Muslim dies, we should follow his funeral.
    We should help and give food for the deceased's family.

  • We should help everybody, including non Muslim.
  • We also have to understand the society and the culture of the country where we live in, beside the Sunnah.
  • We have to be nice.
  • We have to teach Islam to other.
  • We should have our time for deen at least two hours in a day.
