Assalam Alaikum Wa Rehmath Ullahi Wa Barkatahu

 Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu 'anhu) said, that :- 
 Allaah's Messenger (salallaahu 'alaihi wa'sallam) said:-

The believer is a mirror for the believer,
and the believer is the brother of the believer.
He safeguards his property for him and defends him from behind.
So the description of his being a 'mirror' is very precise and profound showing the culmination of brotherhood and solidarity.
So your brother, O servant of Allaah,
 is an image of you yourself.
So if he behaves badly it is as if you are the one who has behaved badly,
and if he makes a mistake, it is as if you have made a mistake.
So he is a mirror for you and then an image of you yourself!
So do not treat him except with mildness and gentleness.
If you do not behave with your brother in this manner,
then this will be something which weakens:

Its chain of narration is Hasan.


The Religion of Islaam is the religion which Allaah sent Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) with. Allaah abrogated with it all other religions, and perfected it for His slaves, and completed with it His favour upon them, and chose it for them as a religion. So no religion besides it will be accepted.
Allaah the Exalted said:
"Muhammad is not a father from any of your men, rather he is the Messenger of Allaah, and the last of the prophets."
[Sooratul Ahzaab33:40]

And Allaah the Exalted said;-
"Today I have perfected for you your Religion, and completed for you My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islaam as a religion." [SooratulMaa'idah 3:5]

And Allaah the Exalted said:-

"And whoever takes other than Islaam as a religion, it will never be accepted from him, and he will be in the Hereafter - from the losers." [Soorah Aali 'Imraan 3:85]

 the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"

Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone!
{Al-Hasan Al-Basree}
