A Moment with Our Prophet, Muhammad (S) — By Imam Zijad Delic
Day 9: Wish for Others What We Wish for Ourselves
Reported by Anas (r) that Muhammad (S) said:
“None of you will have (complete) faith till he/she wishes for his/her brother/sister what
he/she likes for himself/herself.”
Source: Bukhari
Transliteration: “La Yu’minu Ahadukum Hatta Yuhibbu Li Akhihi Ma Yuhibbu Li Nafsihi.”
Note: The concept of justice cannot be defined any better than it is in this statement. In this narration the Prophet Muhammad (s) reaffirms the criteria of justice commonly known as the “Golden rule of Moses.” In molding our personality as well as in building a society based on universal justice, this hadith containing one “golden rule” of enormous scope can take us a very long way. Although we often are familiar with such hadiths, we do not scrutinize our life, behavior, and aspirations in light of this simple criteria of justice. If we do not like to be harmed, we should not harm anyone else, and this is true irrespective of race, color, nationality, gender, language, or any other artificial basis of distinguishing different segments of humanity. If we do not like to be offended, we should not offend others, Muslims or non-Muslims. If we like to be treated kindly, we should treat others kindly.
If we expect fairness from others, we should be fair in our conduct and judgment with all.

Two lights

عن عبدالله بن عباس -رضي الله عنهما- قال

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

بينما جبريل -عليه السلام- قاعد عند النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- سمع نَقِيضَا من فوقه

While Jibril (Gabriel) was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), he heard a sound above him.

فرفع رأسه، فقال: هذا باب من السماء فُتِحَ اليوم ولم يفتح قط إلا اليوم

He lifted his head, and said: “This is a gate which has been opened in heaven today. It was never opened before.”

فنزل منه مَلَكٌ، فقال: هذا ملك نزل إلى الأرض لم ينزل قط إلا اليوم، فسلم وقال

Then an angel descended through it, he said:
“This is an angel who has come down to earth. He never came down before.”
He sent greetings and said:

:أبشر بنُورين أُوتِيْتَهُما لم يُؤتهما نَبِيٌّ قبلك)

“Rejoice with two lights given to you. Such lights were not given to any Prophet before you.
These (lights) are:

، فاتحة الكتاب، وخَوَاتِيمُ سورة البقرة

Fatihah-til-Kitab (Surat Al-Fatihah), and the concluding Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah.

لن تقرأ بحرف منها إلا أُعْطِيتَهُ

You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings it contains.” [Muslim]
