How Sound Are Our Hearts Towards Our Brothers?

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

From that which indicates that your chest is sound towards your brothers is [your] supplicating for them without their knowing. Allāh mentions how believers are with their brothers in their saying:

وَلَا تَجْعَلْ فِي قُلُوبِنَا غِلًّا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا

… and don’t put any hatred or envy in our hearts against those upon the faith¹ [of Islam] …. (Al-Ḥashr, 10)

Ibn Al-Saʿdī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

This is from the virtues of being upon the faith [of Islam]—believers benefit from each other and supplicate for each other due to their sharing a [common] faith.

¹Faith in Islam—īmān—consists of speech, action, and beliefs; it increases with acts of obedience to Allāh and decreases with acts of disobedience to Him (tr.)
