Hadith: 26 Jan 2014 (24 Rabi’ul Awwal 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or is oppressed". A man enquired: "O Messenger of Allah! I help him when he is oppressed, but how can I help him when he is an oppressor?” He [SAWW](PBUH) said, "You can keep him from committing oppression. That will be your help to him".

[Al-Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Hadith Number 624].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 05. “And We wished to do a favor to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land” This Hadith contains a very comprehensive injunction to eliminate disturbance and tyranny in the Muslim society. It not only ordains helping the oppressed but also encourages people endowed with moral courage to stop the oppressor’s oppression. Doing so requires great courage and boldness, but Muslims would be able to do full justice to their duty of wishing well to their fellow Muslims when they develop the moral courage to stop the oppressor from tyranny, or at least protest against it verbally.
