We are currently living in a situation where all types of rights are being violated especially that of a brother to another brother. Let us try to implement some of the basic rights towards each other.
Abu Hurairah (Radhiallaho anha) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Every Muslim has five rights over another Muslim (i.e., he has to perform five duties for another Muslim): to return the greetings, to visit the sick, to accompany funeral processions, to accept an invitation, to respond to the sneezer [i.e., to say: `Yarhamuk-Allah (may Allah bestow His Mercy on you),’ when the sneezer praises Allah].”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
