My Brother

I am the mirror of my brother,
And we care for one another,
To abuse him, is an evil act,
To fight him, is Kufr fact.

His life and honour I do hold,
Sacred, like the Prophet told,
This includes possessions too,
It is what all of us should do.

My brother I would not defame,
Nor call him an offensive name,
In dealings I am always fair,
To show him that I truly care.

And how could I ever backbite,
And harm him or deny his right?
I love for him what I love for me,

Though sometimes we do not agree.
He and I should work together,
And be united now and forever,
For one thing must be understood,
All Muslims form a brotherhood!
