As a Muslim, you need to build up strong relationship amongst all people. Without building up the right relationship, your faith is not at all complete and sufficient. This fact is often forgotten by many Muslims and these bonds are often broken over some minor arguments and disputes. Most of the Muslims lay down focus on various aspects of worship of Islam, while neglecting the core values that help in promoting Islam. Prayers, Fasting, Charity, Hajj and Remembrance of Allah and some similar acts of worships are regarded as the basis of Islam. They are very significant for establishing the faith of a Muslim and also help in building their relationship with Almighty Allah (SWT), they also play a vital role in increasing piety.

But the important point to keep in mind is that Islam teaches all mankind various aspects of faith, which show the manners about how you can deal with others. All these manners are often neglected by the Muslims. Unfortunately, it is very common to find Muslims who perform their prayers and fast perfectly, still they lack the basic etiquettes that were taught by Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). It is a fact that the most vital and important pillar of Islam is dealing with others. This is regarded as the concept of brotherhood in Islam. This concept is also mentioned and explained in Quran and Sunnah through the practical actions of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). There are certain rights that must be followed and kept in mind during the brotherhood.

There are various verses that give the relevant and important lessons about brotherhood. The first command comes from Almighty Allah (SWT) for the believers. This “Bond of Allah” is regarded as the religion of Islam and they also love one another. It is this unity and the brotherhood between the believers. For the better understanding of teachings of Islam, you must http://www.qurantutor.com/learn-quran.php - learn the Quran . Then Almighty Allah tells mankind that they were enemies in the beginning, but later on they were united so they became brothers. This is regarded as a great blessing and favor that he has done for the believers. Almighty Allah (SWT) also informs that this unity and brotherhood will save mankind from the fire.

It is said about the brotherhood by Almighty Allah:

"Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not dispute with one another, otherwise you will fail and lose your strength. Have patience - Allah is with those who are patient." (Al-Anfal, 46)

From the incident of Ashab ul-Kahf, we see one of the example of al wala' wal bara'. They escaped from their jahil society from separate space and ALLAH gather them under a tree.before this gathering,they didn't know each other.But while they became sure about the intention,then they become like a body. From Ibn kathir's Al Bidaya wan Nihaya you'll find this story broadly.we should learn lessons from it.

"while neglecting the core values that help in promoting Islam"

      What are these core values?

"It is a fact that the most vital and important pillar of Islam is dealing with others"

    What textual evidence can you site from Quran and    Sunnah to support the above assertion?


Anisafatima, do you have any relationship to the site suggested (www.qurantutor.com)?


"Almighty Allah (SWT) also informs that this unity and brotherhood will save mankind from the fire"

        Where in the Quran are we informed of this?

Allah in Surah Al Hujurat ch 49 v 13 says that he has created us from single pair and has divided us in different regions and colours so that we can recognise and develop harmony among ourselves,the best among others is the one who is closer to Allah,pious,does good deeds.

This ayah is the first one to come to my mind:

And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah, and be not divided among yourselves; And remember with gratitude Allah's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided (3:103)
