Treat people the way you would love to be treated

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said that,

“Whoever wishes to be delivered from the fire and enter the garden should die with faith in Allah and the Last Day and should treat the people as he wishes to be treated by them.”[Sahih Muslim 1844 a]

This hadees is strongly correlated with the Golden Rule which is “do as to others what you want to yourself”.

Other Hadees which says:

Abdullah ibn Al-Muntafiq reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, teach me what will save me from the punishment of Allah and admit me into Paradise.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him, establish the prescribed prayers, and give the obligatory charity.” And I think the Prophet said, Fast the month of Ramadan, and treat people the way you would love to be treated, and do not treat them the way you would hate to be treated.” [al-Mu’jam al-Kabīr 15833]

Yazeed ibn Asad reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to me, “O Yazeed, love for people what you love for yourself.

In another narration, the Prophet said, “Do not treat people except in the way you would love to be treated by them.”[Musnad Aḥmad 16220]

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Whoever would love for himself to be just with people, then let him treat people the way he would love to be treated.”[Shu’ab al-Imān 10375]

So that’s it folks!


So those Islamophobes and their acolytes who propagate the myth that Islam does not have an equivalent to the golden rule any where in its sacred texts should go back and read Islamic texts carefully.This not only highlights the shoddy scholarship, lack of intellectual integrity, flimsy research of the Islamophobes but a deeper pyschological hatred on the part of the Islamophobes.  They could have easily found this hadith, as they should know well that Sahih Muslim is one of the major texts of Islam.  Yet most of these Islamophobes don’t even bother to learn. How long will their sheep follow them into the abyss of ignorance and hate? Their only motive is to slander Islam and present it as evil and barbaric. They don’t wish to present these sayings of Islam as their agenda is to dehumanize Muslims . But today the facts have expose Islamophobes!
