Loving for Others what You Love for Yourself

لا يكون المؤمن مؤمنا حتى يرضى لأخيه ما يرضى لنفسه

One will not be a true believer until he wishes for his brother that which he wishes for himself.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once quoted the above Hadith and thereafter explained:

If one has to practise on this Hadith and inculcate its teaching in his life, then all internal disputes and arguments will come to an end. However, when we wish to receive more while we wish for others to receive less, then how can these quarrels ever be resolved? (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 96)
