So this means a believer is someone who truly understood the meaning of Islam and the meaning of a Muslim in details. One who is able to think and understand the Quran and Sunnah(Islam).One who then after using wisdom and logic, loves and practices Islam as it should be practiced with a great pure heart. Who is able to know logically what's right and wrong.Than the good deeds are counted according to the pure intentions.Allah swt than rewards the Muslim with whatever he/she wishes for and even much more .Islam is not something that you follow things blindly. Islam is a pure way of life and teachings that are followed with logical wisdom and pure heart. And once this is understood then the unity and brotherhood in Islam will be understood too.
BROTHERHOOD AND UNITY
Allah swt says in the Quran about brotherhood and commands us to act as brothers and sisters
"The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islâmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allâh, that you may receive mercy. "(Surah 49:10)
That's it, act as true brothers and sisters with each other and you won't be astray.Love and respect each other as brothers and sisters :)
Muhammad saws said the real Muslims must love each other as real brothers and sisters to.
"You will not enter Paradise until you have faith, and you will not have faith until you love each other..."(hadith)
Do understand that if you don't act like this then there'll be a total mess(which you can see clearly in our time that's exactly what's happening among the Ummah).Wish for each other good as you wish for yourself. Be open with each other but also know when to put a limit cos Allah swt doesn't love those who are extremists. Try as much as you can to be a humble/modest Muslim/Muslimahs.
Allah wants us to live together in peace, love and tranquility, not backbiting and hating one another for no reasons. Even with non Muslims we should live in peace and respect. A Muslim doesn't hate nor judge injustly.A Muslims helps any innocent person and loves his bro/sis for the sake of Allah swt.Let us be the wonderful Ummah that Allah swt wishes for us to be.
Muhammad saws said:
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.”
A muslim is like a real brother to another and this is why he(saws) also said ""None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." (Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 12) .
"You will not enter Paradise until you have faith, and you will not have faith until you love each other."
Shall I direct you to something which if you fulfill you will love one another? Spread peace among yourselves."(It was reported by Muslim)
"A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not oppress him, nor does he leave him at the mercy of others." (Sahih Muslim Book 032, Number 6219)
"Your smile in the face of your brothers is an act of charity."(hadith)
Even a smile is a charity and charity is worship and Allah swt is pleased with one when he does things for the sake of Allah swt.Allah swt says and His messenger saws that we should greet each other with "salaam aleykum"(peace of Allah be with you),even the greeting should be with peace so we should not violate peace.
So let us change and start uniting for the sake of Allah swt.Let us live in peace and love.Let us start practicing real Islam with pure heart and wisdom/logic.Let us really be Muslims !!
Allah says :
“The Mu’minoon are but a single Brotherhood.” (The Holy Qur’an, 49:10)
For this We sent a Messenger to you from among you to recite Our Signs to you and purify you and teach you the Book and Wisdom and teach you things you did not know before. (Surat 02:151)
Say: "Will you inform Allâh of your religion While Allâh knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allâh is All-Aware of everything.They regard as favour to you (O Muhammad SAW) that they have embraced Islâm. Say: "Count not your Islâm as a favour to me. Nay, but Allâh has conferred a favour upon you, that He has guided you to the Faith, if you indeed are true. Verily, Allâh knows the unseen of the heavens and the earth. And Allâh is the All-Seer of what you do.(Surah 49:16-18)
And follow what is revealed to you and be patient till Allah should give judgment, and He is the best of the judges. (Surah 10.109)
And follow what is revealed to you from your Lord; surely Allah is Aware of what you do
In the name of God, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful.
Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds.
The Compassionate, the Merciful. Ruler on the Day of Reckoning.
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.
Amen.(Surah Al Fatiha)
